roof, break, and life…

Since we constructed the run for the chickens that could potentially withstand an earthquake, which we do not have many of here, we re-roofed our house ourselves, planted the raised beds, crushed one foot, learned to walk with crutches, are in the beginning of a 2-week long trip to Australia (on crutches), and are getting caught up on some much needed rest!

We planted 4 blackberry bushes a few months ago that were about 6-8″ tall.  The largest of the four had one bloom on it, which, with a huge smile on my face is a nice little green blackberry!!!  Most of the fruit trees we planted 3 years ago have fruit on them.

The only challenge we continually face are aphids and these little tiny white mites…  anyone have any organic suggestions?
