Has it been a full seven days since our last segment?
How time fly’s when you’re snowed in and it’s 20 degrees outside :snowman: . Not to worry, it’s supposed to be in the upper 50′s by the middle of next week.
As they say around here if you don’t like the weather stick around for a couple of days and it will change…
Okay, lets see… I would like to thank William C and Linda S for their generous donations this week via PayPal. Thank you both your donations will be put toward paying our blog hosting fees that are due next month.
I’ve had several readers in the past tell me that they didn’t know that running a blog costs money… they thought everything on the internet was free… Folks it’s like paying rent – as long as you continue to pay the rent things go smoothly, but skip a payment and you’re closed down and kicked out…
To keep this blog running we have to pay, those hosting fees, we have to pay to register and to keep our site address, I also pay for site security, and I paid a one time fee for a premium theme (blog platform). Some sites also pay for SEO and webmaster services but I do all that myself.
Well, it looks like I got off track at about line one – no doubt the effect of “snow blindness” from going outside this morning to let my dog do her “business” (she is doing great by the way), I don’t think that I’ve ever seen her want to finish and get back in the house so quickly… She is like me – we hate the cold.
Okay let me see… what did I do to prep this week?
- Ordered four Dwarf American Hazelnut trees.
- Ordered one Dwarf Yellow Delicious Apple tree.
- Ordered one Dwarf Red Delicious Apple tree.
- Ordered one Dwarf Alberta Peach tree.
- Ordered one Dwarf Kieffer Pear tree.
- Ordered one Dwarf North Star Cherry tree.
Working out plans for another raised bed garden using old tires – I’ve done this in the past with great results. If you’re interested in this here are a couple of articles that you will find helpful – “A new use for old tires:
A garden using tires” “Making & Selling Tire Gardens“. And a book on how to do it “Tire recycling is fun“. I have the book and it’s full of interesting projects using old tires not just for gardening but other projects as well.
Well folks that’s it for me this week – now, I’m just waiting for the sun to shine and melt this snow off… :sun:
What about YOU? What did you do to prep this week? Let us know in the comments below. Just do it already!
