Spring Granny Square Swap - Page 76

post #751 of 1145

New Mexico Forest Svc. has a seedling sale every year, if you own at least 1 acre in NM you can purchase trees and they have a special releaf project for areas that have been decimated by man or nature. They always give me a good donation for my soil/water/tree project every year. Here it's against the law to clear more land than you are using, it has to stay fully desert or treed if that is it's natural state. They are enforcing it much more now thank the heavens.

I have another neighbor who has cleared his land and mows it all summer.  He doesn't use it for anything just cleared it and left it.  sad.png

That's pretty normal out here.  Most plots are 10 acres, give or take, and folks just doze all the sage down and then leave it.  Some have horses or cattle but many do nothing with it.  I guess they do it to remove habitat for rattlers or to remove the fire danger but the bare land causes terrible problems with sand flying when it gets windy (and it gets very windy up here often).  I wish they would just stick to a defensible space around their houses instead of leveling all 10 acres.



 

 

Don't miss the new Nevada thread pages here!  These pages are in their infancy so don't hesitate to send me suggestions for additions or improvements.  Just be kind... I'm old and technologically challenged.     LOL

I wish NY was like that.  Some time ago I noticed some clearing of land nearby and call the town.  I was told they weren't supposed to clear it but whether anything was done I don't know.  

 

One thing I will say is I visited Isreal twice and was saddened by the desert like mountains.  If we don't take care our mountains can  become the same way.  I think that trees are a good way to determine the pollution in the air.  At least I think I've read that.  

 

Folks are surprised we see little deer here but there is no "corridor"' for them to travel through from one place to another.   It's very important for migrating animals to have a "path" from one place to the next.

Just to be clear.  We need 14 squares per set, right?   Just want to be sure with those who dropped out and those who jumped in.   big_smile.png

I went to page 1 and looked at the list,, it just has my name, but it should have me plus 3 students so the total would be 17.

I think that there was sort of a 'vote' a few pages back where everyone agreed to round it to an even 20. 

I had to chuck my first 17 - so I've only got 11 so far - but at 2/night (couple of times a week) I should be caught back up soon.

 

 

Writer, I think the idea of a swap designed to produce one of those quilts sound interesting.  I'm not sure I'd have the commitment to keep cranking out the same color/pattern over and over again.  But that got me to thinking - what about a 'crazy quilt' where everyone returns a square made of 9 little granny squares?  Each one done like a single 'sampler' of a quilt square pattern?
