We welcomed spring this weekend with eggs and cardboard. Henrik and I laid eggs at his art table and Rob laid cardboard down in our backyard. We were all welcoming spring. Our felted eggs emerged from the working of water and soap into felt with our hands. The eggs are drying and I will post their photos tomorrow.
If you have free time and are looking for something crafty to do tomorrow afternoon, Etsy will be hosting Kata Golda. She will be demonstrating how to make her finger puppets. I wrote about her Powell’s event here. I am looking forward to an excuse to sit down and make more finger puppets tomorrow.
Today’s project was wet and soapy and rolly polly.
Can’t wait to get started
Rolling one ball
Rolling a second ball
While we were getting our hands, and other parts of us as well, wet inside, Rob was outside in the rain preparing our new garden space. He started the process of spreading out cardboard on the grass in our backyard. We had a small planter box for last summer’s garden. This summer we are participating in the consulting program with Your Backyard Farmer (YBF).
We will be increasing our garden’s footprint from 30 to 250 sq. ft. this summer. We are having five yards of dirt delivered on Tuesday. We meet with our garden consultant once each month. My project for this month is to draw up our garden map based on the vegetables we have chosen to grow and the schematic from YBF. We are all very excited to be starting the process to grow more of our own food. I will have many more posts and photos to share as we transform our yard from grass to food!
Happy Spring Equinox and remember to mark the season’s change in your own life.
