Wolf and I are a little behind in bills this month. This happens every December/January because we have to register our cars in the months we were born. That’s the way they do it in NH and, with our bdays within 30 days of each other, the State takes what little surplus we have. Because we’re behind we haven’t sent in our seed order yet. I really want to get it to High Mowing but I can’t until the cash comes in — hopefully before February.
Regardless, here’s what we plan on ordering. We’re only putting one order in this year. Normally I get stuff from Fedco too but not this year. No particular reason to be honest…I just didn’t.
The biggest issue we’ve had with our garden the last two years is the lack of warmth in the summer. Both 2008 and 2009 brought us wet springs/early summers with cool temps throughout the remainder of the summer so nothing has grown in abundance (except frustration).
A major part of the problem is the tall trees here on Howling Hill. I know I’ve talked about this before (I’m being lazy and not looking up previous posts) so I won’t go into too much detail but I’m not spending $1000 to have trees taken down. Wolf and I really want to move and in order to do so we need to be able to save. To put aside $1000 would be attaining a big goal and I’m not about to spend that money on trees. After all, it’s a 1000 dollars closer to a house on farmland.
