Building moveable cold frames/row covers

This has been kind of a fun project we’ve tackled this year. Last year was the first year we had an actual vegetable garden. Tom didn’t really bother with the landscaping until I moved here (which was officially in about 2017, I think).

Lupin project – update

Nearly three weeks ago I posted some musings on my Lupin-project, where I try to spread Lupins of various wild harvested types – voluntarily – in certain managed patches and plots on the land here.

At the end of 2018 this is how things looked: As you can see, at $273 a monthContinue reading “2019 wrap up + 2020 goals”

2 months after Day 1: Barista-Fi/RE’d .

I updated the title to this article a couple of days after posting it. On April 29 I basically Barista Fi/Re’d. Here are some observations about that! Before I dig in, I also wanted to share an older Jason Fieber article, I meant to add that in a while ago and it is appropriate here;Continue reading “2 months after Day 1: Barista-Fi/RE’d .”
