want some cover seeds for your garden?

We get a farm share with Brookfield Farms.  In last weeks newsletter , they talked about putting down a cover crop to winterize the farm, and I thought that sounded like something interesting to try for my humble backyard garden.  So, I wrote to Farmer Dan and asked if they sell their seed mix.  

In response, he sent me enough seed to cover 4500 sq ft - for free!  Which is awesome, but is also at least 20x what I can actually use.  Thus, I'm looking to share it with anyone who want some.  You'll have to come to our place in Arlington to get it, or make other arrangements, but I'm not going to mail it out or anything like that.

Please, take my seeds!

In other news, apparently, it's been over a year since I last posted.  hrm. 



Title: Meredith Brooks - Bitch lyrics
Artist: Meredith Brooks

I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
tried to tell you but you look at me like maybe I'm an angel
innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
You must have been relieved to see the softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
all rolled into one

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your health, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
and I'm going to extremes
tomorrow I will change
and today won't mean a thing


Just when you think you've got me figured out
the season's already changing
I think it's cool you do what you do
and don't try to save me


I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
when you hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numbed, I'm revived
can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way

more XKCD

Dataloading is really boring at work, so I'm reading XKCD while it runs.

- People thought I was weird at work when I started using Ben Bitdiddle and Alyssa P Hacker as examples.

- maybe I should approach my gym time like this
wine bottle

(no subject)

I've started a new LJ for keeping track of my brewing and wine-making experiences:
garlicwine.  It's mostly there in the hopes that I'll actually manage to keep logs, which are so important in brewing and wine-making, but maybe some of my brew-oriented friends might find it interesting or have useful comments.   If nothing else, you can use it to keep track of when my latest batch of homebrew will be ready to drink :-)

rye bread

Does anyone have a good recipe for proper Jewish rye bread? Doing some reading up on it, it seems that I need a starter; does anyone have some they'd be willing to share, or have good directions on how I can get some started on my own? I had this dream of making rye bread while I visit my parents in NJ this weekend, but the need for the starter may make this impossible. Still, once I get it going, I can always use it to make bread at home (in my Copious Free Time). There are few things better in the world that a nice, soft slice of good rye bread ....
