Well, Christmas is past (unless you celebrate Orthodox Christmas – then it’s 3more days!), the new year upon us and I’m chugging away. The Christmas break was nice and relaxing – a time for fellowship with family, worship at church, and work on a new class at church. That’s all for that now.
I did enjoy some nice coffee while off. The Congo Kivu, with a good rest, is some nice coffee. Any earlier, it was too funky and earthy. Not the good, Sumatran earthy, but more like you face planted in some moss. Nice stuff.
I also did some reading, namely in the book “Square Foot Gardening.” It’s really piqued my interest as we plan our garden for this year. We started with raised beds last year, so we’ll easily adapt those to the square foot method. And that method, it’s not some cultish practice of gardening, it’s maximizing diversity and harvest on a minimum of land to reduce soil wearing and wasting of plants and seeds. So, we’ll see how it works for us. The best part is that it should be much less work than a conventional garden. Looking forward.
Solo Deo Gloria,
