Where does the time go?

Day after Christmas and Rita and I had to get some fresh air so we pulled the big sled out in the woods with the Kubota and cut some oak spikes (spikes are standing dead oak that is bone dry). Dry oak is about as good as it gets for heat content for a wood fire. We are enjoying the results of that foray this evening with a roaring fire on a chilly winter eve. I have just settled in front of the computer after a excellent beef roast dinner with all home grown veggies. Potatoes, corn and green beans all grown in the garden that I was preparing to plant in my last post to this blog, last April. That is why I am just amazed at the speed of time this past year.
So it is never to early to plan the next gardening season even if there is a foot of snow on the ground and it is only 20 degrees F here in central Michigan. Who knows, I just might get a few more post on my blog this year ;-)

Yes, I remember the after Christmas garden planning. What fun to imagine all those lovely green, growing things in the midst of winter! I don't have a garden space now. Happy planning!

About Me
Retired central Michigan electrician that likes to cook, hunt, fish, fly, photograph and garden. I have raised four children and two wives. They all have college educations and are doing well as are my five Grandbabies and that is a good thing!
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking with fresh and natural. As an example: one of my most memerable meals was on a April fishing trip on the Stergeon River in Michigans Upper pennisula. My brother and I both had our limit of brookies so we decided to walk back to the camper through the woods rather than follow the river ( much shorter)and we were blessed with a nice find of Morel mushrooms. Well, let me tell you, if there is a better breakfast than fresh brooktrout, morel mushrooms and eggs I would like to know what it would be. I think breathing that fresh nortern air might have something to do with it also!
