What’s Happening During the Coronavirus Outbreak…

This outbreak is creating challenges with the stay-at-home order, etc. However, it does provide a quiet time for attention to the yard and gardening is becoming important. It’s great if you have a planting calendar. My peas went out slightly late this year; so they aren’t as mature as they would have been otherwise; but they are doing OK. I plan to wait it out for them. Lettuce is another early crop. The first seeding is probably ready to pick, unless you had to wait because of rain (like I did). I plan to start a second round of seeds this weekend. Being able to grow your food at home is an excellent way to save money during this time – especially if you already had seeds you were planning on planting anyways.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” – Luke 24: 1-7

Harvesting Compost

I recently saw “The Biggest Little Farm“. It is about a young couple who spent eight years transforming a depleted farm with livestock manure. I greatly enjoyed it; some of their ideas are helpful ones. For example, they started with livestock manure to create new soil since the farm they acquired was in very poor condition when they purchased it. It looks very dry in the movie. Manure can provide a plethora of nutrients for a garden & I feel that it has really helped mine. Actually, I harvested some yesterday, only from my a separate bucket I have for food scraps & garden waste. I didn’t go through the whole bucket yesterday because I need to figure out more space to store it before I use it.

On another note, I recently became an affiliate for Christianbook.com.
