A late-Winter Wind-Storm knocked over the Greenhouse!

It wasn't actually completed yet so no great set-back.

The wind was so strong that it also took out the cabana on one of the porches.

The wind blew down branches and part of the neighbor's fence.

Then the wind made one Tarp totally disappear.

The wind storm ruined other stuff too.

Apple Tree in Springfield Ohio

Cherry, Apple, and Pear Orchard is being planned

*Update September 18, 2020: There are now three apple trees, a cherry tree, two pear trees, a peach tree and even a lemon-tree that has to be taken in every fall (I can't wait till that thing dies).

Last year the apple tree created one solitary apple. The apple was the size of my thumb. I tried to get vickie to eat it, but she wasn't going for it.

Other types of Springfield Ohio Trees grow all by themselves!

The non-fruit trees in the photos were not present when we moved here in late-2014.

All that was required for these trees to grow, was to NOT mow a section of the lawn for a while.


Many of the non-fruit trees form a natural border between the neighbors to the rear of our property, and will hopefully serve as firewood in a decade... or-so.

Vickie brought the first Apple Tree here. Then my mom brought the first Peach Tree.

So a orchard it will be!

2020 Fruit Tree Orchard Progress Note

There are eight Fruit trees now (with plans for 2 or 3 more fruit trees to be planted in the 2021 Spring).

Orchard Progress

Spring till Fall, an ample supply of Salad and other edibles arrives daily from the Garden.

However, 2015 through to 2017 proved to be way too much labor pulling weeds.

A new approach was proposed in 2018.

The 2018 gardening alternative/experiment, commonly referred to as "No-Till" Gardening, well...

Yes, No-Till Gardening was easier, but proved to be a real mess. Vegetables were hiding everywhere.

2018 was the year for a "no-till" garden, which was not so eventful.

The garden looked like a mess. But for the most part, the yield was kind of surprising.

Truth be told, 2018 brought two early-Spring frosts that killed everything that was planted, twice the garden died, twice I had to re-plant (by then weeds were the last thing on my mind).
