For some time we’ve had a list of green living projects to do, and this sumer we checked two off the list:
- a successful vegetable garden
- an outdoor clothesline.
The garden was smooth sailing. We started out with some fail-safe plants: carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, and pole peas, all of which produced a bountiful crop throughout the summer. Next year we’ll add even more to the garden; I’m thinking broccoli, cauliflower, rhubarb, cucumbers. Any other ideas?
The clothesline was easy enough. V bought two lengths of heavy duty coated wire and strung it between the kids play equipment and the fence. I’m not only saving energy by drying clothes outside, I’m also cutting down on our utility bill and thoroughly enjoying myself in the process; it’s really quite relaxing. And there are few things in the world that smell better than fresh laundry off the line.
