On Preparing the Soil...

Just a few of the things I have been thinking about this week:
  • Where will I get lumber to build my raised garden beds?
  • How can I get as many garden-making supplies as possible for free?
  • Where on our property should I make the beds?
  • How am I going to get them watered once my garden is established?
  • Which home school board should I register with this year?
  • What changes do I need to make to my home schooling approach this year?
  • Can I get my registration in to the Home School Conference in time? (Thankfully, the answer to that was yes, I found out tonight!)
I am hoping to get my gardening stuff done by the end of this weekend, for two reasons:

1. Soon, the deadline for planting in our all-too-short growing season will have passed, and I will not be able to harvest anything before fall frost.
2. The mosquitoes the size of dragons have started to awake from their winter slumber, and dragon-fighting whilst building garden beds does not seem to be such a good mix to me. Besides, my shield and spear are still packed in the Sea Can.

I am slowly remembering how to blog without using photos. It's hard, but I think I can do it!

One last thought: today, I read an article that told me that white tea helps you burn fat, similar to green tea (only better!) Yay! I love reasons to drink tea. I can't stand the taste of green tea, but white tea I can handle. Will it make me skinnier? I dunno. But I can say it will, right? :-)

Would you like to come over for a cuppa?
