Going Green and Sustainability

There's a lot to be discussed within the title of today's post. With the help of my father-in-law, Bob finally got the greenhouse finished. What's left are the touches I'll add to the inside. I'll have pics to show tomorrow.

Along with my desire to grow as much of our own food as possible, I'm gradually getting Bob into the 'stock up' and 'animal keeping' frame of mind. While we were at Lowes last weekend I found this really cool book: 'Building Projects for Backyard Farmers and Home Gardeners'  21 fabulous ideas. I doubt I'll use them all, but they do have my wheels turning. Even though fall is just around the corner, now is the time to be thinking ahead to next spring.

And if you're in the mood to add a water feature for enjoyment, check this book out: Outdoor Water Features

I had intended this post to be a bit more in depth but Mother Nature has other plans. Storms are brewing which means I'm pushing to touch base with everyone before I must unplug the modem.

Safe Blessings!
