YHWH’s Holy Days for 2020

Shabbat Shalom!

There are differences of opinion about how to determine the dates of the beginning of the year and the dates of the Lord’s commanded to keep holy days (for His set apart people).  I’ve studied and, for now at least, this way of Scriptural understanding is what i believe.  However, the dates (not the holy days) should not be a divisive issue.

How to calculate the calendar.
1) A year begins at the first new moon after the vernal equinox.
2) A month starts at the sundown after the lunar conjunction.
See our teachings “Calendar Confusion” and “The Calendar” to learn more.

Yom Kippur

Thankfully, I’ve accomplished quite a lot despite being inside most of the days.  I did mess up by mowing a small bit of tall lawn after my recip cows had grazed a spot about as short as they were going to.  Yeah, i was pretty shut down the next day.  My bad.

I had posted on facebook about building what The Seed Guy calls a lasagne bed.  By that he means to layer brown and green compostable stuff to build soil for next spring’s garden.  I scrounged around for a couple of 16 ft boards and cut a couple of 2 ft boards and lag screwed the four pieces into a long box.  Yes, i know that a 4 by 16 foot bed would be more efficient, but as you can see from my photo, i can only reasonable access two feet because of its proximaty to the propane tank.  Plus, this is plenty big for me; i don’t particularly like to garden and i’m not good at it at all.  But, I like a particular variety of heirloom tomato and my Asian long pole green beans.  I might throw in a few lettuce and spinach seeds early in the season.

16 ft x 2 ft raised bed.  Will start layer with cardboard, then add green grass clippings, then maybe hay or food scraps, then top with a sprinkling of soil and wet it down.

Also, managed to defrost and clean out the freezer amongst a host of other tasks.

Vacuumed out first.

Frozen food stacked outside while the freezer defrosts.

I like to scoop out the ice before it melts. Much easier to pack out ice, than mop up water.

Yom Kippur!

Starts at sundown and goes until tomorrow at sundown.  A shabbat.
