Encyclopedia of Me - L

L is for Light - Florescent that it is. This is the fourth house The Tramp and I have lived in together and once again we've worked on changing all the light bulbs to the most energy efficient. The Tramp would like to live "off the grid" and to that end he spends quite a bit of time reading up on the subject. Last week I heard all about solar panels to power the well pump. :) Fine with me. I'm not used to doing without water when the power goes out!

I'd like to have rain barrels and use grey water for the gardens and lawn. I wish we'd been here sooner and had time to prepare for this awful drought. Everything is yellowing, wilted or crisp. Not a good summer to be a farmer in North Carolina.
