A small fail

I didn’t want to post about this yet because I’d like to wait until I have the problem solved, but I’m out of ideas for tonight, so here goes: I bought a pretty cool drying rack to use outside when the weather’s nice. I’d like to keep line-drying my laundry during the summer but it […]

Surprisingly, I don't make a lot of gravy.

I’ve been thinking a lot about composting lately. Sustainable Dave has worms doing his composting right in his basement, but that’s a little too creepy for me. I’ve thought about having a worm composter right outside our back door, because then I could just toss the scraps right after I’ve scooped them from the cutting […]
