I've sent off for a catalog, though I will most likely order online. Thing is, I can't decide if it's better to order chicks, eggs, or pullets. Well, no. Pullets cost too much to ship. So, chicks or…Continue
Started this discussion. Last reply by Jana Franzen Apr 28.
Dad helped me get pallets from the co-op, so I've got enough now to cobble together a playhouse. The kid was excited, until he helped nail the pallet that was the wrong size up into what I intend to make into a vertical garden wall. I want a house made out of those bloody things - it will take ages and eons for anything to get it apart once put together!

And then, I decided I would be this awesome doer of stuff type person...
and now I am paying for it. I did finish that section of the yard, however, and most of the second section. It's all short stuff, and I couldn't really tell where I had and hadn't been. Insufficient dandelions there. The last section will probably be done with the much lighter-weight version of that bad boy.
