Tonight we had an excellent dinner! Maple dijon ham, roast chicken, salt and pepper roasted potatoes (my favorite) as well as the first greens picked from the berm tossed into a salad, there was also roasted cauliflower and fresh bread!
Great job Oliver!

You love the roses - so do I. I wish
The sky would rain down roses, as they rain
From off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white
And soft to tread on. They would fall as light
As feathers, smelling sweet: and it would be
Like sleeping and yet waking, all at once.

--George Eliot

Wow, so there's so many people you've moved dinner out of the double wide? Is this all the time, or was it a special dinner?

The roses are lovely.

Two of the gappers Renee and Connor took some time to put in a stone lined drainage ditch for our water hydrant. The ditch ends in a micro swale with a willow tree planted in it.
