I’d like to have my pond landscaped, a turkey coop built, a greenhouse up, and my basement finished this year. Fortunately, my wife is more practical than I am.
We were discussing over dinner what we could “realistically” expect to accomplish this year. The list was distilled to:
finish the chicken run
roof the chicken coop
build a cold frame
It doesn’t seem like a very ambitious list, but my wife is right; based on past experience, we’ll be lucky if we get those few projects done – in between sprouting, planting, weeding, harvesting, canning, freezing, birthing, collecting, maintaining, repairing, etc. etc.
… this is why I think we need a “community.”
