Smoking is an addiction

“Well I’ve started smoking”. Starting on August 9th Jon Built a homemade smoker for his fire pit and smoked his first batch of ribs for our BBQ we held. We hold a BBQ every August and we provide the meat. We cook our usual ribs and then Jon always has to try something new, this year it was smoked ribs. This year we had about thirty people and bought $130.00 worth of ribs. Needless to say we had plenty of meat and everything turned out great, this will defiantly be a returning feature. I guess if you’re going to be a smoker this is the kind to be.

Garden has turned out great!

Well our garden is flourishing with Green Zucchini, Yellow Zucchini, Sweet Chilies, Banana Peppers, Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Lettuce, Cabbage, and Tomato plants almost a foot taller than me (which isn’t very hard). All our tomatoes haven’t ripened yet but when they do we will have more than we will know what to do with. We also have Strawberries, Peas, Leaks, Basil, Sage, Rosemary, and Mint. Jon recently added a water feature in the corner of the garden with a waterfall to help relax you while sitting near the campfire pit located in the middle of the garden. Jon enjoys it and calls it his therapy. He loves being in the garden and witnessing the vegetables of his labor. Last year that was all weeds.
