In Like a Lamb…
Today, the weather came in like a lamb. Let’s hope it stays and ushers March out the same way.
The weather hasn’t really been cooperative, but it is March 1 and around here, that is suppose to mean that spring is just a few short weeks away. Many people start planting here by April 1.
I’m going to be using half of my friend and neighbor’s garden this year to plant some tomatoes and other veggies. However, I will have to get with them to see exactly when they plan to start planting. Our soil here on the side of the mountain is not good for planting and our friends at the top of the mountain offered part of their huge garden area.
I do know I’m ready to look toward spring and our to-do list that will take us out of the house.
Dale has already split and stacked some wood to cure for next winter, but there is plenty more to be done and that will be first on his to-do list. Once that wood has dried, it will need to be moved undercover this fall so we are better prepared for heating The Little House next winter.
I’ll be guest blogging today on The Tiny House Blog seeking ideas for simple wood sheds. That will be next on Dale’s to-do list and I will probably get to help with that project.
My spring will be centered around planting the veggies in the neighbors garden, planting the flowers around the party deck and reading up on canning. I have to be prepared when all of those wonderful veggies are ready to pick!
Of course, we are still organizing our stuff. Dale’s spent the past couple of weeks organizing his garage next to the house and finally finished it yesterday. While he still has a lot of goals for the garage, such as finishing it and adding built-ins for an ultimate man cave, it looks awesome now.
We still need to organize the basement in The Belle Writer’s Studio and in the metal storage building.
Any ideas for sturdy, environmentally friendly boxes that seal up well? I would rather not buy plastic, but we’re looking for boxes that seal, are affordable, sturdy and the same size so that they will stack well.
We’re also looking for suggestions on dehumidifiers. We need one for the basement and one for The Little House.
