The Garden and The Shed

It's been an incredibly busy few weeks at the garden. We got the rubble trench filled, the earth bags in place, and to-ups built in preparation for last weekend's workshop. Then our straw baling instructor, Mark Schueneman, came for an amazing Saturday and Sunday. He gave a really informative presentation covering the general best practices of straw baling, and then we stacked lots of bails. We are looking forward to part two, which will cover prepping the shed for, mixing, and applying plaster. That workshop will be the weekend of the 25th and 26th. 

In the mean time we have lots of work that needs to be done. Need to build the remaining box beams, stuff straw into gaps, and finish the last bit of stacking. We will definitely have a work day sometime soon. Yesterday, Richard and I got the tar paper on our roof and now we are researching the best approach for the finish it up. Here are some picture of the garden, and all the recent festivities.
