- The composts are starting to get my attention, now that the weather is slowly warming up. It rained most of last week, on and off throughout the days, so I left the compost lids off to catch all of the free water. Why run the garden hose, which isn't out of the shed yet, when natures waters things for free?
- The rhubarb is popping through the earth. An annual that I have to pick my brain to figure out what to do with the abundance. I still have chutney that I made last summer, from the second cutting. The first cutting was given to our next door neighbour. What else can I do with rhubarb, that doesn't involve pie? Jam maybe? I hate to let it go to waste. Food is food.
- I need to get a move on the herbs, tomatoes, peas, greens and whatever else I can think of. So much more economical then buying from the store and I know, for the most part, what is in the soil, water, etc.
Anyone else composting or gardening this spring and summer?
- Update on Rehtaeh Parsons case. An independent inquiry will now occur, by the office of the Premier (Darrell Dexter) of Nova Scotia. I was never big on signing petitions until a few years ago, but I like to think that they do help. My original blog post.
