Paperwork, paperwork, paperwork… SAVE THE TREES!!

Wow… so today our lender is wanting a copy of everything from taxes to blood type. (Not really, but you get the idea). We are taking a stand and trying to do everything electronically. Hopefully, we’ll be able to save some trees in the process. (Crossing fingers) Honestly, my head is spinning with all the legalities of the purchase. I guess I’d forgotten how much there is to do to buy a new home!

As for the “farm”… our container garden is doing well. We tried to transplant some of Keith’s blackberry plants so we can transport them to the farm. So far… it looks like the transplant might have been too big of a shock to it. We are watching and hoping that they survive. I’ll keep you posted.

Other than that… our potatoes, onions, pumpkins, squash, peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries are doing really well. 🙂 I think we may have to put up a growing light for the garden into Keith’s shop at the farm at first. There are 2.5 metric TONS of grasshoppers out there right now. If they see our beautiful garden… they will think that the salad bar has moved in just for them. LOL! Since I’m not keen on providing them with an organic picnic … or provide them with a vat of homemade ranch dressing… I think the shop will be the safest place to finish this growing season. Who knows… it may extend our growing season well beyond the first snow!

Okay… I’m off to finish baking peanut butter cookies for tomorrow’s adventure. We are helping some friends build fire breaks to protect their beautiful lodge in the mountains from the High Park fire. So far, the cabin is safe… but the fire is unpredictable and they need our help!

“We’re blessed to bless again!”
