Well, Fall is here at Farm My Yard HQ. It’s been a great Summer. Now we’re picking squash, cucumbers, melons, chard, kale and tomatoes. Thinking of what to plant. What would you plant this time of year in the Pacific Northwest? Â I had a great time last night at a Center for Earth Leadership event. They are a great organization that offers a number of programs. The one I took last year was an Agent of Change class – partially how I got the umpf to put this site and project together, actually. Â I got to hear Neil Kelly speak – he and his firm are leaders in sustainability and he’s been at it for years. A very inspiring speaker.
Have a great Fall. Â Who needs a sign! Â I’ve given away 3 in the last 2 weeks. Â Still more available and now is a great time to have someone help you farm your yard!
We just got our first financial contribution fromÂ Derek Grant – so sweet, thank you, Derek!
If you’d like to contribute to the cause donations are welcome! There’s a handy PayPal link on the right side of the page. Your contributions will be used to further the cause – I promise!
It’s been a fun summer of farming, and answering a lot of questions about what Farm My Yard is about. Â I’m also continuing to flesh that out in my own mind and am looking for a couple $ grand to get some signs printed out and take this idea for a spin.
I hope you had a great Summer!
