As you can see, I haven’t really made much progress on my baby kicking bag since the last time i hopped on for Ginny’s Yarn Along. But, I have been snatching up smallish bits of time here and there to knit a few rows at a time. Honestly, this is the perfect knitting project for me right now. Now that i have made it past that mini cable waist band, I don’t need to keep track of any rows, or stitches, and can just leave off wherever and whenever I need to. Although, I do have to say that it’s precisely that mini cable waist band that makes me LOVE and enjoy this knit so much! BUT, since life is so busy with many many other things right now, I am happy to be in the “mindless” portion of it…for now.
As for reading…still kinda lagging in that department too, however, am completely THRILLED that Jason found The Garden Primer yesterday amidst our boxes! I have been looking for it since before we moved. I really thought I put all of our gardening/farming books together so they would be easily accessible to dig out on demand, however, my most prized gardening book, The Garden Primer was no where to be found. Jason will attest that it just goes to show how well I look for things, when they are right there under my nose, but I also know that goes for him as well, which I *think* he knows as well. Anyways, I’m glad to have it back by our side regardless of where it was hiding.
The Garden Primer was actually one of the very first gardening books I bought. It is packed full of so much wonderful and helpful knowledge including everything from planting and choosing perennial garden flowers and arrangements to each and every fruit and vegetable you could even want to grow. However, as cheesy as it might sound, I think when I found out that Barbara Damrosch was married to Elliot Coleman, as in the author of Four-Season Harvest it just made me giddy. Those two make a pretty informative sustainable gardening duo, that’s for sure! One that I would love to meet someday.
