  • It seems we are in the middle of yet another “situation,” as my husband calls it, served up by Mother Nature.  At present, we are right in the middle of the mess out at the farm.  No electricity, no phone line, no heat and no water. 

    We can manage well enough inside with the fireplace, kerosene heater, camp stove, down comforter and strategic water rationing (with supplements brought in from town).  Outside is a different story. 

    The ice storm and snow have left a path of downed trees and limbs.

  • One of the best things about January is all the good catalogs that come in the mail.  It is much easier to believe that spring will come again when you have a stack of catalogs that show glossy pictures of fruits, vegetables and flowers.  The extra time spent indoors by the fire also allows us to spend some time plotting and planning what we want to add to the garden in 2009.

    When it comes to the home orchard or berry patch planning is indeed a good thing.
