I keep thinking we'd all feel a little saner if we produced a little more of our own food. You're never gong to get the supermarkets out of your life, but I've been looking at my own scrubby little quarter acre of God's green earth and wondering why I don't grow a little bit more to eat on it, maybe have a few chickens walking around. And why not a dairy goat? Well, for one thing, chickens are completely illegal where I live. So is hanging your clothes out to dry, but that's another story. One thing at a time.
The thaw is coming soon and it's time to start thinking about what to plant and how to get a little bit more out of our New England soil. The state's organic farmers are thinking about the same thing. What kind of spring is it going to be. How green is your thumb? Do you feel like doing a little more this year -- maybe with a little less of the chemicals. That's what we're talkin about today.
