Kind of a lost day
It's not too hard to read gardening books on planes, but the timezone change makes it hard to do anything when you get off the plane. We did get back and were happy to find the chickens in their coop, with three eggs as a welcome-home gift. I battled the cat-litter compost (more on that later), and got things into the house, but otherwise all I've managed is to flip through a bit of Gaia's Garden, the first book that made permaculture seem coherent to me.
Hopefully I'll be more effective tomorrow.
