Holiday Festivities

I felt the need for 2 holiday posts because I am aware that many find my gardening just too weird and geeky.  Here's what else went on this weekend.

First, a brick (literally a brick) of hops showed up at our house.
In case you are wondering, this IS legal and is for some upcoming batches of homebrew.
The beer that we started last week was moved into secondary fermentation.  Carson wanted to help.
C got a sweet Wagon on Christmas Day (Notice its still dark out, that a boy!)
I know, he still looks asleep.  After breakfast we took it for a spin.
Then Sunday it snowed.

You already know how much we all like snow.

PS We even had a gingerbread house....
Awww a family of 3 with a little house and a garden, kind of like us.

Happy holidays Love, J, T, And C

I love those wagons, and beer... add them together for real fun:)

Winter, finally (and seriously)

I planned to start this blog last spring as my garden flew into action, but then got into the actual work of gardening and abandoned the task. However, today its winter, really winter. I'm wearing long underwear and sitting under a blanket and I'm still cold.
Today is the shortest day of the year so from here on in it gets better. I look forward to longer days, that's for sure. But I'll also tuck in and enjoy winter's freeze and snow, it does mean skiing after all. Maybe more importantly is the snow pack - without snow there isn't water for the West.
The end of the year and the solstice are a good time to think back on the last 365. I have no reason to complain and feel really lucky about the last year and really hopeful about the year to come.
