Happy Birthday Sandie! Here is a link to the TW Community group. I tried to forward to you but you may have your settings set to not allow TW-friends to forward discussions. Read what Theresa V shares on 5/19.

Hi Sandie ~
I can be reached at 253-334-2157.

My place is at 5581 Second Avenue in Ferndale. I have a lot of things going on this weekend, but at some point I'd love to have you come over and check it out. that is what I thought when I bought this property - a jewel in the rough. I have done a lot of work to the grounds and house since moving there 5 years ago. It does take a lot fo upkeep. My home is a 1911 Craftsman, and needed a lot of work but the previous owners added a wing and doubled the size of the house. We completely redid the upstairs, but they did the wiring, plumbing, and new windows. So it is pretty efficient. I may make this into Fern Hollow Bed & Breakfast in the future, that was a goal when I bought it. Working full time doesn't allow a lot of time to get this done. But for the price, it was a much better property than anything I could find in Bellingham.
so - lets get together sometime in the future.

Hi Sandie ~
Your place sounds like my little urban farm in Ferndale, with 5 avarieties apple trees, 1 producing cherry, 7 blueberry bushes (I call them boulder berreis, these are so lush), the best everbearing rasberries (I think about 10 canes now) 2 hazelnuts, 2 Italian plums, and 1 old pear tree that is a heavy producer but the quality is not the best. Have any ideas about improving fruit quality? Of course I won't spray. Last year composed about 2" material around the base of the pear tree, and put in borage, chives, snowberries, and rasberreis in the understory.
So I may not have a lot of time to help, but ask Larry Williams, he is a landscaper and very good at pruning trees, and will work in exchange for fruit or other barters you may have. Do you have chickens?

Thank you Sandie. You are most fortunate to be set up with what sounds like an abundance of food provided by nature's best. I hope to learn more about seed saving and gardening in general. Currently, I am quite busy organizing this doc film festival, but given the time, I would love to help with pruning and yard work. Hope to meet you in the near future!
