Some weeks ago, a friend of ours sent us this link to a film featuring the woodchip-mulching technique that a man uses to sustain his garden in the rain shadow of a mountain--without ever watering it.
Ever since, we've been praying for a wood chipper to borrow. After all, God seems to have provided us with plenty of raw material to work with:
The tree we cut down to allow more light to shine on the patch where we'll transplant our strawberries:
The part of a clump of trees that fell down when the boys were climbing on it (no worries; no one was hurt):
And the vines that grow so obnoxiously on, over, and around the southeast fence:
A man in town told Paul he thought he might have a chipper we could borrow, but we're still trying to get connected on that. So we're still praying.
Pray with us?
