It's been quite some time since I've visited!!!
Last May, we relocated from SE MI to NW OH. For about the last year, we've been in an apartment. I haven't had a garden since the 2010 season now. I'm really missing it, especially the fresh herbs. I had planned on making a small container garden on the balcony, but I got busy, drug my feet, and next I knew, it was already mid-June!
I know this heat and drought conditions have to be trying everyone's patience. My Dad planted the usual out on his farm, and despite the excessive heat and dryness, he has fared pretty well over there. I'm hoping to get some donations LOL
I've been thinking a lot lately about exactly where I'd like to settle permanently. Part of me likes the convenience of apartment living- I can ride my bike to town from here, management is responsible for repairs, and we don't have to shovel snow or mow! But, there's a lot to be said for the idea of a small house on a quiet acre or two. I still like the idea of sustainable living, something that's difficult to achieve in the 'burbs. (Although I'd need some kind of internet connection!!! LOL) I especially enjoy looking a those tiny "Tumbleweed" houses. I think that's entirely do-able if one's willing to part with their material goods (IE JUNK).
More and more I see just how much more complicated life is than it should or could be in general...
I'll be around ;)
