Home Schooling

I recently started homeschooling my 12 year old son using time4learning.com and I have noticed a huge change in him in just a few short weeks. He was failing 6th grade at public school and now he enjoys learning, he likes to do research on new topics and enhance his learning of things he learns in his time4learning.com leassons. He has read one book and half way through a 2nd book in a series and is so proud of himself because he has never finished reading a book before.
He enjoys talking about what he has learned and he gets up each morning ready to get to learning.
I would recommend time4learning.com to anyone for home schooling, after school or summer learning.

As a member of Time4Learning, I have been given the opportunity to review their program and share my experiences. While I was compensated, this review was not written or edited by Time4Learning and my opinion is entirely my own. For more information, check out their standards-based curriculum or learn how to write your own curriculum review.

Good Afternoon/Evening

Hello to all who choose to read my posts.

I have been diligently working this week on my business and getting some paperwork and other stuff squared away.

I will be able to start hiring a few people in the next week or so it seems.

I haven’t seen much good info to share with you in my travels this week anyway.

I will be updating as I find things.

Have a good weekend.

Vacation

I am taking the kids on a mini vacation today so I will not be posting for a couple days.
I hope they can keep from arguing long enough for me to have a good time.

Plant a compact vegetable garden

What makes this compact garden so productive is that you will be placing plants close together in squares instead of traditional rows. You can continue to plant as you harvest.

garden-big2WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  • Hammer
  • Saw
  • Shovel
  • Wire cutters
  • Tape measure
  • 4 4-foot 2-by-10′s
  • 16d galvanized nails
  • 2 6-foot 2-by-4′s
  • 4-foot 2-by-4
  • 49 feet of 12-gauge galvanized wire, cut into 7 7-foot lengths
  • 8d galvanized nails
  • About 1/2 cubic yard or 14 cubic feet of good garden soil
  • A sunny spot for your garden

WHAT YOU’LL DO

Frame

1. Using the 2-by-10′s and 16d nails, hammer together a 4-foot square.

Trellis

2. Nail the 6-foot 2-by-4′s to the back of the frame.

3. Nail the 4-foot 2-by-4 across the back of the uprights.

4. Attach the 7 wires on the back of the trellis by wrapping wires around nails.

Planting

Fill the frame with good garden soil. Divide it into 16 squares. The smaller the mature plant, the more you can plant in each square.

A Helpful Garden

Nail 5/8-inch or heavier exterior plywood to the bottom of the frame and lift the frame to table height by placing it on sturdy saw horses or legs. Once filled with soil, it will be easily accessible to a person in a wheelchair or someone who is more comfortable sitting than kneeling.
