Well, let's see if I can do a better job of keeping up with this blog, this month. I really miss posting, because it's kind of my journal, and a bit of farm register. See, when I post that Josie kindled, it's kind of to keep you up to date, but there is also the fact that I can search my blog for Josie and figure out how old the three chubby bunnies are...They were born in October, or was it November, see, now I'm not sure. I should have written it down. So, anyway, I need to keep up with blogging. I'm starting by showing you how my winter growing season is going...
I actually found this tray on my back deck. I forgot about them. They were intended to be micro greens, and well, I guess they still are. The peas tendrils are yummy and crisp despite being found in an icy tray of dirt. This is not really the extent of my winter growing, but I did start everything too late, so while I have some lovely baby tat soi, my leeks look great, the swiss chard is holding it's own, I also have beets, carrots and turnips that are in the baby greens state, and not likely to change until Spring. Oh, well. Maybe next year I'll plan my garden space better, so I can plant my winter crops in August, as I should have.
I have been having a lot of fun back at the torch. I should do a full studio post for those of you who have no idea what lampworking is. Basically, you take an oxygen/propane mix torch, that gets hot enough to melt glass, and then, well, you melt glass. It's very fun, and I can't believe I have taken so much time away from it. I'm happy to be back, and the buttons I'm making, even "Wow" me, sometimes!
The two single buttons are at Spinning Yarns in Dover, NH...well, they were, unless they've sold. The middle set of orange are going to be put on a sweater for me! Well, look for a studio tour soon.
