Holy Week is as good a time as any to stick seeds in the ground--it feels wonderfully hopeful. Today I had some help from a pair of friends. We put in some corn and beans, sunflowers and okra. More will come.You can see our exciting new fence. I think we did a decent job of marking a boundary without putting up a hostile barrier. No pointy things on top, and no solid walls.
We also got a thank you note from our postal carrier today for finally replacing the horrible mailbox we've had. She didn't even make mention of how long it took to do so...just said "Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
I did a good job of bringing in the mail, sorting it, recycling what I could, and not throwing anything on the table. That makes day 2 of my attempt at de-cluttering my living space. Of course, I was also buoyed by some extra and gracious cleaning help from Matt's mom. ;)
