One Saturday in May

There is so much to get done in our short spring/summer here in Alaska. I find it hard to snatch time to blog or edit videos. We work all day (sometimes until midnight), and then fall into bed to repeat the next day. We are enthusiastic in our effort to "work" now, so we can "play" when the salmon begin to run. 

In an effort to make progress," I am not going to edit photos - just post and go. 

May 26th - and the chicks are still timid about the great outdoors. 
Note Olga the guard of the chicken house

The garden plot is our main agenda today. Benny is a great cheerleader...though some of us are fairly distracted by his cuteness.

 Izaak had the day to help....the tilling often had to stop as they  pulled long lengths of  rope from the ground. Our guess is the previous owners fed their horses here and simply dropped hay bales and cut the rope - letting it stay where it lay.....and so....
Nolan, Michael & Izaak 

We also worked on the compost and burn piles. Nolan manned the fire a good portion of the day. 
Nolan and Izaak finally "helped" the chicks out to the run and shut the doors behind them. Our hope is they will get used to it an hour or so at a time. 

Stacia decided it was a good day to work inside. She cleaned, helped me move transplants and learned how to make doughnuts. Everyone proclaimed her experiment a great success. 

Jared and Larissa stopped by late afternoon. We always enjoy unexpected visits.  We ended the day with s'mores around the fire.

Yes, I was in the manure in crocs.  I soaked my feet.
