As a native Canadian, planting parts of the garden in December
feels extremely foreign. (In a super amazing kind of way!) This week Bill,
Billy and I worked hard on cleaning up the garden area which is a nice big
fenced in area with raised plots.
There is a 5-year-old asparagus section, which means yummy fresh
spears come March! There is a section with some berries. There was also fencing
installed within some beds for climbing plants. We have planted peas, snow peas
and nasturtiums so far. Planting in December makes me nervous but we will see
Does anyone out there know what this plant in our garden is? We have a bunch of it, it has no aroma. It has both 1-foot sticks and ground cover.
We also spent time this week fixing an 8-10’ drop in the driveway near the gate. Which allows me the opportunity to introduce you, with this awesome image, to Billy Orr, our “photographer in residence” ROCK STAR!!!
This week Wayne (our builder) also had out a couple of contractors who specialize in deconstructing houses in ways that allow for as much salvage as possible. This has been our dream, to give away and to use as much as possible. It was very encouraging to see how creative and green people are willing to be.
This is the house as it is today, it will be gently deconstructed in a couple of months to make way for beautiful new buildings and venues.
From the Cedars Team, we want to wish you a very happy holiday season filled with time with people you love, amazing food and lots of fun!
