Real Life Angry Birds

So our oldest likes angry birds on the phone but I really want to get them out the house so ... lets play angry birds in REAL LIFE! It was fun. We purchased some balls in different sizes and colors and used a exercise band as the sling shot.

Okay the slingshot was a bit harder maybe we will save that for when they are older. So we let them just throw the balls. They had a blast.

Raised Beds

We finally finished the raised beds.

We decided to use a drip irriagtion system. I eventually want to get a timer and maybe hook it up to a rasberry pi 

It was really easy to put together. 

all and all I really like it. i'm sure i could've made one out of pvc just as easy but i think this was easy to control the amount of water spraying versus expermiting with different hole sizes and estimating the headloss through the various orifices.
