All the world is a laboratory to the inquiring mind.

I finally found time to get the first of the January recipes up. I hope you enjoy them, they’ll “warm you up” without “filling you out”! I love cooking winter meals comprised of good things that grew in the summer garden. It’s so easy to freeze peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, broccoli, chard and more and have organic ingredients at hand for dinner time. No bland grocery store veggies here!
I tried something new today. It’s called “winter sowing” and you can read all about it at OurLittleAcre. I’ve grown self-sowing perennials, annuals and herbs for years by either scattering seeds in soil in late fall, sowing them in the snow or by planting seeds in pots that sit out, uncovered, through the winter. When early spring warmth arrives, the seeds awaken and sprout as they would if left to re-seed on their own. After reading Kylie’s post I decided to try winter sowing in milk jugs, too. I’m curious if the results will be the same…or better…than my “old” method. I’ll be sure to let you know…meanwhile why not try it yourself?
There are so many wonderful blogs I read that inspire me. Tonight I’ll finally add a blogroll to this site so you can visit them as well. Who knows what you’ll be inspired to try…
