Garden Harvest

 2020 was a good year for our garden! Everyone got involved to help harvest the potatoes. This year we planted red and Yukon gold. 

Stacia and Krista 

Millie actually has a good nose for locating potatoes. LOL 

Benny dropped by to help! 

This year's harvest. Rather than hills, we made rows and planted in the top of the rows. We had a good number of potatoes. I should have put more straw or dirt around them as they grew...quite a few were green. 

This year we knew to leave the dirt on them and to lay them out to dry before we store them for the winter. 

We're still harvesting zucchini! We took a wheelbarrow full of squash to the church. What our church didn't use the Russian church which meets after us did. All was used. 

We're still getting plenty of greens! 

Odd looking carrots

Evidence of a moose visiting. 

Time to relax after a long day of work in the garden.

Auntie Rissa Comes to Visit

he month has begun on a highpoint... Today we received a visitor from Juneau - Auntie Rissa!!!!  Larissa's job involves traveling this way every few months - or when there are big meetings and conferences. 

We couldn't pass up the fun of gathering to spend time with her. We met at CoRielle's and had pizza and cake, played games and caught up on the craziness of Juneau. 

Stacia made a quick cake.
