Looks like an awesome plan for the earthworks, exited to see how it turns out.

It has been so long since my last upload, that's because nothing has happened here.... just kidding!

we had lots of snow and then a hard freeze for a few days. It was really beautiful.
here are some pictures of things that never should have thawed.

heavy rain in the forecast, so we build a tent over the greenhouse with a giant tarp that Eric sent along.

Saturday! So nice to take a day to rest and relax.

I finally fixed this little pruning saw and then used it to harvest a Saskatoon branch to make a couple spoons

GEEZ! You guys are showing us everything but good progress on that tiny greenhouse! I'm going to have to scrounge up my MBA Cert., my lounge chair from storage, and my whip and MANAGE the project. A couple of you would have to work being a runner and a coffee supplier though!

JUST KIDDING GUYS & GALS!

It does look like you're making some progress learning about hard work along with the progress on the greenhouse!

Despite persistent snow, rain, and freezing temperatures, we still managed to install two rafters and two posts on the first wofati greenhouse this week. One of the rafters has 5 joints across its length. That's a lot of joints for me.
