Building Drawings

This describes our last month pretty acurately (except you can't see the coffee cups)

more mushrooms

This was the most ridiculously delicious pizza ever, fresh morels (second batch), watercress from the stream 2 minutes away, ricotta, and olive oil from Penny's family orchard in Greece

mushroom madness

well, this is a little late, these were picked 2 weekends ago, and the shitakes are from Jan and Jim's shitake log in their woods
I discovered a secret to finding morels, look for an idyllic spot in the country, with dappled sun and maybe a wild flower or two, head for it and look down. This worked almost everytime, they were either in the sweet spot or heading to it.

We now have our 2 conservation authority permits, our stamped truss drawings and foundation contractors lined up, we can now, finally, apply for a building and demo permit!!!!!!

soon there'll be photos of no rooms then new rooms instead of mushrooms

Chris went fiddlehead pickin at our friend Jer's house and we went and collected some wild leek leaves too (we left the bulbs in the ground).
Amongst the many things we made with the fiddle head stash was this dumpling dinner
Tofu, Acorn squash, Leek and Fiddlehead dumplings.

We now have approval from the Niagara Escarpment Committee and the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation authority to build, we just have to anchor the building permit......
