Burger Night

Burger Night

We had burgers last weekend at our neighbours house! Morgyn made smash burgers on the cast iron grill and home made buns. They turned out awesome 🙂 We had a few liquor shots afterwards and watched the movie Everest. It was great fun!
A Visit From Family Back East

A Visit From Family Back East

My Aunt and Uncle came down for our wedding last month and they stayed with us for a few days! In those few days we ate great and Uncle Steven helped Morgyn dig up our septic field a bit. We went out for breakfast at a local restaurant and I ordered hot cakes that were the size of the plate! Morgyn made us the most awesome fried chicken we have ate yet and even my Uncle who has been to culinary arts learned a cool tip on how to make her fried chicken! Sorry all it’s top secret! It was sure nice to have my family included on our special weekend 🙂 We are looking forward to our next get together with them! Morgyn’s Rye and Walnut Bread! What a hit!   Uncle Steven and Morgyn digging up the septic field! Me, my Auntie Nicole and Uncle Steven Morgyn’s Fried Chicken, Fries and home made Coleslaw!

We Got Married!

We Got Married!

It was a surreal June 25th weekend. Morgyn and I finally tied the knot! We had a small close knit family wedding at Morgyn’s Moms place. My Auntie and Uncle came down from the East Coast and Morgyn’s daughter and friend were there as well. We had a really nice ceremony followed by a delicious dinner! My Aunt and Uncle brought down a bunch of whole lobsters with them and cooked them to tenderness. We enjoyed the seafood with garlic butter and Morgyn’s Mom made a really tasty red seafood sauce to go with it as well! We had a super good prime rib later that night, that my Uncle seared and prepared before the wedding as Morgyn and I were getting ready. Earlier that day we had a great lunch with Morgyn’s sisters family along with my Aunt and Uncle in Vancouver at a restaurant named Kirin. We enjoyed Dim Sum and wow was it ever good! We especially enjoyed the shrimp dumplings and the Peking Duck. It is so nice to be officially married to Morgyn now as she is my soul mate and best friend and I look forward to every day ahead of us! Thanks to all who made our day as special as it was!

Yard Work on the Hottest Day June 5th 2016

Yard Work on the Hottest Day June 5th 2016

So it has been super hot this weekend. It is even sunnier on the Coast with a high of 33C in the Fraser Valley! We were going to visit the Coast but not when it is this hot out! Instead we decided to stay at home and do some yard work. We went to a local feed shop in town and got some horse manure that had finished so we can use it right away in our garden! We took out a few shovels when we got home and put the trailer full of dirt on to the parts where our vegetable garden will be! It is hard work but I sure felt like a farmer today 🙂 It was a nice spot where we got the manure from. They told us to come back when we needed more. We think we will be doing a few more trailer loads so we can create a nice garden spot. Tao Dog and our other dogs love it out here! We are going to build a fence so that they don’t wander off into our neighbours yards as they have been. People seem to like our dogs though and someone gave Humble Dog a big rack of fresh rib bones from some sort of game! She came home trotting so proudly holding her rack of ribs so high for every one of our dogs to see. We took off the bones so they all could share and wow they were quiet for quite some time! 🙂 We have really nice neighbours here and everyone seems to have a dog or 2....
Flowers June 2016

Flowers June 2016

We’ve been super busy in the yard! Morgyn has been taking measurements of our roof for our big project this Summer and we’ve been doing yard work like crazy! There are these tall wild dandelion type flowers in the yard that are clearly weeds and holy cow when you pull them out of the ground the roots on them look like carrot roots! I planted some of our flowers in the Cedar planter boxes Morgyn built me and we watered them in today. Here are a few photos of the flowers in the Cedar boxes! Marigolds Marigolds about to bloom! Royal Carpet Alyssum Rose seedling from seed! Nigella that reseeded in it’s own container! 🙂 Petunia Yellow and Orange Nasturtiums Nigella and the view on our street! Morgyn measuring the roof! Money tree seeds! Huechera that reseeded in the winter! 🙂 Our flowers in the Cedar boxes Morgyn built for me! Coleus! Canturberry Bells! They came back from last year. I thought they were going to be poppies but nope! What a pleasant surprise! Calendula – In the Marigold family! Bachelors Buttons! They reseeded themselves too. 🙂 These are the flowers we have potted up so far! Stay tuned for more garden posts!...
Making Cherry Wine

Making Cherry Wine

It has been hot here in Vancouver BC for the last week or two that is for sure! Even though Summer hasn’t officially arrived it has on our thermostats! According to the thermostat on our chicken coop it has reached 30C and above and holy smokes is it nice to have A/C in our living room! Being outside mind you is like living in some tropical place that is for sure! We have to go outside to water our peppers and flowers, and now we have things in our pea bed as well! We have a few squash and pumpkins growing in it, a few Cesar beans, and some different varieties of peas such as purple cow peas and sweet shelling peas. Our plants over all are doing quite well, had a bit of aphids on our Borage but I sprayed it and then cut off the damaged ends. Morgyn installed a hose for me to water my plants out in front and she has a nice new wand for her hose as well for the peppers. We also bought some tomato plants so we can do some tomato sauce again this fall. Everyone’s plants are producing flowers and fruit these days, our friends and family tell and show photos of their pretty flowers and awesome vegetables they are growing. It is really amazing this year the things people have in their gardens! Our friends in town have a few fruit trees and asked us if we’d like to come and pick some cherries! We of course thought of all the things we could do with them then an...
Honey Harvest May 2016

Honey Harvest May 2016

Honey harvest in May 2016 was both saddening and celebratory. We inspected the hive first to see if any activity was going on, but just as Morgyn thought the bees died over the winter as there was a draft that was in the boxes causing the bees to not make it. There was still lots of honey and we managed to save quite a bit of it. It was very sad to see our bees not make it but it happens sometimes. We hope to have more bees at our new...
