The goal this year has been to get the last of the raised garden beds built, placed, filled and covered so that we can get all the vegetables planted in the area in and around our greenhouse. The bigger garden is transitioning into a berry patch and small orchard. I got 6 of the 9 beds built but can’t place them yet because it’s been too muddy from all the melting snow. As soon as it dries up a bit they will go into place and I’ll call in the order for yet another semi-load of planters soil. I just unloaded the 50 2×4’s to start building the hail and sun guards as well. I’m looking forward to just working the gardens this summer with minimal construction tasks. Once done this will bring us up to 40 framed beds and the new orchard; roughly an acre.
I will be building one more fence to replace the netting we have around the greenhouse gardens to keep the dogs out, and I’ll be getting the water catchment and storage tanks hooked up and plumbed, but that is nothing compared to years past. We’re going to combat this drought one way or another.
We have no more time for “beliefs.” “I don’t believe we are headed for trouble.” I don’t believe in Climate Change” “Or, “If it is real, humans aren’t the cause”. Along with the biggest reality denier: “If things progress as they are, then “By the end of the century things will start getting bad”. If you think that, then quit reading this blog. I’m done glossing things over. I’ve gone into retreat here on the homestead and have gone no contact with most of the world so that I can heal and regroup from abuse and from the ignorance of the society we live in that has been perpetrated by a culture that deifys and elevates Sociopaths and Narcissists. We are all being gaslighted and my experience with Narcissistic abuse has shown me that the ruling elite are doing it to everyone. You are being made to ignore the man behind the curtain and told to only listen and believe what the thin veil of doublespeak tells you. Orwell was right. This system is coming down and it’s high time we quit worrying about ruffling our abuser‘s feathers by talking about it. Saving for some “retirement”? What a joke. This embedded video speaks the truth. The financial system is going to collapse as nature does. You don’t want the truth? Go to Disneyland. This is why I dropped out. This is why for most of 2019 I will be unavailable to family and to society. There is work to be done and hurt feelings can go drown in someone else’s wine.
To quote Greta in my last video posting above, “I want you to panic.”
