Ok, so it's March in Wisconsin. So what's a cheerful agrarian do in the middle of winter? I cook! I sew! I homeschool 5 adorable munchkins! And, of course, I read farming books (currently The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer by Joel Salatin)!

I also move my garden inside (or at least a small part of it). I have my six pots of herbs on the kitchen windowsill (parsley, rosemary, garlic, oregano, chives, and a (currently dead) :( thyme). Also an 8x8 glass pan with lettuce (although I think it's too shallow; it's pretty root-bound already). Downstairs I have an Earthbox with more chives, lettuce, and some newly-planted onion seeds. And three bags of organic potatoes that started to sprout before I could use them, resting peacefully in the fridge, waiting for the ground to thaw.

So, I probably won't have many gardening posts for a bit yet; I'll have to keep you entertained with tales of the reason I garden - yummy food! :)
