My Square Foot Garden circa 2009

This will be (I hope) a quick update for this year’s Square Foot Garden. Several Sundays ago, I planted onion sets, basil, and spinach.

The Raw Vegan: Part LXIX, Wrecked!

The Raw Vegan: Part LXVIII, Property Owner

I don’t like the sound of pounding on the door in the middle of the night and the flashing lights, badges and uniforms added to my apprehension. I opened the door a crack and the man asked if I knew the people in the house next door. Yes, that was my in-laws’ home. Why? When […]
