Good morning lovely friends!
Can you believe the holidays are finally over? Back to life, back to reality. A part of me is stoked to get back to eating vegetables and listening to regular music again - yet there is a small section of my little heart soul that mourns the end of twinkle lights, baileys in coffee on a weekday and watching this. Easing my tender heart though is all the left over glitter around the house. Seriously. Regardless of how many times I sweep the floor, vacuum, or scrub, that shit gets in and it never leaves. Kind of like a bad case of house guests. Or herpes. Ew.
So yes - it's back to life. And that means back to blogging and hearing all about your fantastic seasonal & whole food adventures. How are you sourcing your food in the dead of Winter? Do you still get a CSA share? Are there farmer's markets in your area? Are you able to grow kale or brussel sprouts (2 of my favorite Winter veg) on your porch? What are you doing to eat happily right now?
Side question: While we're on the topic - for those of you who experience real Winter (i.e. minus 20 and snow), how do you mange having chickens? I am thinking about getting my little mitts on a couple but am afraid it's impossible in a cold Winter weather climate. Help!
Okay - on with the sharing!
