We planted potatoes, beets, carrots, green beans, garlic, zucchini and our grape and tomatoes plants. Looks like the other things we wanted to plant will have to wait for next year.

Dj and his two children came Sunday afternoon and stayed for 2 nights. Dj helped carry some big old windows up to the barn, take down the old shed and a few other things. I sure appreciate him helping out here with things. Thank you son.

Oh our youngest son and his wife won't be moving to Seattle until September :). They are hoping to find a place to rent outside of Seattle where it isn't quite so expensive.

I have been drying some of herbs the last couple of weeks, oregano, spearmint, peppermint, thyme etc.

Washing the truck, did their car first.
