It’s always fun to think ahead whenever you purchase materials to use.
I try to ask myself things like….How long will they last? What else could I do with them?
Last year, we built a fort out of straw bales and it saw many pint-sized adventures in each of the four seasons, but the time has come for it to be disassembled and used elsewhere.
Our daughter’s fort was happily scattered about the yard and garden for some much needed mulch.
And the little miss is well on her way to building a new ‘grown up version’ of her fort…only the next one is out of salvaged wood and will be around for a long, long time. It’s a pretty special Father/Daughter project that is teaching her some sweet building skills….more on that to come.
Cheers to ‘living it up’ in your mulch before you use it!
