Pie Love: Room under the sky with pie



Apifera hosted out of town artist-jeweler-yurt builder, Heinz Brummel this weekend. It was a work-cation, and he helped Martyn build a new outdoor room, which eventually will be covered with grapevine. The structure will keep pie guests cool in hot weather, or allow guests to sit under buzzing bees while they commune with a donkey. Dirt farmers can rest there and I plan to hold the One Eyed Pug as he naps there.

Each enclosure we build adds another destination on the property. If only I could build things [properly, things that could withstand wind, or an old goat rubbing up on it]. But you all know I am only capable of building monkey houses, but I'm very capable of dreaming, and letting Martyn know my visions. He tweaks them at his will, and builds them in a proper manner to withstand weather and animals.

I made raggedy lattice top pie for the team, and later we of course enjoyed some good Oregon wine, Andrew Rich to be exact. Thanks, Heinz, it would have taken weekends without you.
