Why the Low-Content Blog?

Sharon May 29th, 2009

Excuses, excuses – that’s all I’ve got for y’all.  First, there’s spring planting.  You know, those days when you fall asleep as soon as you lie down, then get up and stick more things into the ground over and over and over….  I often have some of my best ideas while I’m out planting.  Unfortunately, by the next morning, I’ve forgotten them all.

Second, this past couple of weeks has been one of an unusual degree of running around.  First, Edson of Hen and Harvest and www.greenbluebrown.blogspot.com and his family came a’visiting.  We stayed up late drinking beer, entertained the kids and tooled around a bit to see the local sites.  Then they left, and Larry and Gail, who I met at Community Solutions a few years ago came a’visiting.  Both were really fun, but left little time for the blog.  We took Larry and Gail to the first Albany Permaculture Guild Meeting (they’re going to do Chicken Coop Raisings – how cool is that?) to hear Larry Santoyo talk permaculture and beer (I got to hang out with Larry and Toby Hemenway last year in the Catskills, which was excellent!). 

Then, after everyone left, we justified a day of just plain goofing off (it was raining, ok ;-) ?)to hang out with Larry and other cool people yesterday, and then spent the afternoon roaming Albany, visiting playgrounds in the rain, and eating non-local middle eastern food.  So I’ve barely touched the computer.  Now, the planting is calling me again….and I can barely hear the ‘puter over it ;-) .  Oh, and Shabbos is coming, and Shavuot, and baseball…all these excuses to goof off.

 Or, maybe it is all a lie.  Maybe I’m just quiet because of my fear of exposure.  Edson, in gratitude for the meals of roasted penguin (I should have told him it was Muscovy….how late we learn) we cooked for him, has taken it on himself to expose me for the fraud I am.  They say the truth shall set you free, right ;-) .

 More coming, eventually…

    Thought you might find this article on vertical farming interesting … at least insomuch as I’m sure you’d disagree with various premises! :)

    Speaking of the truth, as I scrolled down to this entry, my eye was caughter by the line “our demonic heritage.” Imagaine my disapointment when I went back up and saw what was really there.

    Well, it wouldn’t have been nearly as interesting to say, “yeah, it’s pretty much just like she describes it on her blog…”

    I don’t know — visions of free-range males peeing with wild abandon has a certain interest and (dare I say) yuck factor.

    T, that article epitomizes the yuck factor! I much prefer MEA’s “free-range males peeing with wild abandon”!! Sharon, glad you got some time-off for good behavior . . . you’ve certainly earned it.:)

    Meat penguins! Really, Sharon, I’m surprised at you. You usually do your homework better. The real market for penguin products is in the bongs carved from the long bills on the specially bred bonguins. Vastly better income generated that way.
