The idiot garden is off and running. I have potatoes in my trashcan, yellow onions and garlic in my bathtub, onions, mesculin, 2 types of chard, shallots, and tomatoes in my bag garden. I have lettuce in my lettuce table, duh, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and tomatoes in my idiot tubs. I have a 6x8' raised bed planted with a 3 sisters garden, corn, squash or pumpkin, and beans. Seeds are sprouting, transplants are flourishing, we will be eating healthy and local in no time.
The wife is off for 9 straight days, it will be great! We are going to cook good meals, try some new recipes, play with our kitchen set. She is going to clean one room each day, then move onto the next. I'd help her, but I have a bad back and MS, so you know. I'd love to have her home all the time, trying to talk her into moving up to the mountains, to Cumberland, but she is slow to make change. I told her we could move downtown, open a tea room, and live happily ever after. For now, I'll settle for 9 straight days off.
