Today started with a big gust of wind and a lot of damage in the area. Luckily nothing of mine blew away (that I know about yet). I took the opportunity to build a new single compost bin. Single bins are not ideal if a person wants a lot of compost but it is perfect for people who only want to compost their kitchen scraps and a little yard waste. Looks much better than the black plastic bins they sell at the home improvement stores.
The Magnolia tree in my front yard is in bloom along with a Christmas flower that I have screwed up the timing of the bloom. I have to say this is the biggest bulb I have ever had flower. You be the judge if it is the biggest you have seen.
I had a full night of watching my son at tae kwan do and a little first grade spelling and reading. Tomorrow I start an exciting project that I will be blogging about in a lot more detail. I am creating a school garden at a local junior high school. The fence should be up soon and I will be busy cutting out the grass and getting ready to put in raised beds. We hope the garden will lead to a community garden concept in the near future. It is also finals week at the college where I teach so I will be busy.
Thanks for reading the blog. I would appreciate any feedback you can give me and any gardening topics you would like me to discuss in future blogs.
