My gate

Well, it's Sunday and it's a nice day. Woke up this morning and made a great breakfast.
Afterwards, I went out to finish my project.





I would say it turned out pretty nice. I took a few pictures of my back yard. The Fireweed are starting.


Then, I replenished and reorganized my arctic entry/pantry.

I still have 1 box of pasta, beans and rice and 1 box of powdered eggs to put on the shelf.



I think I have enough to last awhile. That's it for the day. Stay tuned and take care.

Hey John
That first Flower picture isn't Fireweed. It's nettles. Some people have problems with them...
What's that old saying about fireweed? When it blooms theres only 6 weeks till winter ?????
Nice looking gate. From the amount of beans you've got stashed, I'd say your Navy background is showing through...
Nothing like a big pot of ham and beans when the wx gets nasty.

Take Care

Nice stock up, John! Isn't that a great feeling?!

Good job on the gate 👍 and you sure can't beat the price.

I've gotten lazy. I quit cooking beans from scratch, stocking up on canned beans when on sale. Seeing all your beans makes me want to try cooking a pot of my own. And shoot, I forgot tortillas when I picked up a few groceries this evening.

You take care too.

Thanks Susan, it's good to have stuff on hand so you don't have to run to the store all the time. Don't feel bad, I get lazy myself. I don't cook a lot during the Summer. Make sure you put tortillas on your next list.

If I was a rat, I'd be searching for a way into your cabin. And bringing my whole family along.!!

John said...

LOL, good one bigfoot. Funny thing, yesterday I was sitting in the cabin and heard a noise. Walked out and a squirrel came in through the walk through screen I installed.

John I am blown away with your gates and pantry! I love the design of your gates. I showed the picture to Dave and he loved the design too. Your pantry looks good, nice and full for the coming winter. You have been a busy man! I read in your previous post that you had a lot of rain, please send some this way as we have had none for a long time. Plants in the garden are getting stressed. Take care!

John said...

Thanks Carol, it did turn out nice. The design was a last minute thought. I may have a few more pallet projects coming up.

Hi John :) Your gate looks fabulous! I think it turned out great! As usual, your breakfast makes my mouth water lol...nice stocked pantry! I have to go into the deep freezer soon and try to use up things that have been there too close to a year now; then reorganize. It's fun sometimes because I discover things I forgot I had! The flowers are beautiful!

John said...

Thanks Rain. I'm like you, I have to go throgh my freezer and see what I need to use. I think everyone forgets what is in the freezer.

Evano said...

Gate looks fantastic man!

I just stocked up too.
Made and canned some baked beans. Just got the pressure canner so am still getting used to it. Like it a lot so far.
Looks like you have enough food to last the year out!

Take care.

John said...

Thanks Evano, baked beans, sounds good. I believe in having enough on hand.

I get a rush to see lots of fire wood and have a nice pantry. it's the squirrel in me. :) your breakfast always make me hungry. lol take care! Debi

John said...

Hi Debbie, I'm always grateful when you check in. Yeah, the gate did turn out good, to my surprise, lol. I agree, nothing like a stocked pantry and firewood. I do like my breakfast.

Hi,

The first weed is Hemp nettle or a noxious weed that takes over everything... my dog lot use to be all grass and is now this nasty thing. Need my mower again to keep it in check.

Hoping your summer has been good and your pilot friend is faring better. We are presently out trying to put up a shop so we can clean out the cabin to finish it. Tired of all the rain....
