Our EarthMinded™ package, ordered appropriately on Earth Day, arrived today! We will be harvesting rain from the roof of the house and collecting it into a cistern to use to water our new garden (more about that garden and the fencing project to follow!), thereby conserving precious ground/well water for our home use.
If all goes well with this project, we will be doing the same down at the barn for water useage there!
As for the garden, this morning I went outside to find 3 guilty looking deer just over the hill from said garden. Glancing over at the garden, I had my suspicion as to what had taken place early this morning. One of the posts was bent, and much of the netting had been pulled down. There wasn’t a single hoofprint in the garden, so we are thinking the deer tested the fence, making a mess of it, but didn’t make it into the garden, thankfully! Roy has mended the fence, and hopefully the deer have learned their lesson, but I won’t be holding my breath!
