Potato Condo ready for occupancyOkay- the potato condo is done and ready for it's new tenants!It measures 3' X 3' and the sides will grow with the potatoes. Note the remnants of *&^%$# snow on the ground.
BLOGGER UPDATE-I cannot take credit for the potato condo idea- it was originally the brain child of the shiba guyz a couple of really serious urban gardeners, Local Blogging celebrities, and two of the nicest guys you could meet- and they have a couple of great little shiba dogs as well!
Today was a funny day. I went to mom's for lunch and she forgot this was my meatless day- she had chicken in a gravy, roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes- I just had roast vegetables and mashed potatoes- for lunch at work I brought along a couple of burritos made with refried beans- Vegan friendly refried beans (no lard), cheese and tortillas. I have to say I am getting more admiration for vegans- you have to think about refried beans, are they made with lard? Is the cheese soy or milk based? Quite a thought. Since I have started meatless wednesday, I have to admit to the fact I haven't eaten meat alot of other meals.I have not bought or prepared any meat products all last week- and surprise- don't miss them! I do however eat cheese and eggs, so maybe I am more vegetarian friendly than vegan friendly.
