I don't want anymore snow! Waaaaaa!(Now imagine me with my head tilted back with mouth open wide, tears running down my face.) We got 5 to 6 inches this weekend. I know, it's not the 2 ft that they had in DC, or the 13 to 18 inches that other people have gotten, but, dang it, I'm tired of snow! They are predicting snow all week. Now they are adding cold temps and wind. Enough already! I think I'm going crazy here!
I think I'm just torturing myself though. I keep looking at seed catalogs and wondering what kind of new things I'm going to plant this year. One thing I'm going to plant that I have never planted are peas. I like peas. Hubby doesn't.(He'll get over it.) I thought about planting butternut squash. I love butternut squash soup. Hubby doesn't.(Once again, he'll get over it.) I'm going to plant zucchini and summer squash again this year. I didn't get enough last year. I cut it up into little slices and freeze it for later in the winter.(WAAAAA winter!)
I'm also reading the book the book Animal,Vegetable,Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver.(More tortur) If you haven't read it, you need to go out(that's if you can get out of your driveway.) and get it. It is so good. It tells about a family who is trying to eat locally for one whole year. It will open your eyes to how the food business is run. Plus it will make you want to get out in your garden. (But ooooohhhh no, we have snoooooowwww!)
This winter(if you couldn't already tell) is getting on my nerves. Normally I like winter. You don't have to worry about sweating. You don't have to worry about being hot. You don't have to worry about looking like a freak if you put on shorts. There are no mosquitoes in the winter. But this year, I would take a dozen mosquitoe bites while looking freaky in my shorts, just to be able to sit out in the sun, watching my garden grow. I can't wait!!!!!!!!
Now remind me of this little rant when I'm complaining about how busy and hot I am in the summer. lol
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, winter hater(for now)
