Putting in a garden…


…is hard work and Mike hasn’t done it in a number of years.  It seems he got “the bug” again after our gardening experience of last year

This new garden is a big one.  See for yourself what he has worked on all weekend. Watch the video

It’s long and it’s L-shaped. Katie can put in the 365 or so basil plants that we need to get all the pesto she can make.  Mike didn’t just work though, we had some nice guests, the usual crowd actually and therefore we had the first cocktails and Friday Night Fish Fry at the Villa Marine Restaurant with the Wayfarer Bachelor

This was the view from the deck at the Villa Marine Restaurant Friday night.  That’s Elberta across the bay.
More and more boats are arriving each day!


Canadians flying north and looking down on our dinner plates, hehe

Ok, that’s how Memorial Day Weekend started and it ended today with Martin, from Canada, sitting outside with my 3 men shooting the breeze.

We had a great weekend with great guests. Yahoo, let the summer begin.

  1. Holy Moly, that is a large garden! You will need to keep us up to date with its progress. 🙂

  2. Don’t the deer keep all the plants trimmed down to nuthin’?
    We had to put a 6 foot fence around our tiny one in Kaleva and electic fence in Ludville

    • The deer that live on our property don’t eat any of what we plant – ever. not the flowers nor the vegetables. I think they like us.
      So, let’s not talk about it any more because I don’t want to jinx that.

  3. WOW-you must be farmers…”outstanding” in your field! I’m impressed!

  4. Are you doing the raised garden again? Any watermelon in our future?

    Geez! You could start your own Farmer’s Market!!

  6. Lordy that’s a big garden. That will keep you on your toes this summer. Can’t wait to see it’s progress. Nice to see Joe back. Still single? Any match making plans again this time?

    • I will have the time to look after the garden this year. I have hired help and she is nice and good. She’ll make it possible to grow food, interact with the guests and I’ll look stunning (I wish)

      Yes, this was Joe’s first weekend, another long one is coming up this month after he gets back from New York. He had a great time this weekend. Still single…

  7. Wow, It looks great, now to keep those darn weeds out of such a large garden will be a chore.
    Hope to see you soon. Kay & Sammy

  8. Any pumpkins for the fall weekend in Frankfort?
