Oh Yeah, the Blog part 2

Gentle readers,
Maintaining this blog during the process of building our home was a joyous exercise that I rushed home every night to complete. Turns out living here is more fun than maintaining a blog about living here. Nevertheless, I am not throwing in the towel, and will endeavor to visit this electronic diary more frequently. Tonight, I took pictures of a harvest of 5 different varieties of heirloom tomatoes, haricots verts, an assortment of herbs, and a lovely array of peppers. Since our last posting, the seedlings have matured and nourished us for some time now, and continue to provide a seemingly endless stream of delicious, gorgeous fruits and vegetables. Hopefully, this will help reduce our health care costs in the long term.

Sadly, we mourn the loss of Mary Travers today. One of the first things Joanna and I did together was to take in a Peter, Paul and Mary show in 1995. I've had a weakness for their brand of folk music for a long time, and to this day, one of our favorite pasttimes is enjoying a sprinkling of their sweet harmonies mixed in with the raunchy rock and roll that populates most of our music library.

Updated pictures will follow soon.
