Fresh Fruit & Veggies


Having taught and worked in the Bush for many years, my dad knows what's important. So far this year my dad has sent four shipments of produce, and as anyone who has spent any time in the Bush knows, produce is worth its weight in gold. Without my dad the only produce that we see is a little too soft, or a little oddly colored.

Below is a picture of just some of what he has sent.

If you have been following the blog for awhile, you may remember the blog post about his shipments from last year. He used to send huge boxes of stuff, and inevitably some of it got smashed. This year I think he has improved his technique by sending smaller boxes. Below you'll see a box that barely survived the Bush shipping process, and it should be noted that all the goodies inside survived.

This has been an ongoing project for my dad and we are extremely grateful.

Car Wash Stebbins Style

My Honda needed cleaning, and these girls needed something to do. They did an excellent job, very thorough. Even cleaned the tread on the tires.

Return of the Moose

The moose struck again, and this time I have a picture of the vandal. Luckily the tryst with my truck seems to be over and he left it alone. He did, however, attack a sign in my parent's yard. Not sure what the deal is with this guy...lovesick?

Warmer Times

It is starting to get a little colder here in Stebbins. No snow yet, but I think there will be some in the next few weeks as last year at this time we had lots of snow. Right now it's just raining a lot, so until the snow comes we probably won't be doing much outside.

Here are some pictures from warmer times.

We put the net out the first week that we were back in Stebbins and caught a lot of fish...a LOT of fish.

With a little help we were able to fillet them all.

We froze some, and then later vacuum-sealed them later.

The rest we smoked...yum!
