I have taken the clothesline challenge! Gift of Green started a clothesline challenge for the months of May, June, and July. Basically it is just a challenge to get some to all of your clothes up on the clothesline and out of that dryer. With all the winter months, I can't really get them up all year round, but once the snow is gone and gone for a while (in Northern Michigan you never know when that is going to be.)I start to hang them up. I signed up for the advance, because I try to hang 95% or more of my laundry on the line when it is clothesline season. It normally goes well. I don't like the crunchy towels so I do dry some of those in the dryer. But that is about it. In fact it has been rainy for the last week, so I have just held off on laundry so I can line dry it. It is hanging up now, and hopefully will be dry in the morning, when I wake up because the forecast calls for rain at 7am.
Here are a couple of pics of my clothesline. The first being a week or two ago, when I started the challenge, and the second is from today.
