This week, I'm on to new reading and knitting. I'm almost finished with a baby sweater I've been knitting for a friend of mine. It's actually an overdue present, but I over estimated my ability to knit quickly. I just have a sleeve to add, and some ends to weave in, and it will be finished! I'd really like her to be able to wear it before she outgrows the darn thing.
I'm also on to some new reading for the garden. This week, I just started Teaming with Microbes. I've always been interested in enriching the soil of my garden, and creating a healthier micro ecosystem in my yard. This book provides the methods to create rich soil, and the science behind those methods. It would be a great book to use with middle schoolers studying biology. It even discusses how to count the microbe in a soil sample. Over spring break next week, I plan to delve into the text more fully.
I'm joining Ginny's yarn along this week. I link in the morning, but I don't get a chance to comment until the afternoon . Please, if you stop by, say hi!
