Sorry for the long hiatus.Â I’ve been a bum.Â Here’s some of what has been happening in our lives….
#1 – I am so excited! We planted our first garden! We started it about a month ago, and I’ve already eaten my first salad out of it. It was delicious!Â I can’t wait for summer when it is all big and beautiful!
#2 – I’m starting to read a new book called Food Not Lawns, and I am hoping to write about it. I was recently introduced to this movement by the Boulder Community Roots Farm, who sells at the Boulder Farmer’s Market. You can read an article about them here at Peaksoil. Basically they are a CSA that uses city plots (mostly front yards) to grow their organic produce. Its a great use of space, and I think it is an awesome way to really put the C in CSA. They don’t have any shares left for this year, otherwise I would’ve signed up. This is just the kind of program that I want to support with my food dollars!
I’ve also been reading another local foodie blog – LoveLandLocal. I thought that I was doing a good job at buying local, but is really inspiring me to push myself a bit farther.
#3 – And, for totally random fun, I’ve also been dabbling in hooping. I made my own hoop and I’ve been practicing at home. I am having a blast learning new tricks and watching on youtube. This is my current favorite video…
Anyways, I can’t spin it on my shoulder blade or anything, but I impress my kids, lol.
Well, I hope to start blogging about Food Not Lawns in the next few days. See ya soon!
I’m so jealous. I wasn’t sure if we were going to stay here another year. So, I didn’t start a garden. Now I wish I had. The boys help in our neighbors garden, but it’s not the same. I think we might still have time for some flowers. But, I think food is out of the question.
