Today while I was out running errands, Chris decided to build the grape arbor we had been talking about for some time now....
I think its beautiful! He used cedar from our woods and made the posts and cross beam. Our next step is to train the vines up and over the arbor . These plants are a year old. Last year the deer ate them and this year we were late in pruning as we should. But with no deer to much the leaves and correct pruning they are really taking off!
Next year we should be getting plenty of grapes if all goes well..
I gota a wonderful penpal letter from a friend down under! She sent the sweetest little book mark and some Austrailian tea to try out... I am going to do that tonight for my after supper tea!
I also FINALLY divided my poor aloe that was trapped in a small pot and dying a slow death into severeal pots..
I've only been putting that off since March...
Off to eat a wonderful pasta salad.
I got the recipe from the Whoile Foods News lette rBLT Pasta Salad Whole Foods . Looked like a winner to us... its got bacon!
Hope everyone has a fine day.... all day long!
