Homesteading

Well, sort of! This weekend I moved the woodpile from one side of the house to the other, determined to widen the side enough to push a wheel barrow along it. I started without a wheel barrow, carrying armloads. Next morning, I discovered I have access to a wheelbarrow! It made the job a lot easier, let me tell you.

I still had to do a lot of double-work, to unbury the pallets underneath and move them to the other side and stack. I’m proud of my pile, but figure I’ll have to reinforce with rebar pounded in at the ends.

I had imagined a neat wooden hutch, maybe even thatched. That might come along in the future. For now, tarp.

And my reward? Early morning sky over the sea, out my sunroom window.

I’m reading Paradise Lot and a lot of websites on taking hard-packed soil and turning it into a permaculture garden (food forest would be beyond my space!). I need to get “before” and “after” photos of the process. Some of you may remember the debris pile I showed after tearing down a dilapidated shed in back. That went into a 20′ dumpster, but now we have all that was pulled out from under the house heaped back there. More wheel barrow trips.
