Green Acres Weekend Update

Lots going on this week, and the next few.  We're trying to get the house ready to receive the rest of our furniture, which is currently at Other House.  Outdoor projects galore.  Wrapping up our Classical Conversations year.  But a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Byron installed a fence to keep out predators - er - four wheelers.

Three fruit trees down, twenty-three to go!  Yes, I said twenty-three!

I'm trying to start plants from seeds this year.  Click here to see how to make these very cheap starter pots! I'm using these for tomatoes, since they won't be planted right away and will (hopefully) get BIG.

I'm also trying one of these inflatable peat moss doo-hickies.

This is me being organized - using those labels that have been floating around instead of a random sheet of paper that will get lost in one of my piles.  I was very proud of myself.

We took time to smell the, um, orchids.  Thanks, Dawn, for the guest pass to the botanical gardens.

Hi.  I'm Charlie.  My name starts with "C" and I'm four.  I like to cooperate for pictures.  Sometimes. 


Have a great week!

  1. Pretty orchid! I have all our seeds sitting on the counter but we haven't started them yet.

    We tried to plant fruit trees a couple of years ago and moles ate them! I hope you have better luck. At least we have the existing apple trees.
