"The tragic reality is that very few sustainable systems are designed or applied by those who hold power, and the reason for this is obvious and simple: to let people arrange their own food, energy and shelter is to lose economic and political control over them. We should cease to look to power structures, hierarchical systems, or governments to help us, and devise ways to help ourselves." - Bill Mollison

Rainy Day Carrots

It was another sloppy rainy day and the latter part of it was spent hauling flats to the greenhouse, bowing before my leeks - begging them to please germinate already, and sorting through carrots. We try to check on our root cellar veggies this time of year, first to remove any that have rotted, and second to choose the ones that will be replanted for seed. I only found a couple carrots that were bad but had yet to spoil the bunch. Around 250 left - looks like we will have enough to get us through until the end of June when some of the new ones should be ready.
