Inside again. Trains sprawled, clothes in baskets, books in a pile on our reading chair. It's fine, no surprise, it's January. All of the closets are half-cleaned out, the fridge clean but the fridge door isn't, who cares. What I love about this part of winter is the laziness of it all. Quiet nights of reading, playing music and netflix. Happy not to be running into the studio every time I can make a break for it. The studio is also half organized, but I can find what I need in a pinch ( I think.)
And then there are the plans. For lettuce all year round, they say it's easy. Soup & Salsa ingredients, made from the ground up. I think this is the year, no I'm sure of it. This is the year that I will READ the entire book and not just look at the pictures. This is the year that the soil has been amended enough to produce something, we can take to the table besides garlic.
One great tip I read, see I'm doing it already, is to plant your squash seeds rite into your compost pile! Here are the books I'm looking at... I mean reading rite now:
Organic Kitchen Gardens, 12 Month Gardener, Wisconsin Garden Guide, The Encyclopedia of County Living and Illustrated Encyclopedia of Herbs and The Farmer's Wife Guide to fabulous fruits & berries. Cross your fingers for me. Have any favorite seed varieties??
