It's been a perfect fall day here in the bush, perfect day for brothers and sisters to get together and do some planting. In the past they always had to work close to the ground, sometimes on their knees. Not good as one ages.
Paul came up with a brilliant idea ....... a conduit planter. This device opens a hole, and then you simple let the seeds slide down into the depression already made. Brilliant, no bending, no getting down on your knees.
It is also much faster.
Before the gang arrived Mary baked tarts and scones and also cleaned out two raised garden beds. It has been a busy productive day.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we share life off the grid and down the road.
