Extra Helpers for Project


Just what I needed this week end were some extra hands with assembling the storage bench.


May I introduce Eric. He has been coming with his father on Saturdays, to help me with the lawn care at the farm and Das Kleine Haus. He is 12 years old and eager to earn some extra money for school.

Since there is so little storage for gardening tools at the new home, I'm trying to maximize it with some outdoor containers.


His sister, Erica, also tagged along this past week end. She was ready to help her big brother.









I'm happy to see this label in the right place....











In all the years I have owned the farm, this is the first year to have help mowing and trimming the lawn. While the farm sale is pending, I definitely need the extra help with 2 lawns.


I'm so very lucky Eric's father agreed to help out. I think he is a little camera shy....








Even though, Mama works in the local bakery during the week, she also comes to be supportive of her family.









It is so nice to see a family working together....

  8. I need a storage container like that! My deck is a mess. Did you just buy that? If so, where? I like the faux wicker look.
