::I will travel great distances to obtain good organic scratch and feed for our chickens. Our local source has run dry, so the kids and I hit the road yesterday and drove over 200 miles round trip to the manufacturer of our favorite chicken feed. This is highly unusual behavior for me - I avoid driving whenever possible. I must really love my feathered friends.::
::The food we don't mean to grow might just be the food we grow best. This lovely squash is thriving in our makeshift compost pile. I'm thinking that perhaps I should just fill all of our raised beds with our kitchen compost and see what happens.::
::Certain members of my family have decided to only eat seeded watermelon. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find an old fashioned watermelon these days? Most grocery stores around here only carry seedless watermelons or personal sized watermelons. Thank goodness for a local family farm that still grows a few good watermelons. We'll definitely throw these seeds in our compost garden.::
::Don't judge a yarn by it's appearance in skein form. We inherited what I considered some of the ugliest yarn I'd ever seen, but my mind was changed when I saw the finger knit I-cord Avery made. I'll never look at a multi-colored skein of yarn with disdain again.::
::I love our neighborhood high school track at dusk, and I might not hate running as much as I thought I did. OK, I can't actually run, but I can jog. The track, in the dark, is a lovely place to practice something at which I'm not very good, while discovering that maybe I can enjoy something that doesn't come naturally to me.::
I hope your weekend is full of discoveries. If you have a chance, take some time discover The Moth. It's been one of my best discoveries this week.
