two jobs with one terramite


What do you do when you discover you have a leak in your water line, and a shovel just won't do the trick? Why, you violate child labor laws, of course!


Making the most of our eight-hour time allowance, we decided to use the terramite to turn over the earth for garden experiment, part deux.

Garden experiment, part un, took place last year, and resulted in a few zucchini, some beans, and lots of marigolds. Flashbacks of turning the hard, rocky ground with a Honda tiller were enough to convince us that while perhaps unorthodox, the terramite would definitely do the job.

I expect garden experiment, part deux, to fulfill all of its new-improved promise primarily because it will be full of shit. That's right -- excrement. Chicken and rabbit, to be exact. Plus a whole buncha rotten food, decayed leaves, and a little woodash. Go worms, go!

Woodash? Great idea about the terramite, can just imagine how much faster it would be than a little digger!

Whoa! That'd be Riley's dream! He suggested just the other day that perhaps we should get a 'boy sized' tractor so he could do a bit of digging. So did y'all find the leak in the line?

Looks like fun - can I help next time??

Hey J! Wood ash -- two words, really, but my brain prefers smooshing them together into one. We have tons of it from using the wood burning stove, but we can only use a little of it in the compost or it'll throw off the soil ph.

Hey Allison! Next time we rent heavy equipment, we'll give you guys a call. We (meaning, Lee) did find and repair the leak, thank goodness. Otherwise, we would have reverted to our pioneer ways.

Heather, you can definitely help next time! Hell, next time we'll plan a party around the machinery!

I was reading it woo dash and decided it must be an exotic fertilizer I'd never heard of ;-).

Your seed packages are beauts, I can imagine framing some of them, can't you?

Definitely, J -- if all else fails, at least I can decorate on a dime!
