• Going Back out under a Light Rain on Day 6

    Day 5 came and went some time last week, and I was able to get half way through the double digging project. We’ve actually decided to convert our six-year old cold frames into relatively low raised beds, and this required some lumber tweaking. For a decent landscaper, I’m a terrible carpenter, but I did have fun getting the old tool belt out for the job.


    As a light rain falls on Santa Fe this morning, I have the choice of heading out to the farmers’ market on my bike or to getting back to the double digging. I’m choosing digging on the basis of the fact that working outside during a drizzle in the desert is nothing other than soul quenching—plus with HGTV shooting our backyard in a couple weeks, I really need work on my abs.

The final frontier.

These are the musings of an engaging enterprise.
Its thirty-year mission:

To create a greener planet.

To seek a better life in our lumbering civilization, and

to slowly go where we are all are headed anyway.


Is an unproven system for generating wide-spread sustainability.

it asks for 10 minutes a day for a year. At the end of the year, it asks for 10 more.

So in the second year, you spend just 20 minutes a day, in the third year, 30 minutes.

If you keep up this pattern, 27 years later you spend over 4 hours per day being extremely green.
