I would love to have a vegetable patch one day and a flower garden too. There is just one thing that has to happen first…Two HUGE fir trees need to come down. They sit at the back of our property, along with a third Douglas fir (but that one can stay), and they really need to be taken down. If we get another heavy wind storm, they will come right through the middle of my kitchen. One time, my Dad explained to me how to measure with your thumb as to how far the tree might fall, and I ended up laughing, because the top of the tree was WAY past my thumb and Dad just said, “Yeah, it’ll hit your house.” But really, who wants to take down a tree? Especially one that is that big and that old? “At least a hundred ” was what the first tree guy said who came to look at them and give us a quote…That was 11 years ago and the quote was $4000.00 for the three big ones in the backyard. I don’t even want to know what it might cost to do just two of them now. I will just keep enjoying my “paper” garden and enjoy berries from my friends and veggies from my neighbours, and pray that the wind blows the other way.
