The anniversary of My Desultory Blog with a garden idea

Posted By on April 25, 2009

Occasionally I enjoy looking at archived posts from the previous year, or even several years ago by clicking on links in the right hand side bar’s Years ago on this day list. It is surprising how fast 4 years have gone by? Years ago on this dayIt was in April 2005 that I moved my paper journal to a blog format and perhaps went public with my first desultory post. Thankfully I’m not a professional journalist or concerned about my reputation as a writer — I would have wisely quit a long time ago. If you have read my blog often, you’ve no doubt noticed that I’m not much for proofreading; I’ve purposely opted for quantity over quality. To those who are offended … my apology.
Nevertheless, blogging something each day has been therapeutic for me. It offers a few minutes to reflect on something that is on my mind in that particular moment. One of the benefits of being non-topical is that there is always something to post. In fact on this weekend as I prepare to tend to the yard I’m thinking about the garden … thoughts of making it a raised garden with a rabbit fence and rain barrel perhaps? (an idea photo below) Hmm … with that, I’m heading out into the yard to enjoy this fine weekend.

    Looks like a decent setup with lots of space for your plants. A rain barrel would be a great addition to this garden. I use a recycled food grade terracotta barrel along with this diverter
