November Begins.


Just before the worst job of fall happens,
the Big Leaf Maples in the back yard treat us with a spectacular display! Something to remember while recovering from picking them up again.

Fall work.


This is a fence for climbers beside our basement patio. It has had a very messy Clematis growing on it, which went 6 feet above the top shown here and up to the rail on the deck above. The original netting used to climb on was plastic bird netting used to cover fruit trees in the Okanagan and too light for the task. This is stainless steel stucco wire.
If you look closely you will see there are never too many clamps! There is a slot in the center of the 2X4 that will take a spline to hold the wire in place.

The start of year 2020
Twenty some garlic planted in the upstairs raised bed. The white is a buried divider to keep the asparagus out of the garlic/lettuce side of the bed.

This is our Gravenstein apple tree. Moved once from the side yard where it didn't get enough sunlight, to the middle of the back yard. The plastic bags, sand filled, weight the limbs so they turn down and keep the height of the tree down. It is an older way of dwarfing an apple tree
