Earth Day

Making my existence a bit more earth friendly is important.

What happened this year?

We used half the amount of propane for heat this year then last.
Opening and closing blinds at certain times of the day was a major help.

A number of solar lights made it into our lives.

Most of the "regular lamps" are now led.
A solar oven has arrived.
Learning how to use it will be a delight of the summer.
Our garden is up (literally) and running.
The plants that were not sprouted in our kitchen were sprouted by Mrs Yoder in the next community.

The new composter has produced the first batch of soil for the box.
This will be the second time for the local CSA. Yum.
We also have started to purchase all of our eggs, chicken and beef locally.

The stream at the back of our property had bogged in a few places. Some work in the late winter cleared the bogs and the stream is once again flowing properly.
The two of us worked several trail projects for the town. Litter still seems to be a problem in Delaware.

A good start for our new home.
Happy Earth Day!
