|The Blue patch are the sleeping bags in the middle of the tire garden.|
The dogs loved it! Pretty exciting sleeping out with Mom and Dad. Cleo snuggled between us, claiming more than her share of sleeping bag for the whole night.
|Come on Mom! Plenty of room. We'll just warm up your side..|
The first night around 3 a.m. a cow had lost her calf and spent an hour or so letting the world know of her search. Last night went a lot smoother, dogs settled down and the cows were in the top pasture until almost sun up.
This week we repaired the main water line to the Green House, which had broken at a valve.
|Honest, the excavation is safer than it looks!|

Ah, nothing like running water close at hand. We are now fine tuning the drip system.
|The I gallon per hour drippers are moderated by an inline valve|
We have a hand hose that comes off a reel to water the small potted plants. And an inside faucet that I can run a hose from to water the nearby cherry tree:
|A Prolific, and still small, Cherry Tree.|
|Binta Lake fire: About 10 Klicks away|
The Martin Mars water bomber is now flying from Fraser lake and is busy all day long.
Yesterday we drove to Smithers to pick up some parts for the irrigation system. Well, O.K. truth be told we drove the 200 klicks for a Venti Starbucks Coffee Frapachino. And it was delicious.
Speaking of delicious, I made some tofu poutine and a stir fry for supper. I cut the firm tofu up into small cheese like cubes and fried it in olive oil with mushrooms and onions. Not even close to the artery clogging, mind boggling tasty beyond belief, real thing. But it was a Delicious facsimile.
|Nice way to dress up a spud.|
Today's projects are fine tuning the drip system, getting the Tomatoes and Cukes strung up, installing H.I.D. lighting and in the afternoon doing some gardening for a friend who is unable to walk due to surgery.
Maybe top that off with another night under the stars. Ah, it's a tough life..
