Gardening, magazine update, newsletter update, etc

Oh my, it seems that I have managed to find a way to work in a garden after all. DH sits and shakes his head and laughs at me. A wonderful man not far from us in Loris has decided to start an organic farm/market garden. He will have a CSA (community supported agriculture) program up and running next year, or at least that is the plan. We read his original post on our local Craigslist. I called him yesterday and had a wonderful time speaking with him. We have volunteered to work in his garden, which he was breaking ground on yesterday. A man after my own heart he is using seeds from my favorite supplier, Baker Creek and organic techniques. The kids are excited and we are all looking forward to truly locally grown fresh produce. I can’t wait to taste the strawberries he has going. Hopefully some fresh eggs from time to time as he builds up his flock of free range laying hens. So we will be adding gardening posts to this general ramble possibly starting as early as next week.

I am almost done with the UU Homeschooling newsletter. Layout is taking a bit longer than I expected to and hopefully will be satisfactory to everyone. We are hoping for a few more articles for the next one. It will be a quarterly newsletter and I will post where it can be found as soon as I know. 🙂 I will probably also have it ready for download from my both this blog and my homeschooling blog.

Independant Family Living Ezine will be up and running by the second half of the year. This will be a quarterly subscription. It will include a lot of things including a frugal living section, unschooling adventures, recipes, and other articles. It will have its own website and forum, there will be link off my main website just for the Ezine.

My main website is coming along, I am cheating and using the hosting company’s web builder, at least for now. I am still struggling with Dreamweaver. However, I am pretty confident in my abilities with Photoshop and InDesign. I am still going to put a Frugal Cookbook together, though I want to come up with a snazzy name for it. The Life Organizer is still under reconstruction but should be available soon.

I have given both blogs a fresh new look. We will see how long that lasts, it is a bit of work to make sure all my widgets are in place, but it looks like I need to still redo a couple of things. They will get done eventually.

Well, that’s it for now. I am off to cook dinner and find my children. We turned them loose on the world.
