I store my drum carder with the belt off not because of my cats, although I'm sure they would find the belt delicious, but because I've had the belt stretch out and the carder not work as well.

Card Weaving on an Inkle loom?  What an awesome idea!!  I would imagine that it was much easier to keep the tension consistent!!

aren't those highly poisenous if someone eats them....not saying someone's gonna eat um....but that's what I thought...anywho....they're sooo pretty...wonder why so many were out?  strange.  now ya gotta make a stuffie!  yay! for wildlife rescue!

Yes they can be very poisonous!!  I almost lost my cat who mouthed my pet newt (didn't consume any part of it).  Same toxin as the Fugi fish.  If you have any small children or pets in the house, I would recommend setting the newts free close to a pond!

About a half acre.  We do a little sprinklering and a little can watering.  Just depends on when the rain barrels are empty.

Best thing we found was "aqua spikes" which screw onto the tops of pop bottles for watering.  We used them in the beds last year and they really helped to keep them moist.

Here's last year's garden.  We brought in 30 yards of topsoil.  The main veggie garden is about 50 feet by 40 deep.  Would you believe I got about 30 pounds of beets out of it??

Ignore the back of this photo.  It's supposed to be my flower/shade garden, but I ran out of money and time to keep it up last year.

On the left is our "corn patch" which is 6 feet deep and 50 long.  You can see the three raised beds of squash along the back too, I used a fourth for my strawberry patch, but it's just out of the picture on the right.

Good luck with your garden!!!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Tablecloth to Fancy retro Tea towels! on: March 10, 2008 05:42:58 PM
I have a "thing" for tea towels, but the cute ones are soooo expensive.  So I purchased some fun retro fabrics to make some with.  The white towel is made from a nice linen tablecloth I purchased from a local thrift store.  Have quite a few more to make, but was too excited and decided to post the pictures from the first set!

Good lord, planting already??!!!  I'm in Zone 3, and have frost until May, so I'm very envious!!!

Nice raised bed!  We used them last year to contain our squash and they worked not too badly.  Did have a tendency to dry out quickly.
