What a busy fall....
I just plain got too busy to post (and at times lazy, and other times too sick, can we say WOW wasn't that flu a DOOZY!). Canning, canning, canning, and drying and freezing, not to mention homeschooling and finishing my Community Library Training Program courses. I'm glad I found the photo daughter#2 took of the canning room, she wanted a visual to explain to her new big city school friends how strange her family/parents were. SCORE! Seems our Hummerless lifestyle is just plain odd, add our gardening, baking bread etc. and, 'wow, poor Jane, her folks are nuts.' is the verdict.
I had a few projects I should post about and I should direct your attention over to the blog about my new venture. All in good time ;o)
So for a visual of what's new here at the Urban Trowel is the addition of the Urban TRACTOR!!! Not a sight seen in many suburbs LOL! Dh's market garden has just gotten to the point where it is nuts trying to borrow a tractor every time he needs to use one. This is a big step on our way back to official farming.
I think he shouldn't store it at the garden, I think we need to build a carport for it here at the house. I think I need to starting humming 'She thinks my tractor's sexy' again ;-) Cause I forgot how much I love being married to a farmer. (I like the song, it's soooo cheezy; HATE the video though) Excuse me ... I need to go wash my eyeballs with bleach ~ YECH!
Note to any husbands out there DO NOT tell your wife you bought a tractor without talking to her; especially when she is PMSing. It doesn't go over well at all, trust me on this one. Luckily I get over things quickly. YMMV.
