Thursday garden update

3 Weeks 'till school is over. Its been a busy semester back. Im in the process of trying to transfer to Stony Brook so I can focus more on Asian Studies and much less on Spanish. My heart is all for Japan. I really need to get back there very soon. It's been a year, and I'm soo homesick!

Matt and I turned over the garden last weekend, and sometime in the next week Im going to plant everything. Heres what we'll have:

  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
  • String beans
  • Peas
  • Bibb Lettuce
  • Mesculin Mix
  • Micro Greens
  • Cucumbers
  • Red Radishes
  • Daikon Radishes
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Summer Squash

  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Mint
  • Dill
  • Parsley
  • Lavender
Yupp our very own hops! I order the rhizomes a few days ago online from Freshops.
We ordered the Cascade, Fuggle and Magnum hops. Hopefully we will get a decent crop this first year. Usually the hops need a year to establish their root systems, but next year we defiantly have a nice crop.

I don't mind so much

I actually really enjoy not having a job right now. Its really giving me well needed time to get things done that have been put off for a while.

I started all the seeds for our garden, which has now graduated from a few buckets on the deck to a 7'x10' plot in the back plus about another 12' of garden along the fence. That does not include flowers that I am going to plant, and herbs growing in planters. This is probably going to be too much! There will be more to come on that too.

I've been baking like crazy too. In less than 4 days i baked 3 loaves of bread, and muffins.

Today I updated my 43 things to include travel to 100 different countries. Matt and I have been watching the travel channel obsessively lately. Anthony Bourdain's no reservations is by far my new favorite show. Last night he was in Singapore, for the 7th time. He says that it might just be the best place for food lovers to go. Sign us up! How do I get a job like that?
I have a goal of traveling. Now I need a list.
