Ashlyn passed off one of her achievements in tumbling. She was able to do a back bend and bring herself back up to a standing position on her own power! Molly asked her how she was finally able to do it after working on it so long. She said, "I imagined that Jan Jan was standing there when I stood up".
John hurt his knee somehow working here on the farm, so he decided to rest it today by building the framework on the vegetable beds for the protective mesh covering. I weeded one section of the Beach Cherries and then got recruited to help him with this construction project. We measured the arches to find the approximate center and then the halfway points on each side. He used a hand drill with a drill bit to drill holes in the scrap lumber we used for the framework. Then it was held in place with old roofing screws.
