Dave has an ingenious way of curing his sweet potatoes.... he puts them in his bathroom with a crock pot full of water to give them the right temperature and humidity to sweeten. The only problem is getting in and our of the shower....
Kelly, Leslie, Meg, Mickey and Anna .... and a shrinking pile of mulch
Dick has split up an impressive pile of firewood!
Nancy, Dick, Cheryl, Anne, Mike, Richard, Rosemarie at our Sunday evening potluck
Richard, Mikey and Dick dig the holes for posts that will support a cool fence to hide this electrical system. Our electricity is shared (we each pay based on house size), which saves us almost $7,000 per year - and we don't have to have meters on individual homes (but we do have these larger systems that we try to hide because they are pretty ugly!)
Our woods provide some delicious wild mushrooms. The most common is the chanterelle and it was a great year for those! But on Cathy's birthday, she found a lion's mane mushroom - our favorite and quite rare. And quite huge! Kate is checking it out - many people have never seen one.
A view of the common house - lovely fall day
Sunset at Bella vista over the weekend.
