Yes my little farm has been growing well only 100 more days till everything is grown.  I think I might need to get some bigger pots!! I did not have any celery the other day and some how lost my onion I bought. (It must be the heat) and well I was make red lentil soup.  I needed celery and an onion to go in my mirepoix – for non cooks “Mirepoix is a simple combination of onion, carrot and celery that is used in nearly every traditional French stew and many other dishes.”  Aka the base of my soup veg wise.  So i grabbed a few peices from the celery and a tiny little onion bulb:

While I was waiting on my soup I nibbled on a few pieces of kale, which to my amazement tasted like cabbage. I enjoyed it!

Gardening,Comics, and Blogs!!

Well one of my real life friends and fellow blogger has a GREAT new site The Whole Style Network (WSN).  Anything neat, neato, and otherwise you will find with her!! E, has an amazing personal style as well as she is just AWESOME (and my BFF – hadn’t blogged on that yet!

Although when I was reading my feeder with her posts one caught my eye!  Well as some know I have a green thumb and well look what the WSN found: Repurposed Comics Make Great Planters

Speaking of seedlings… I do not think I had mentioned I have started a little herb garden… Well Seedlings so far.  I started about 2 weeks ago.  I went to Crappy Tire (as the family calls it) and purchased a flat with the little soil pods and seeds: Basil, Chives and Rosemary.  The 3 Herbs I LOVE to cook with all year round!


Urban Chicken Farm

So I am reading “Made from Scratch” and in the first chapter I got a hair brained idea!  How cool would it be to have a chicken coop in your backyard.  According to the author of the book, she has 3 hens who manage to lay 18 eggs per week!  That is a heck of a lot of eggs.  Just think that is a savings of about $3.00/shopping trip dependant on how much you east eggs.

There are some links and information about it, yet I am going to post about it tomorrow! I want to do some more research!  I would like to look into starting a chicken coop!!  I might pose this to my mother she lives out in the country (well in a town located in the middle of the country) and I think i might be able to sway her to the idea of this!  Plus she has friends who have a farm so it might not be to hard to get the ball rolling.

Here are some of the links I found so far:
