Sheep-ish January

   Not my sheep, someone else's. I'm heading north for a couple of weeks to care-take. I'll be sheep-whispering and frolicking in the snow with a pack of domesticated dogs. As I pack up, the "south" is shoveling out from 5 inches of snow. All the kids have a snow day. (I'm still shaking off the shock that 4 or 5 inches shuts this place down.)  However, it makes for a beautiful scene. 

   I'm taking my cross-country skiis, lots of books, 4 or 5 knitting projects, and of course, my Fedco seed catalog.

   I'm going to start with Fedco, make a list, and try to get plenty of overlapping veggies for the year. My goal is to get as close as I can to growing all of my own produce this year. Fedco is in Maine, so I'm on the lookout for a more Mid-westerly seed source. I do love Fedco and their excellent catalog, so it should get me off to an inspired start.

   Oh, and I'm taking Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan for more gardening inspiration. Time to pack!
