It’s barely even the beginning of winter and the catalogs are coming out for gardening. We really need to decide now if were going to attempt to start from seeds, or if we’re going to chance waiting for spring and hope that the local nurseries have all of the vegetables that we’re looking for. We actually need to sit down this weekend, decide which veggies we’ll raise, map out the garden, and put our orders in. I think that we may get some dwarf fruit trees this year. They come in pots and can go out on the patio in warm weather, then come inside during the winter. They actually produce fruits like oranges, lemons, limes, pomegranetes, etc.
As for the rear of our property I think that we will definitely be undergoing a massive cleanup effort in the spring to remove what is currently there, and planting blueberry bushes, grape vines, and transplanting our raspberry & blackberry bushes. This will cover up the view of the ugliness and give us some fruits that we love.
In other news, I need a haircut. I love having short hair except for the fact that it requires so much upkeep. After I get it cut I have about three weeks before I need a trim, and if I go beyond that then I become insane and end up whacking it even shorter than it had been previously.
Chris was so manly last nice I’m surprised he wasn’t grunting or something. He came home from work and had to bring something down to the basement for storage. On his way back up he noticed that the hand rail was loose at the top of the stairs. He scoped out the situation, broke out the tools, took the thing apart, and put it back together in a secure manner. Now the rail is nice and tight to the wall. Best part is, I never even asked him to do it, or complained about it or anything. He did it all on his own. I love that!
Dinner tonight will be lasagna with roasted green beans. I got a few wonderful recipes for variations of roasted green beans and I’ll be trying them out over the next couple of weeks.
