So, tonight I went to the Capital City Organic gardners meeting. Here is their website: http://ccognh.wordpress.com/ From this you might assume that I know something, anything really about gardening. If you assumed this, you would be wrong because I really don't know very little except how to throw some tomatoes in the ground and water them occassionally. My mom laughs at me because every year I create these pretty window boxes in the spring that last about a month because I forget to water them.
However, I am longing for some warm weather and thinking about watching something grow this summer. I am thinking that I would like the kids to be outside in the yard and this can't happen if there isn't a reason for me to be outside too. And tending a garden and watching it grow sounds like a great outside activity. My logic is imbecible, isn't it? So, organic gardening? Hey, at least you don't have to pay for chemicals that we don't have money for! And I can grow all those veggies that I am using for the Moosewood Cookbook.
I can see my mother saying, "we'll see" and shaking her head right now. Listen mom, you can send dad over to help me, all right?
