I spent the entire morning corn-rowing Julia's hair. Later in the day, I observed embedded dirt and asked her what happened. She replied, "Tori threw dirt in my hair." Oh well, it's staying a minimum of two weeks either way!JD started another one of our building projects. We are installing three solar panels on the roof that should provide all the hot water our home needs. In case you are wondering, these enormous solar panels have taken up a good chunk of unfinished basement floor room since we moved in. Right now, we are using an instant demand hot water heater, so we should see a nice reduction in our monthly electricity bill as soon as they are up and running.
And, here's my new excitement (other than my fruit trees.) This is our first roto-tiller, kind of a necessity when you are trying to become a "real" gardener. I think it reveals something about me that my greatest material wish of lately is a tiller; I'm equally excited that my husband will till my every desired planting spot, since I'm subjected to the neck I have at the moment.
I did not lay grass-seed today, since they are calling for snow tonight and tomorrow (how annoying towards the end of March in Virginia.) We also did not plant our fruit trees since we are working on securing a truck-load of horse manure to plant them with. I guess we'll be out there as soon as the snow thaws.
