Maximum Time Aloft

Jenness Beach, Rye, NH
January 16, 2016!

First the Backhand Huck.  These are pretty sub par throws for me but it aint easy to hold the camera and balance a throw perfectly which is what you have to do playing Maximum Time Aloft.

Next the Forehand Huck which is much more of a fickle throw but can be put much higher when it is done correctly.  On this one I really had to cut back because holding the camera in the opposite hand takes me out of position.... fun stuff though.  I was taunting the surfer in the truck because the beach is just spectacular in a snowstorm but all the surfers were hiding in their trucks, leaving the whole beach for me.

Enjoy 2016 wherever it may take you!

New Year New Seeds

The first day of the New Year is when I like to start planning the garden.  This year I've abandoned some old favorites like Dr. Wyche's Yellow (which I still love) in favor of some new items from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.  You should be able to click on the links below.

This year will be a new challenge as I will have to plan the garden around the chickens, who are likely to take a keen interest in seedlings.  However, on the positive, I am going to have a ridiculous amount of compost to add into the soil in the coming years and may not need to buy fertilizer anymore.  It's great how having just a few chickens can close the loop on gardening.  The garden goes into the compost.  The chickens eat the compost and add nutrients.  The compost goes back into the garden, and we get eggs as a byproduct.

That is something to look forward to in 2015!

                              March can be so seedy!

                              Yes that is a double entendre.  But here are this years seed order.  Let me know if you are interested via facebook or email.  
                              Onions.
                              Liege Winter Giant blue leeks.

                              Tomatoes.

                              Dr. Wyche's Yellow (orange actually)

                              Beans

                              Susplendid Animation: rareseeds.com order!

                              It's absolutely frozen outside.  Everything is shut down, waiting for the snow to melt and spring's return.  At least there is football, and the hope the Patriots make the superbowl. 

                              But spring is not that far away as we get closer and closer to the equinox and the feeling that each day is longer than the one before it surrounds us.   My first order is from Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds, probably the largest heirloom seed company in the US.  It's a family business but their seed collection is tremendous.  They also publish a magazine, Heirloom Gardener, that is worth checking out.  I bring my old copies to the Langdon Library, if interested. 

                              Unfortunately, this year I won't be growing any cucumbers or squash because of the cucumber beetles and squash vine borers.  I am going to take a year off and hopefully their population crashes. Not sure it will work, but that's good news for the farmers at the market. 

                              I also plan to re-order from Adaptive Seeds which offers one of the best watermelons, Bozeman, and a few other plants that can't be found anywhere else.  But more on that later.  Here is my list of seeds for the garden in 2013!







                              Wethersfield Red (accidental order)
