Random Thoughts

Bella in action

I discovered a website last night that I absolutlely love.  All about permaculture and this post specifically about the art of composting and a European permaculture method called hugelkulturing that we are excited to try.  (Here is a demo of the hugelkulture method.)

 Even if you have been composting for many years I guarentee you will learn something new from this guy. He thoughtfully, and intentionally uses everything around him that might be considered waste. Beautiful pictures, I am truly inspired.

It's almost a new year and we can't think of a better way to spend the first day of 2011 than by having our first work party.  Behind the hand and down the hill we will prepare beds for spring.  The consensus around here is that we will try sheet mulching  two 4' x 20' beds and double digging two 4' x 20' beds.  We shall see who's method works better.  No it is not a competition:). 

Also came across these pics of our chickens when we first got them...sooo cute and fluffy. 
It won't be too long before it's time to get more.  Spring is just around the corner.
Stay tuned for lots of pics and info from the work party.  I hope it doesn't rain...............
