Weekend reading

Everyone must have been busy this week, they've not been many comments here.  Whatever you're doing, I hope it's progressing well. Take care.

  2. Rhonda - I never comment (sorry!) but it looks like this is my moment! I've been a regular reader for about a year, including many but not even close to all of your archives. I've bookmarked many of your most pertinent-to-me posts during that time, but I want to let you know that I've bookmarked practically every post you've written in 2014. As far as inspiring and instructing me, you are on an absolute roll, and that bar was already set very high. Thank you thank you for all that you put into this blog!

  3. Yesterday I finished my first dishcloth. It amazes me how such a little thing can make my kitchen more homely. I now look forward to wiping the table and washing the dishes :). Thank you, Rhonda, for inspiring us to do better every day!

    1. That's great, Aili, but don't stop at one. Keep going and build up a stash of them to use and to give as gifts. I'm currently knitting a set of six for my sister. I just do a bit when I can and it slowly comes together.

  4. Morning Rhonda & Hanno, I always read your posts even if it is a few days later, and they always inspire me :) I am really enjoying the simple life of our home ... Barry and I went to Joe's Connected Garden (an open garden) they mentioned the 'The Seed Collection' site so after looking through this site and ordering, I have been enjoying putting seeds into seed tray and this time making note of how many Ive planted (I get a little carried away with raising seeds) ... our Gloria (chookie) died yesterday .. she was a loner and always had her own private yard ...sad as it may be we are looking forward to getting more chooks to take her home over. Have a lovely weekend. Julie

    1. I'm sorry to read about Gloria, Julie, but every change leads to new things and that's good. Good luck with your garden this year.

  6. Enjoy your weekend, Rhonda. Yes, it is nice to read comments on a blog isn't it? It helps to get to know your readers a little better. I always enjoy your blog posts even if I don't have time to comment and often intend to come back later and then forget. I often print them out for future reference like your seed raising and soap making tips.

  7. Lovely reading for the weekend as always, Rhonda. I can't make the "science of farming" link work though. Is it me or is it the coding?

    1. All fixed now, Cassie. It's a very good program. Well worth the time it takes.

  8. I have been reading your posts every day, & as usual have found some great info. We planted our vege seeds a few weeks ago & many of them have taken off very well, the beans & peas have been planted now, very easily I might add, cause we raised the seeds in the empty toilet rolls & as these break down so well we just put them straight into the ground. I am interested in the permaculture book by Linda Woodrow, can you tell me though if she includes info re companion planting as well,
    thanks Rhonda, hope you & Hanno have a nice weekend,
    Deb M

    1. Hi Deb, I'm planting up my toilet rolls this weekend. I like to use them for flowers. I can sprinkle the seeds over the top and then plant deep rooted clumps of flowers. I think companion planting is addressed in Linda's book. Have a good weekend.

  9. Enjoy the weekend Rhonda. I must admit it has been a pretty hectic week for me -- I haven't even gotten around to reading the guest post from Kate.
