The Scout Report

While construction on the new shop is progressing Sage and I are keeping an eye on things.  I, for one, couldn’t be more excited…

The siding is going on and the crew might just finish up this week or early next week…


While the shop is progressing, Mr. Fifty Shades decided that he needed to start a new project.  Then, he decided that the project needed a project.  The first project is building a deck underneath the little balcony on the west side of the house.

Sawdust is flying!

The deck will be enclosed on three sides and will hold different types of yard equipment.

But, this just didn’t seem like enough of a project.  So, Mr. Fifty Shades decided to expand the deck out about twelve feet…

In addition to the construction work, the last couple weeks have been busy in the kitchen trying to use up some of our garden produce…

Cream of Fresh Tomato Soup

Greek Cucumber Salad

Zucchini Muffins


Chocolate Blackout Cake

Woops – the Blackout Cake did not contain any vegetables whatsoever.  It was made to celebrate someone’s birthday and it was amazing.  Mr. Fifty Shades cannot eat a whole slice because it’s so rich.  Mrs. Fifty Shades thinks that is crazy talk.

Until next time,

Fifty Shades of Green Acres Team

  1. Wow, that is quite an add-on deckage, and wow, in re the perfect fresh produce! The two of you are thriving, but you know that, and so…. is Sage. 🙂

    • Mostly I listen to digital books. I also like to listen to NPR’s podcast of old Car Talk shows and current Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me. When I listen to music it is mostly Saturday afternoon shows from NPR: a local bluegrass production called Studio One, E-Town and Mountain Stage.
