Animals and winter
We're flying today, but that's lots of time to read. I'm still reading Four-Season Harvest, while Angelika's exploring Storey's Guide to Raising Rabbits. I'm thinking about vegetables and ducks, while she's thinking about furrier creatures.
All of these things, though, are about developing a different kind of garden, one in which animals play a big role. Both our animal and our vegetable ideas are going to mean a lot of construction, as rabbits, ducks, and winter vegetables all need sheltered homes. It's probably a good thing that I've decided to focus an hour a day on the garden.
(And a lot of Angelika's plans are more about the orchard than the garden, but the garden is a great place to try things out for the orchard, and may be a good place to keep working with various creatures and projects even after the orchard really gets going.)
