My goodness, we have more nice weather heading in our direction this coming weekend, and you know what that means? It means Bev and I will be out shoveling topsoil into our newly-constructed garden areas. After the dirt is in place we will be ready to plant once the danger of frost is gone. Actually we will be doing some planting this weekend too. We have 120 onions that can go in the ground and we’ll put them under our makeshift greenhouse and get them started.
The chicken coop will be ready in a few weeks. We have to borrow someone’s saw to cut some plywood for the walls, but once that is done it will be a matter of days before we finish that, and then we can go out and buy our chicks for the summer….and then fresh eggs! Hooray!
Let’s see, what else in our simple life? We are going to can vegetables this year for the first time, and we are looking at making a rocket stove outside as well as digging a root cellar. We have no idea if those ideas will work but we like trying new things so we’ll give it a go.
We are doing this all on a residential building lot and really in half of our backyard. Can you imagine what we could accomplish if we had one acre? LOL In three years we will find out when we move to the country.
So that’s what is happening in our little simple corner of the world.
