Boy have I neglected this place. Sorry...things all went downhill fast last year.
But it's a New Year and I have started partcicipating in a new challenge to keep me busy! It's called Art Journal Everyday and it's over at this link http://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/art-j.html
So, that should kick start things.
Projects this year... I want to start home brewing. As soon as I get money for the start kit and equipment I am going to jump right in.
My landlord razed my garden to bare earth last summer. We have two front yards, one that I was working in and one on the other side of the duplex. That side got crazy weedy. I was clearing my weeds out as best I could. Someone in the neighborhood complained so i came home from work one day to find everything GONE. 7 year old lavender? Gone! I had finally gotten it to overwinter well too. 7 year old sage? Gone! Well established worm bin, with about 10 pounds of compost ready to harvest? GONE!
Needless to say I cried. But this year I am building a raised bed. So I'll get going on the garden wagon soon. I am going to have to start scouring freecycle and The Urban Homestead league to find new herb plants, but that will come.
So.... I can't promise I will post every week, or even every day. But I'll be here more often.
