photo…this blog will be un-manned on weekends. Un-womanned? You all KNOW what I mean, I refuse to start grappling with pronouns at my age, ok? Spring is not here, but the weeds will start growing again within two weeks. So, I must hie forth when I have morale, and sometimes physical support ON weekends, to battle the little green growing demons.

I must peruse seed catalogues, too. And cover the raised beds with plastic to warm them up FOR seeding. So, hey, bankers’ hours for my bitch-fests from now on! You may sign with relief now…

Ooops…yes, the Food Blogging Project posts WILL appear on Saturdays…canned the night before, alas.

    Spring? What is this spring, you speak of? Colorado winters last from October to late May at a minimum. *sigh*

    But I’m dreaming of a greenhouse….

    • We keep talking greenhouse since we are near enough the mountain that our first frosts can be in September and the last ones in May. My raised beds are mini-Greenhouses until the plastic hoods wear out…so I have a few years to decide…

    *jealous* of your early spring. I ordered my seed from rareseeds.com to try that instead of GMO plants this year.

    • Oh, trust me, nothing will survive the frosts till after May 1st if not later. But weeds grow from Feb onward, and I must till and till again to clear the garden and expose roots to frosts. And try to warm the earth enough that May plantings come up sometime before JUNE!

        I hear you. No tilling while the ground is frozen here and then we have to get past the 3 Icemen of May before putting a plant in. Last year the 3rd one was on May 31st, just because he could be. But, that’s how it goes here. 🙂

      • Our spring was similar last year…only stuff under heavy plastic survived to thrive. The ground freezes infrequently and for short periods, so I can till and attempt to kill weeds in between.

    Okay, I can live with that, but are you going to give up news on the weekends? I think you should and that it would make your time with seed catalogues and green demons, and then the planting and such more enjoyable.
    I like the food blogging, by the way, and I have the Vegetarian Epicures 1 and 2 and Nourishing Traditions. I use the recipes in NT and I use it as a reference book, but I find her a bit strident in her opinions too.

    • Yes, going to ignore news on weekends, too! Yes, in NT….strident and more so later in the book. As you say, I find it an occasionally useful reference. Eventually, I will “gut” the relevant portions onto my i-pad compendium and just be done with the treeware strident bits.

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
