Ep 85 – Murphy’s Law

Murphy’s Law – As always whatever can go wrong during the build process goes wrong. That’s okay though, we just keep on trucking!
Weather spoiled some of our plans and a mild injury slowed us down, but we’ll be at it again hopefully this week!

Ep 72 – Adding Plants to the Memorial Garden. Happy Birthday, Mom.

More work on the inexpensive memorial garden. It would have been my mom’s 75th birthday this year. We lost her19 years ago, and have still always celebrated her birthday. This year, I wanted to be sure to get the plants into the ground because she loved her summer flowers.

Episode 71 – $0 Budget Memorial Garden Progress

I am working on a memorial garden for my lost people, and I’m trying to spend as little as I can to do it, because I’m strapped for cash at the moment.

Ali is working hard on the garden, and Mike continues his war with One Eye while assisting me.
Lots of raking and rocks, plus summer flowers are flourishing in the mountains!

Greenhouse Fail – Episode 69

We were planning on converting an unused shed into a greenhouse, but we were unable to get the shed relocated, and I’m kind of done with this mess.
I think I’m throwing in the towel on getting this garden up and running this year

Memorial Garden on a $0 Budget – Protecting the Septic Cleanout

I have had a rough pain week, but I’m trying to push forward on at least one project on the property whilst we remain in this perpetual holding pattern on the house build. I’m trying to figure out the best way to do drainage near the septic cleanout, so that it doesn’t fill with dirt. I am using a bunch of rocks from a pile that has been on the property for the past year or two, but I don’t think it’s going to be enough.
Also an update on the veggie garden which isn’t looking so hot. I really need to get my plants into some containers!
Special thanks this week to my amazing friends who lent me their voices! I let them decide how they’d like to be credited. hee hee

Planning a Garden, Poopies New Toys, & Dowsing for a Well

Bob the Builder made a place for an elevated garden, so Ali is planning out a flower garden/memorial garden.
The poopy dogs got some new toys made by petstages – you can get a similar toy here https://amzn.to/2Re3tLu
the original I purchased from walmart – https://www.walmart.com/ip/Petstages-Firehose-Friends-Zebra/152706452
Mike’s mom is about to have a well drilled, and hired a dowser to come look for water. Ali got a chance to try it out.

Garden – Ep 4 – Plant Drainage, Luffa Seeds, Excavation Progress, & More Trail Cameras!

My plants look like garbage. I’ve figured out one thing I was doing wrong, and I’m trying to correct my errors.
I’m growing some luffa seeds which I purchased on Etsy. I’ll drop a link to those once I determine whether or not they’ll germinate.
Bob the Builder was back at it for a day before the next wave of Spring/Winter storms roll in so that a soil test can happen at Mike’s mom’s house, and we have some more critters on the trail cameras!

Garden Ep 3 + Game Cameras

I’m beginning to take the plants out, at least during the day, to start the process of hardening them to go out into the garden full time. I’ve also started another tray of seeds, and I’m reconsidering the garden location for this year. We also went around today and pulled all the video from the game cameras. #gardening #deer #colorado #highaltitudegardening

HUGE APOLOGY TO PATRONS! I forgot to add y’all into this video!
HUGE thank you to Patrons! Ryssa Chrysalis, Heather Bonnet-Hebert, & Tara Richards!
We added a 2nd grow light to the room, picked up some fertilizer for the seedlings, as well as some plastic cups and potting soil for some of the larger seedlings. Spring is coming!
