You will find me being very sporadic on the blog over the next while. I have some reviews written up already and some random posts I’ll be getting done. Too many other things are keeping me on the go. I thought I would talk with you about what’s keeping me busy.
Homeschool co-op has started and I’m teaching a phys ed class and a logic/debate class. We are using The Fallacy Detective. I won it years ago in some contest I can’t even remember anymore. 🙂 Want to know more about the book just click on the picture. 🙂
Also it is spring time in Ontario. THAT very fact has my bones itching to be outdoors. To that end I’ve been a bit …busy. 🙂 I’ve been slowed up the last two days since I took a tumble and bunged up my lower left leg BUT slowed is not stopped! 🙂
White Barrel Gardens
First I started with what I am calling my white barrel gardens. Hubby works at a feed mill and they’ve been giving away these animal food quality barrels. Anyways, he’s brought me home six barrels I think. I’ve cut all but one in half, the last I’m hoping to turn into a rain barrel.
Two of them I’m using as starter gardens. I’ve planted lettuce in one and peas in the other. I used branches from the hedge that I’m planning to cut down as supports for the plastic. There is a need to water them soon and check for growth!
Barn Board Gardens
My second project involves the movement of 4 1/2 gardens. The hope is that I don’t have to rebuild all four, but so far I’m having to rebuild two of them. One is finished (my job), the lad is going to build the other. He’s getting paid so he’s eager to earn his keep! 🙂 I built the one so he has a template to work from.
I have to admit that it is a lot of work moving the beds from being vertical to the rabbitry to being in line, BUT it give me more useable room between the gardens and the rabbitry, which means…. drum roll.. LESS tripping and falling for yours truly! More room means it will be easier to do my twice yearly top to bottom clean out. Staying healthy makes that job easier.
I anticipate it will take another three weeks to get it all done. In the midst of that I need to do some reviews… Cross Wired Science is coming. Write a blog post or three. Finish our taxes! Find time for family and fun. Life does go on…but it means that some things (like blogging everything I think about) will fall to the wayside for a while.
