At least in the realm of the internet. Sometimes we all need a break to keep up with our online duties (right, duties my ass, this is a privelege that I love!)
Anyhow, as stated earlier here this blog will be updated much more often this winter and defintely next spring. I have made my self a solemn promise to better document my means, methods, and ways in all of my ventures, I think it is important both for myself and for those who like to read gardening blogs on rainy days, of course there is the off chance that someone who can ignore my constant lack of grammatical skills and misspellings might be able to glean something useful from what I write, or at least find my work interesting; one can hope.
The elections were today, as Forrest Gump would say; "That's all I've got to say about that." I'm out regardless of outcome.
You might notice that there will be a lot of new links to other blogs and sites of interest around the net on the right side of your screen, please feel free to check those out, I highly encourage it. Many of the links are to blogs owned by members of our message boards at http://alanbishop.proboards60.com When I talked to my good friend Michael the other day we both agreed, it seems like it is finally taking off and reaching critical mass and it looks as though we are creating a terrific alternative to the everyday gardening web-sites. I love that there is very little drama there and everyone can behave as an adult, it makes moderation very easy.
Hey, don't forget that if you live around Washington County Indiana you can stop by or call the farm anytime and order fresh winter produce all through those dreary cold, dark, damp months, something about eating greens, tomatoes, and strawberries in the winter just makes it seem like the sun shines a little more. 1-812-967-2073 or firstname.lastname@example.org (scroll down for more information) Please pass this info on to local residents.
I'm planning on doing a bit of writing once this last bit of Indian Summer is over (freaking 70 degrees in Southern Indian in November is awesome), among the topics I will cover are "Composting as Alchemy 101", Jeffersonian Alpine Strawberries, Experiments in Fowl Husbandry and many more!
Don't forget, you can still request our unique Hip-Gnosis Seed Development seeds, just scroll down a few posts and you will see the offers. I'll soon be doing some work to http://hipgnosisseed.wikispaces.com including adding my archived articles along with a collection of articles that I have written for the Lost River Market and Deli over the past year, and other relevant information (like a complete seed list, descriptions, and pictures).
Damn it man! Sometimes I'm just lazy!
