whew! not easy coming up with good stuff today- not much good happening in america or the world right now. but i will refocus my direction and look for the good stuff in spite of the rightwing and media and the crazy secessionists in tex-ass :)
it is supposed to be warm here in upstate new york today- the sun is shining and it is a bit warmer. there are movements afoot throughout the country to grow your own food- and co-op farms to grow organic meats and dairy products- so perhaps some will eat better- and eat real foods for the first time. there isn't anything much better than picking a sun ripened tomato or green bean and eating that first bite. raw. nope. except maybe a good piece of chocolate. i ordered some homegrown chickens and a turkey- hubby is a carnivore of the first order and i will need to wean him down. so, eating real chicken for the first time in decades- will be a real treat.
of course, the downside is i have to wait. yep. real food takes longer than a trip to the grocery store to appear. the chickens i ordered- and the turkey and the pig- are all chicks and piglet at this time. so, a bit of planning and preparation and waiting will go into it this season. after that, shouldn't be a gap in food. today, i have plans to dig up the garden bed at the fam's and work compost into it. i will plant in a week or so after i harden off the seedlings i started. i can feel the sun on my back and the dirt in my fingernails now :)
for all of the bad stuff out there- i know that there are folks fighting against it. unlike peggy noonan, we have to face the ugliest of uglies and meet them head on. if we face our worst fears, we generally find out that they are not as insurmountable as they first appear. i don't want 'mysterious'- i want the truth. and i want to right wrongs. can't do that if you bury you head in the sand-- or organic garden.
'only the good fridays' started over at shelly's- take a peek over there- and thornie's. she usually has a friday post up too. please feel free to jump into the meme and feel free to put your link here in the comments- i'll link it in the post and give ya some technorati bumps if i can :)
