The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Stopped at Home Depot today, but they had no mushroom kits. :(
Out of curiosity about the price & other info, I trying finding them at Home Depot stores in Boise, Vancouver, Portland, and Troutdale, but found none.
Tried Amazon and found them for $16.61
Also found Morel kits at Amazon, plus other kinds of mushrooms. I many order some one of these days.
Joan, most people don't like change. You're not one of them! I like your outlook on the challenge(s). Being that my family farm is also in its 7th generation, I can appreciate your pride.
Daniel, your mushrooms look great! I found a huge clump of mushrooms on a stump (at the golf course, of all places). I picked it, thinking it might be a "hen in the woods" variety. But, not being sure, I googled it. Sure enough, it wasn't. Good thing I didn't try eating it! Don't know what it is.
When I had my heat surgery several years ago, I planned to move to Laura's. I spent three days in my garden crying. I wasn't ready then. I am ready now. The fall on April 9 took a lot of cockiness out of me and I feel vulnerable now.
A new housing bubble started some months ago and now is the time to sell my home and get a good price for it. I can't do the upkeep needed and can't afford to hire the work done. Cary does all he can with his limitations.
I feel quite content making this move. We started the foundation work for the new greenhouse this week. With the very high cost of food at the grocery story, the family joins in the desire to produce more of our fruits and vegetables. No one wants to raise meat to eat, for which I am grateful. Michelle is getting some chickens for the eggs. We plan some permaculture designs for the soils and some water capturing plans. This 17 acres has no surface water and the aquifer feeds from the many lakes around here left over from the Ice Age and Missoula Floods.
My home in Spokane exists as part of the urban forest of deciduous trees. My new home lies in the depths of an ancient forest of conifers. This will give very different soils and water conditions, presenting me with new challenges.
I feel that the best legacy I can give my grat-grandchildren is showing them how to raise their foods and becoming more self-sufficient. My 16-year-old great-grandson will be taking classes on solar heating through his high school. Our new greenhouse will be largelty solar heated.
The line of generations in the Generaton Garden here at Laura's goes from my
great-grandmother>Grandmothers>Mother>Me>Laura> granddaughters>great-grandchildren. That is seven generations.
Joan, best of luck with your move!
Randy, Joan moving surprised me also, but with such good family support, is probably for the best.
Good plans, Joan, and it seems to me that you picked the right time for a move. I'm glad you have got such a wonderful family to take care of you and that you have many things to share with the young ones. I hope you won't miss your dancing house!
Patricia, I agree.
Sorry, my comment includes the last paragraph directed to Larry. I tried reposting the message as I wanted it and the comment section would not accept it. So! Ignore the last paragraph.
However, I do have a link to the greenhouse:
Geodesic Growing Dome Greenhouse
Spud, yes, I am bringing a lot of stuff from my Spokane garden to this one. Laura created a "Generation Garden" that includes plants from both of my grandmothers' gardens. Six generations, including my grandmothers' down through my great-grandchildren, has representation in it.
