Things seem to be moving a little slower around here lately. Between having another little person to care for and so much of what I'm doing, being "more of the same"... Chicken still sitting on eggs, Garden still getting planted, seedlings still growing on the plant stands, and not a lot of knitting, crafting, cooking, outing time, I'm wondering if I'm boring you. I haven't had many comments lately so sometimes I wonder if I'm just typing to myself.
I guess, if I am, that's fine, since I really like writing daily. I think it's a good exercise for the mind, as well as being such a nice reminder of my days. They seem to go so fast, and run into each other, that it's nice to remember what the days have really been like and what I've done to fill them.
So, if you're out there, I'd love to hear it. Maybe tell me what you like the best of the kinds of things I post. I post a lot of various things, crafting, gardening, eating local, political concerns (especially concerning food), family life/babies, local farm news, poultry...lots of different things...this is what the "blog books" say not to do. They say stick to one thing or a couple things so your readers want to hear everything, instead of coming and finding stuff they don't care about...hmmm. That's not how I read. I love blogs with a nice variety, especially when the variety is spread between things I'm jazzed about, and things I'm unfamiliar with. I like to widen my horizons, so to speak.
Okay, so go ahead, please tell me what you like to read about here.
I'll leave you with what I did today...planted beets and lettuce between the lovely garlic rows. We are trying to use the space more efficiently this year, as we want so much more from our garden, and we can't expand it...it's the whole front yard already. So we are putting smallish things in between other smallish things to maximize the space. We are starting to put the mulch hay down, which you can see on the left. We are going to mulch everything, as the plants come up...and feed the inevitable slugs to the chickens. They will be loving us, and in turn giving us fabulously rich, protein laden eggs!
