Now that we’re settling in back here in the “old country” I’ve decided that the worlds needs more Canada and I’m going to do my part by bringing you some Canadiana now and then.
I just got back from the Story Circle conference in Austin, TX and, as is often the case, I had trouble sleeping in unfamiliar hotel rooms. Wide awake one night, I found myself poking around the blogosphere and somehow came upon The Art of Doing Stuff.
I spent more time than I should have poking around the categories on this site that long and sleepless night. I found all sorts of ideas for projects I want to try in the garden, in the kitchen, everywhere. It’s better than Pinterest!
One of the things I found that inspired me was a lot of info about growing garlic. You have to plant garlic in the fall so I’m filing a lot of this away for future reference, but I am kind of smitten with the garlic scapes that should be showing up in the next couple of months. Sure, you can cook with them but I think they look pretty neat in a vase too. I have noticed that a lot of the plots in the community garden where I have my plot have garlic growing in them. I might have to befriend some of my garlic-growing community gardener compadres and get me some scapes come June or July.
Head on over to The Art of Doing Stuff and check it out and don’t be surprised if an hour goes by while you’re clicking, reading, taking notes, and getting inspired. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
