Brother’s Campfire Event

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

It has been a little while since I wrote as the days have been jam packed from sunrise to sunset and knowing where to begin is tough this beautiful Saturday morning. I will say this was something different to wake up to recently.

As sweet as my 16-year-old daughter is, she has a mischievous streak that brings a lot of laughter.

Being together as a family is important and we have get-togethers as often as possible. On Tuesday, a relative came for a visit from far away and a whole bunch of people showed up for the latest one. The Twelve Year Veteran Of Life was quite helpful in assisting in preparation for the event and rebuilt a pallet for use as a bench while my Beloved sewed a cushion for it.

I had to quickly figure out what to do with a truckload of lawn clippings that was dropped off and smelled like…. like rotten grass clippings.

I figured it out and was able to reduce the smell of the compostable material by mixing it with wood chips.

Despite a party, I never turn down compost. Making dirt is important for an urban farmer. Thankfully, my guests didn’t seem to mind the murky haze that engulfed them.

The event was a hit including a Campfire, lots of food, homemade zipline, airsoft wars, giant bubbles, sprinkler running,

and some good old guitar strumming.

Well, off to some new adventures!
