I am officially in the bounty basket business. I made up my first two today - traded one for labor, and sold the other. I have received very positive feedback, and already have more orders for future baskets (yay!).
This basket included:
- 2 heads loose leaf lettuce
- 2 heads broccoli
- lavender bouquet
- baby potatoes
- one dozen eggs
About that labor I mentioned above - my neighbor came over with his tractor and dug me a huge hole to put the holding tank in the ground.

All we need to do is put the tank in, and shovel the dirt around it - both to fill in and create a duck friendly berm. I hope to get this done over the weekend, and I also hope to post pictures. This is something I have wanted done for years, and am very excited to see it so close to being finished.

Waddles and her babies are doing great. As usual, the ducklings seem to be growing overnight. They seem curious about the pond project and keep wandering over to take a look. It'll be fun watching them splash about in the water!
Things still to come:
- finishing the pond
- fencing in the pond and land around it for the ducks
- keeping up with replanting areas that I have harvested
- water, water, water
At least, that's what I think I'll be focusing on. Sometimes I get distracted/excited about new projects. There's just too much fun to be had!
