Well, this is the week that I scheduled to start some of my seeds, and I am woefully unprepared. I don't even have my lights up or anything!
Note to self: get on it, girl!!!
I received a fabulous package in the mail yesterday containing the books "The Four Season Harvest" and "Root Cellaring". I am so excited to read them!!!! I have so many dreams of fabulously productive veggie gardens, of enchanting floral gardens, of pantries full of home canned goodness, of root cellars brimming with bins of home grown food.
I dream of a life where I can provide healthy and tasty food for my family, and they actually eat it.
See, that is the rub. Mr. Barefoot likes salads, but he doesn't eat them often. Big Sprout is picky about what veggies she will eat (though I have noticed that home grown is much preferable to store bought in her mind). Little Sprout is the only one who seems to enjoy whatever I put in front of her, and I harbor no illusions that will continue for the rest of her life. She is just too young to care one way or the other if she is eating broccoli.
I am determined to keep putting healthy meals in front of my family, and to keep reducing the amount of junk that is allowed in the house.
Maybe someday I will get my way...
