I'm no longer upset about the lack of ability of getting to my fall/winter garden. I haven't done the official survey yet, but last weekend I did check out how much sun the garden plot gets throughout the day in the dead of winter.
I may still be able to get by with an early fall garden, but a winter one is right out the door. Ah well.
Speaking of, the garden plot (and any food growing outside of the plot) is now called: Valley Forge Farm. Sure, it is only going to be (at most) about 200 square feet (until I get a patch at the P-patch and then it will be a whopping 300 square feet)--but I want to be a farmer, dagnabit, and so I'm gonna be and you can't stop me.
If you get the reference to the farm, I'll give you...uh, a "high five". While the idea for the name had nothing to do with the total lack of sun for a winter garden, that I do not have sun and therefore cannot grow plants...it makes a tidy little hint
So, since I'm still dealing with giant holes in the ground and it is too cold to go outside to even build the raised beds--I'm doing the other hausfrau thing I love to do: cook.
Just picked up "660 Curries" from the library and I am on a mission to make at least 20 of them before I have to return the book. I'll once again see if I can get off a decent food photo so I can document something here besides text.
I had a lot more to say, but have seemed to have forgotten where I wanted to go with all of this. So...yeah.
