My husband and I purchased 12 acres on a small lake in Michigan in the fall of 2001. We’re working on incorporating some trails and "park areas" into the natural beauty of the wooded property. Up until then we had only done "urban" gardening and now we find ourselves up to our armpits in a HUGH project.




It’s hard to believe we’ve been working at it for 5 years already. We’ve been slowly adding a view of the lake, the cottage is up and we’re working on the interior. The first of several planned flower beds is in and we have a path to the dock. We’ve added blueberry, raspberry and blackberry bushes and apple trees (one of which was chewed down by a beaver), and started grooming an area for a future vegetable garden. Just a tiny project for our retirement - HA! What were we thinking! Lots of fun AND lots of work!
