I've been busy planning my garden and price comparing on lumber, soil, and landscaping fabric (Oh, yeah. And working). I knew this would be a lot of work, but this is ridiculous! Mike has cut most of the lumber. The soil/manure mixture will be delivered Friday. The crew is coming on Saturday. Today I finished with the purchases and moved on to the things I've been
neglecting. Like community ed. class proposals, cleaning up this messy house, taking a shower, putting away my winter clothes (it was over 90 degrees!) and finally, blogging.
You haven't missed much in the way of cooking because it's been a pretty standard diet of pasta and tofu, rice and tofu, rice and cabbage around here these days. Oh, wait. I did make some potato salad and pinto beans. That's it for creativity, though.
I just got finished with everything and cooked up some eggplant and home-canned tomatoes over quinoa a few minutes ago.
I used red chiles, cumin, and coriander to spice it up. Yum! I ended up adding some soy yogurt raita after my first helping because it needed a little something extra.
I promise lots of garden-in-progress pictures soon!
