Sorry folks for our lack of posts. I wish I could say we have been busy working away on house projects, but alas, thats not the case. We did recently purchase a 1920’s butlers pantry and stripped most of the laquer paint off of the wood and hardware. Unfortunately, the summer heat is at its [...]
Our second project for Easter weekend was planting our blueberry plants from Waters Blueberry Farm. After two trips for Peat Moss and mulch (we underestimated the amount,) we have three plants that should yield blueberries all summer long!

We posted awhile back that the burned up house across the street from us was purchased and that work had begun. We are pleased to announce that Ol’ Burney is almost finished being renovated.
