Possible Summer Projects

- Build & install a Bat House: We have Little Brown Bats in Minnesota, and each bat will eat up to 8000 skeeters in one night! I think they're cute - they look like hamsters with wings. Anyhoo, the poor critters have tough times finding good places to live, so I'd like to provide room and board. In turn, I'll have a skeeter-free yard. Bat houses are simple, I'll probably make one like this

- Sprout seedlings without killing them(first attempt failed, more determined this time)

- Help seedlings grow into flowers & veggies in dirt and in straw bales (straw bale gardens are cheap, simple & nice raised beds)

- A rain barrel would be good

- Renovate garden shed to accomodate hens
