Kombrink Real Estate Group: The Green Experiment; Sit and Wait.

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance

Waiting for Mother Nature.

I haven't updated my Green Experiment blog lately because there really hasn't been much to add at this point.  We've got our seeds started and some are sprouting and beginning to grow.

Kyle has started to produce more components for his vertical and hydronic gardening system and it's really too early to forage for any spring time plants like wild asparagus or mushrooms.  Too late for hickory nuts or rose hips.

So, now is the time to wait....continue starting my seedlings...and be as efficient with our resources as possible.

Looking for the Right Land.

Kyle and I really love our current home.  He designed it and we built it together over a period of 2 years.  It sits on 2.5 acres with a small area of woods.  Theres a small creek that runs through the woods, but no pond or other source of water on the property.

This bothers Kyle quite a bit...so we've kind of been looking into finding a piece of property with a water source on it.  We may have found the right one...it has potential.

So, we may be getting our home ready to put on the market soon.  It was definitely a hard decision to make. However, we don't feel we can really be self-sufficient on the property we have now.

Grandchildren due soon!

Everyday, my daughter's belly gets a little bigger.  I'm sure my daughter-in-law is doing the same.  William and Caden will be coming into our world in about 5-6 weeks and I can't wait.

So, as I watch my seedlings germinate and wait for them to be ready to plant...I also watch my grandson growing and getting ready to make his appearance along with spring.

I guess this blog is really all about waiting.  Sometimes we just have to sit and wait...and let mother nature do her thing.  :)

Thanks Zane.  I will keep you posted as we do more.  I was excited because we had some warm weather, but it's turned cold again...I know spring will arrive eventually.

I hear you Jesse.  Right now nothing new going on with the Green Experiment.  Seedlings are sprouting and Kyle is producing the vertical hydroponic system to plant them in when they get big enough.  Mushroom hunting season starts in about a month, so I'm going out with some experienced hunters to learn what to look for.

Chicks are in at the farm store, but we're not quite ready to raise chickens yet.  I've got a big closing in the middle of the month and I'm taking some sales training.  That's about it for now.  As soon as we get moving forward....I will have more to write.  In the meantime...just waiting for mother nature to take her course.
