Ready for the March NARR, it has been a long winter. The March NARR must mean it's officially Spring!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I have my eye on that galvanized raised bed. With our 'soil' being rock and clay, raised beds make it a whole lot easier to have a garden.

Question for @Dave ... Do you if it's the 34x34 or the 62x43 ?

Thanks Rob & Dave

How generous Rob!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I can't use acorns as I live outside the US and a lot of the raffle prizes are unable to be sent abroad, so as I have hundreds of acorns if anyone wants some let me know!

I'll still buy some tickets but will donate the prize if I win.

I've also got excess acorns, so the next 10 people who request them (excluding those who previously got them from Rob) will get 25 acorns for raffle tickets.
