Earth Day

Happy Earth Day! I'd like to say that I've gotten tons and tons of stuff done in my garden and that I've been so busy with that that I haven't had time to update what's been going on. In truth.... I don't have one thing planted yet. But I do have some herbs and tomatoes started on my kitchen table. I should have started them a month or so before I did, but... I did.

Anyway. Ashli over at Maillardville Manor issued a pledge to reduce your waste. This isn't anything new to my household as we have been slowly changing our ways. This just keeps me going a little bit.

One of the biggest things I want to accomplish is to start a compost. I just need to buckle down and find myself a few more free pallets (I have one) and then I will probably need a shovel as well. Then I'll be in business. I do want to get a yard waste bin so I have a place for branches and other yard waste that I don't want in my compost.

We are pretty good with recycling now that I have a system in place for us.

We use very little paper products in our house. I can't remember the last time I bought napkins. Paper towels aren't a frequent purchase either. I just recently made towels/napkins (a post in the works in my head). We've been cloth diapering Kaelyn (which I don't think I've ever really done a post about). And some other changes that may or may not get a post or even a mention soon.

I join Ashli in her pledge!
