I've been trying canning. Tonight I attempted dilly beans. Who knows if they will come out ok. I used beans and dill from the garden.

Today we went to Treworgy Orchard and had fun doing the corn maze. I love going every year. We will have to go back and pick a pumpkin.

Isn't my niece adorable?

This weekend we visited the Desert of Maine. Yes we have a desert here and it naturally occurred. It may have been though because of potato farming and sheep but still cool to see.

I made breakfast this morning. I found scrapple at my local grocery store so I had to try it. I'm not sure if I cooked it how it's normally prepared but it was good. Even my boyfriend ate it. I can cross it off my life list. I had heard about it years ago and wanted to try it.

Today we went to Boothbay Harbor for a lobster/clam bake that my boyfriend's work was having. We went on a ferry and ate lobster at Cabbage island.

I walked down on the rocks despite wearing a skirt.

Fort Kent, ME

Today my boyfriend and I went on a long road trip north to the beginning of Route 1 in Fort Kent, ME. We got off 95 at Houlton and followed Route 1. It was a fun trip to check out that part of Maine. 

Pluto is still at the Houlton visitor center as part of the Maine Solar System Model. 

Fort Kent Blockhouse. 

I had some poutine at Rock's diner.

Today I ran errands and my boyfriend surprised me with a gas powered weed wacker. I got to clear a bunch of weeds around the yard. The plan is to make that into lawn instead of being overun with weeds. So excited about it. 

In the back corner of my property. There is random hump of dirt that needs to get cleared. I want to see what's on the ground before mowing. I ran out of gas or else I would have kept going. 
I was excited to find wild raspberries growing. 
My boyfriend told me I'm adorable when I came inside covered in grass. Always wear safety glasses. ;)

I made zucchini brownies tonight to use the large zucchini I picked from the garden. They came out very moist. The zucchini replaces eggs in the recipe I used. 

I was excited today to get some planting done in the front yard. 
I have hostas, hydrangeas, blue star juniper, azelas, holly, and boxwood planted in front. Let's hope it grows well. My yard was bare for over a year so it's nice to see it all done.
