Good morning everyone! We have had some beautiful sunrises this week. The weather has been fairly nice. Warm enough and dry enough that I have been able to do some outside work.
Our old raised beds are coming apart. I decided since they needed to be deeper anyway I would combine some of them. I moved the dirt out of one and added it to another. I also added another row of timbers to make it deeper.
It looks lots better. I need a little more dirt to get it the depth I want it to be. I want to do some amending to the soil as soon as our local greenhouse opens.
Another thing I did this week was make this little box. I plan on using it to grow radishes and of course other things but radishes will be planted in it hopefully next week.
The seed template Dave and I made fits perfectly in it. I got the idea for this from Hollis and Nancy’s homestead channel on YouTube.
I have been receiving things this week that I ordered for my seed starting. Seeds of course,
heat mats and solar lights. I have never used heat mats before but from all I can read they really help with germination. The solar lights are for decoration. I plan on putting them in the garden somewhere just “for pretty”.
Also another new thing. I am hoping to use weed cover in the garden this year. Less work hopefully. I got these staples to hold the fabric down. We have high wind here so I hope this will work.
This week, Chef Daniel made us another delicious meal using his Raddish kit.
This is Sam and his robotic arm that he made with his Tinker crate. He did such a good job!
It’s been a HARD week as this makes a year since my sweet girl went to heaven. Your passing, for us, has been a loss that words cannot express but, for you, I know it has been a gain beyond anything we can ever imagine. So I try to not live in our loss but to focus on your gain. We love you!
