Keeping Busy, Waiting to Build

Building
4

The snow has taken forever to melt.  We can’t start digging as soon as I had hoped.  That’s ok though.  I have a lot of other things I can do to keep busy.  I’ll be building some small things like a rainwater system.  I am planting tons of seeds and doing other projects with the kids.  And, of course, getting the garden ready for planting.

I started by clearing the path to the new house site…

…and then started clearing for the house.

The kids and I tested some seeds for viability…

…and then planted a bunch of other seeds.

I prepared a bunch of garden beds…

…hauled a bunch of manure…

…put up some trellises…

…and built a bean/squash tunnel.

 

I made garden markers…

…And started my hugelabyrinth.

There are a million other projects I have going on right now, too much to mention.  I guess it’s not so bad we can’t start building yet.  When would I get all this work done?
