Update: for those who have been wondering what we are up to, the big unpacking fest hasn’t started yet. In fact, I’m yet to see the new house. I’m staying with the kids at my mom’s, while my husband is busy fixing things up and painting. The break has been enjoyable, but all too soon, it will be time for the hullabaloo of cardboard boxes.
I can’t wait. No, seriously. Packing and unpacking a house is one big overhaul, but it feels so good when it’s done .
Still, I’m looking forward to the moment when we get through the chaos, the dust settles down, and we can really turn the page and start a new chapter in our new home.
In the meantime, I’m trying to make up for the lack of action by reading about micro-farming, urban homesteading and container gardening. My latest find was Vertical Gardening by Olivia Abby, a neat little book for those who love to get their fingers into earth but don’t have any backyard space.
It’s an enjoyable read, though it didn’t bring me any very great novelties on container gardening. It is, however, a well mapped-out, thorough, basic guide with all the signposts in place.
So… I’m waiting for that moment when I can finally stop reading and get to doing all that good stuff. Stay tuned .

Quite a while ago I visited a home in the city where the people had covered one wall of their back yard with a vertical garden. It was very impressive, helped cut down on city noises and – of course – provided them with both fresh veggies and lovely flowers all summer long.

It’s really inspiring what some people are able to do with very little.
