Half done, half to go!  Steve enjoyed working on his first art project at No Limits – he is making a vase to give as a gift.

Quack, quack, quack!  The kind staff at Parksley Livestock Supply allowed us to get an up close look at their baby ducks.

It’s hard to see but Brandon is buffing one of the finished rocks recently polished here at No Limits in our “at home” rock tumbler.  Buff away Brando!

Zel’s height came in handy to hang the AED sign.  Great work!

Maryann and Zel are working hard to keep the grounds closest to the building neat and tidy.  It looks really great!  Check out the finished product of this space in the pic below.

Finished!  B-e-a-utiful!  A big thank you to Brandon, David, and Calvin for assisting with this project too.

We let our spring lettuce crop go to seed and then spread those seeds last month in order to produce a volunteer fall lettuce crop.  Thank you to Laurice Hohlt for donating the original lettuce plants.  They lasted 2 seasons and may even last more!

Brandon was keeping a close eye on the pollinator garden while Maryann was mowing.  He ensured that none of the flowering plants were cut down.

Happy birthday Jason, and many, many more!  Thank you to Jason’s mom, Liz, for donating pizza and cake to make Jason’s party extra special and tasty!

Time to blow out the candles Jason!  What did you wish for?

We’ve been collecting soda can tabs for over a year and recently donated them to the Ronald McDonald House in Richmond!  We are so glad the tabs have gone to a great cause.

Look it’s Mr. Chicken Snack!  Aka, our resident garden spider…

DSCF8052

…we call him Mr. Chicken Snack because if he falls from his web he will become a gourmet garden spider for the No Limits Hens!  Until he falls though, Brandon says “he is helping with bug control in the chicken coop!”

Morning glories are one of the prettier weeds that we pulled up this week.

DSCF8147

Composting weeds makes rich soil for next year!  Work on Brandon, work on!

Steve says “Pulling weeds is hard work but someone has to do it!”  Good work!

No Limits created a brochure that assesses local walking trails for accessibility a few years back.  They were running out of the brochures at the Virginia Welcome Center in Cape Charles so a few of us took a trip to deliver new ones!

DSCF8159

While at the Welcome Center we noticed the Blue Star Memorial that is a tribute to the Armed Forces of the United States and had to stop to get a picture with it because we all support the Armed Forces too.

Brandon helped to chop down some mulberry bushes this week – why not?!

A few members of the Health & Safety team doing what they do best, making sure that the yard is safe.  Great work!

Cherrystone Campground 2019

We enjoyed our 3rd annual trip to “Cherrystone Campground” this week.  It was an absolute blast!  We would first like to say “thank you” to Cherrystone for allowing us to enjoy the park again this year and going out of the way to make sure our day was special and loads of fun!  We enjoyed riding around on the “Clam Tram”, crabbing, fishing, a nice picnic, as well as simply enjoying the company of our close friends.  Check out pictures from our trip below.  🙂DSCF8053DSCF8056DSCF8057DSCF8059DSCF8060DSCF8061DSCF8062DSCF8063DSCF8064DSCF8066DSCF8068DSCF8071DSCF8072DSCF8073DSCF8077DSCF8078DSCF8079DSCF8080DSCF8081DSCF8082DSCF8084DSCF8085DSCF8087DSCF8088DSCF8089DSCF8090DSCF8091DSCF8092DSCF8094DSCF8095DSCF8096DSCF8097DSCF8099DSCF8100DSCF8101DSCF8102DSCF8103DSCF8104DSCF8105DSCF8106DSCF8108DSCF8109DSCF8110DSCF8114DSCF8115DSCF8116DSCF8117DSCF8118DSCF8119DSCF8120DSCF8122DSCF8123DSCF8124DSCF8125DSCF8127DSCF8128DSCF8135DSCF8136DSCF8137DSCF8138DSCF8141Untitled-120190917_12534520190917_131407_HDR20190917_131424_HDR

Dorian damage/destruction!  Luckily this was the only damage No Limits received from the recent storm.  We were sorry to lose our luffa gourd patch though.

Long time member of No Limits, Matt, wanted to try out polishing rocks!  Here are our rocks so far.  David says “They really rock!” 😉
