Remember ever being bored…

I can not rack my brain to retrieve even a slight, faint memory of what boredom is? I am not sure. I secretly think that if I didn’t have to eat and sleep, I could get so much more accomplished, but thankfully that is not possible and those breaks for nourishment and sleep are much…

Updates on a Winter Garden

This is my first try at winter gardening. So far, it isn’t by any means feeding us, but is a hobby that reminds me of how scary it would be if I was responsible for actually growing all our food. Here is my one cabbage. In the fall, I planted lettuce around it. Now it…
