A beautiful day

Today it was like summer outside.  Sarah helped me plant a few hundred flower bulbs for our cutting garden.  We put them in buckets.  And maybe she can even sell flowers to help her earn money for her trip to China?  I still have hundreds of more bulbs to plant.  I got carried away at the store.  I always do.  Nicole was not here to stop me.  Not that she really could stop me!  But I ran out of buckets, so we need to get more.  I like the idea of growing flowers in containers.  You can put them in the garden to fill in any empty spots.  When they are finished blooming, you can replace them with another bucket.  No more digging up gladiolas and Dahlias.  Today we planted…Ixia mix, Lilly called Kingdom, Zantedeschia , Steppenkerzen, Orfeo Dahlia, Gladiolas called expresso, After Schock, Buggy, and Passos, Dahlia Kogane, Crocosmia Lucifer, and Iris Hollandica, Alehemilla Mollis, and Eryngium planum.

Pretty, I usually don't plant flowers, I like them.

But my garden budget doesn't afford me to plant them. So I plant veggies, because we can eat them.

chicken coop idea

Why not start with an IBC and cut a hole for the door? You could build closed laying boxes into it, and something for the chickens to roost on. Put some straw or saw dust on the floor. You could add vents to the side for air. If it sat inside a chicken run that you can walk into, the chickens could be safe, dry and happy. I have an extra IBC. Maybe this could be my chicken house? I bet I could even plant the outside of it with mud and grass for extra insulation and good looks.

I love the idea

I think I've loved old stuff my whole life. I love 2nd hand stores so much more then new stores. And a container house is really just taking what is old and using it in a new way. It's cheaper to build with and good for the earth.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Juergen worked all day at the old house. This is after working every night there after work. My poor sweetheart is so tired! And he showed the house to 3 different families. It was too big for all of them. 2 families had no children, and one had a baby. It has 5 bedrooms, why do they look at all? And Sarah had a 2 hour cry over cleaning her bedroom. I think the cry had more to do with Juergen being gone all the time. We are feeling a little beaten up. I'm sure it will be OK, but it's hard not to feel discouraged. Part of this is just being too tired. "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. " Proverbs 13:12 We are feeling the pain of a sick heart, but still hoping for the tree of life. I hope it all get’s resolved soon. And for tonight, that we can rest. Everything looks dark when you are too tired!
