Food, food culture, food as culture and the cultures that grow our food

Spring is a time of rebirth

February 26, 2006

But not for everyone. Upon inspection of my lands I discovered a dead mouse. And then another, and another. In total, there were six dead mice on my new plot!

Looks like someone is a picky eater. Actually, its not spring here, its still freezing five degrees in the night. I returned to my Occitanian kitchen garden Sunday to discover that not one of my cover crops had sprouted let alone burgeoned in the sub-zero weather. Imagine that, seeds not sprouting when its -5!

In the mean time I got to try out the motoculteur, which we have nicknamed the motivateur for obvious reasons. It took me thirty minutes to turn my gardens, fifteen of which were spent getting the motor to start.
