This is a hard post for me
I believe strongly in the power of hard work, so I push myself, usually to the limit. But it’s no longer just about me. I can work myself to the bone, push my body farther than I should and I’m usually ok with that. I mean yes, it does wear me thin. Yes, it does get exhausting and I do have break downs. I’m not super human or anything. But the problem comes when the list of things to do is longer than I can handle at a comfortable pace, so I push.
I think with all the brush we’ve been clearing, and all the yard clippings, the best thing to do is build a hugelkultur mound. I’ve never built one, never mind grown in one, so this will be interesting.
I don’t have much going inside. Just a few cucurbit (squash, cucumber, pumpkin) seedlings that I started just in case my other ones bit the dust. I do however, have quite a few random odds and ends leftover outside on the greenhouse shelves. I’m contemplating selling them for cheap, if anyone local is interested.
ITS BEEN CRAZY BUSY!
Things around the "homestead" have been so very busy. I've been getting the garden going, and trying to build our food storage a little more. I've been learning to make wine and mead, and keeping Gummy Bear busy with walks upon walks. So, in lieu of a garden update (I know I missed April, and now have nearly missed May) I figured I would just give you a ton of lovely photos to look at. I promise a proper update for June, as well as some posts on wine/mead making. Enjoy for now!
