Several things to discuss today.
You may remember the first wattle fence article with input from the Frontier Culture Museum. At the time, I advanced the theory with my husband that the wattles would create a cooler area on one side and a microclimate of warmth on the other. Well, I can’t confirm my entire theory yet, since we have yet to finish the fence Lack of cooperation with the weather I say, but none-the-less, we have been working on raising the other side. I know there are lots of global warming alarmists who insist the planet is getting warmer, but we had snow in October and snow in March, which makes 6 months of snow, and I thought winter was generally three months longs, plus or minus, but I digress….
So, despite all the gaps between the branches, and all the sun that it still permits to go through, the snow last week confirmed part of my theory.
We had highs in the fifties both Saturday and Sunday and experienced almost a full melt of the snow. Almost! Here is the one portion of the garden where the wattle is complete. I know where my spinach and lettuce are going this year
Second, I finished a fun little project, something I had wanted to try lately, one of the little jackets or vest crocheted in the round. This was made in a size small out of 100 percent mercerised cotton from Greece. It has a lovely sheen and a ribbon-like feel. The vest is available in the Meduseld Store.
