uh, hi everybody who still reads this.
i've been both busy and depressed at the same time. i mean, basically hiding in my new house avoiding human contact but starting a bunch of projects.
here is my gorgeous kitchen:
and here are a lot of things sprouting:
basil, broccoli, lettuce, eggplant, watermelon, snap peas, red chard, zinnias, sunflowers, morning glories, and i'm not sure what else.
i'm starting two kinds of compost bins, a worm bin and a big old chickenwire compost bin that i'll have to get some leaves or hay for.
my backyard is pretty much a big pit of rocks and broken glass with some lead and mercury filled dirt in it. but we're picking out the glass and rocks, building raised beds, getting less polluted dirt, planting grass, hanging a hammock, and planting veggies and flowers. all that good stuff.
i started some more kimchee, with apples this time. there's a dumpling restaurant, i think on broome street near allen, that has a kimchee sandwich with apples in it. yum. anyway, seems like a good idea.
i'm learning how to use a circular saw and a drill. i already knew how to use the drill, but i keep breaking drill bits. also, it's annoying but obvious that power tools were built for man hands, and are harder to use when you have small lady hands.
other projects will include making soap, and, i dunno, outdoor stuff.
maybe kate has something to say about gravy?
