turned into one heck of a project. Fun. Looks good. Lots of rototilling
and building and wheelbarrow loading and unloading and on and
on. We’ll see how I feel when everything is ready to pick on the
garden? That happens to be one of the projects that have been
keeping me busy.
here, as May winds down, we’re getting back on top of things.
I think—stress THINK—that is going to mean a very productive
June (and summer) around Backpackville. For now, I’m going to

the weekend, and the next issue of A

some plans that should translate to special projects (and maybe
even announcements) in June.
Friends challenge for this month is From the
Garden. What do you need to build your garden, take care of it,
and get the plants in place? Are there nurseries and stands nearby
featuring items for you to grow or bring to your table?
Friends for Local Business continues to the end of May.

it is a bit similar to last month, as far as how being outside
and gardens can be used. But there are a few differences. This
one isn’t about working outside around the home. This is specifically
about gardens and what they produce, along with the local shops
and stands that deliver fruits and vegetables from farms and gardens.

your supplies? Stakes and fencing… plants and seeds… all of the
materials involved in organizing and maintaining your garden.
you support the gardens—or, often more accurately, farms—in your
community by purchasing plants at nearby nurseries and stands.
This month’s challenge also includes picking up fruits and vegetables
that you bring into your home.
third volume of the effort continues with the May release. New
issue should be out by Thursday or Friday this week. (Maybe Saturday…
but let’s keep the fingers crossed for Friday.)
