Well, nothing major on the home front. Went for a walk after watering the garden. I left the beans soaking overnight, they had prune fingers, hehe. I didn't mean to leave them much longer than an hour, I also forgot to take out the garbage... It was a late night last night.
I watched the latest GardenGirlTV videos. If you aren't addicted to them and check back regularly, I suggest you click the link to the right and check out her stuff. She's not only huge into urban suststainable living, but she's a film producer so her video snipits are phenomonal. Hehe, no cameraphone utube videos there.
Anyway, her latest video is about gardening with kids. I am trying to get my kids actively involved with our garden but with all the stuff to do in the back yard, they're less interested in the garden right now. I wish the carrots would grow faster so my eldest could harvest one.
I've also have been reading the journals over at PathtoFreedom.com. One of their posts is all about eating locally. Frankly we drink smoothies 4 or 5 times a week and one of the must-have ingredients are bananas. I am doing my best to grow my own veggies in my garden, but our climate sucks and I can't grow things fast enough to eat them, other than cool-weather crops like greens. There are only so many salads you can eat and lately after I eat a huge salad from my garden I'm still hungry. Grrr, things have got to grow fast. Please? hehe
So I'm nowhere near a 100 foot diet, or even a 50 or 100 mile diet. Costco is still our friend and I don't see that changing. So many posters on their site are all deep into the urban homesteading. Its awesome, but I'll be happy if I can eat 50% of our produce from our garden. That's a big hill to climb with all the smoothies we make.
Enjoy your garden!
