I got my garden in - except for 4 rows of sunflowers which I am holding back on so I have a long season of bloom in September and October. Next I have to mulch it all with cardboard and old hay. We are so desperate for rain and I hope it comes soon. I can't water my garden because we don't have enough water to do both gardening and living. It is sink or swim for the plants. That is why mulch helps so much.
This past year, Julia took Woodshop at school. She loved it! I am so happy she has found something she likes to do with her hands - even if there are power tools involved. The last project they did was a joint project with the entire class. They made Adirondack chairs - each student contributing to the project with the skill they did best. Evidently Julia is an awesome sander.
They offer the chairs to student's families at the cost of the materials. We put our order in. It took three trips to the school to get them. They are huge! Made of cedar, we are contemplating staining them. Julia doesn't think I should but you know me!
Thank you Mr. P and Ruth for inspiring Julia to work with her hands.
