I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I did, a wonderful time with family. I was also able to spend time with high school friends I have not seen in a long time. I was fun to chat and catch up. As with so many of my conversations, food quickly became a topic of conversation.
One friend is a chef. We talked a great deal about creating good food. I was really impressed by her love of food and her passion for creating good food. It was so fun for me.
Rob and I also talked about food. He wanted to make sure I was not promoting vegetarianism as the best life choice. I do admit being a vegetarian is probably very healthy, but I not a choice I can make now. I hope you find this blog a bit of inspiration to grow something for yourself. If you do not grow your own food I know you will find homegrown food the best tasting.
I returned to the Micro Farm on Friday with about twelve inches of snow. On Saturday we received another six inches of snow.
I need to get out there and uncover the cold-frames. I have been shoveling so much I have not been able to get out there. Even the cold-frame on the back porch is almost covered up.
The cold weather arrived while were traveling for Christmas. I should have put straw down over my strawberries and garlic. I hope to pick up a bale if this snow melts to fast. If this good blanket of snow lasts I think the crops will be ok.
As the New Year arrives I start thinking about goals and plans for the next year. This week I hope to put my garden plan and goals together. I hope you plan to grow something this year.
Enjoy this season, learn from last season, and look forward to next season.
