Grow your own food!
In our attempt to live this year as similarly as possible to the way the Waltons live, we have decided to plant a garden. Paul built these planter boxes around the outside of the garden for herbs and the boxes in the middle for strawberries. Next he's going to build more planter boxes on the side of the house for his "stew garden." He wants to be able to grow everything you need to make Irish stew. We'll check with the neighbors and see if they mind if we tie a cow up in the backyard. Unlike the Waltons, we are total procrastinators and have done nothing since the initial building of the boxes. I know it's early, but I also know us and can see it becoming July and my saying "wow, we should really plant something in that garden!"
Maybe I just need to sew some bonnets for me and Aoife--and maybe watch a few reruns for inspiration.
Well, it's late and I'm tired. Goodnight John boy!
