Last Day of 2009

Hey, it's December 31st of 2009!

Looking back on the year, there are a number of things I really liked about it:
  • getting my first harvest of red potatoes planted under hay
  • getting a few melons, though they didn't really ripen as they should because the weather so unfriendly to melons this year
  • getting a great harvest of black raspberries (and turfing out some weed red raspberries with great satisfaction!)
  • exchanging my long, heavy kayak for a much lighter, more nimble one that it is also much easier to travel with
  • going to the first Canadian Yearly Meeting since I last attended 15 years ago and reconnecting with people from Atlantic Canada
  • getting a free GIS up and running for the Urban Forest program at Peterborough GreenUp
  • exploring the Celebration of the Arts in Scottsdale
  • finding lots of great organic produce at the Scottsdale Farmers Market when we visited there
  • hiking in Sedona
  • kayaking on Cape Cod
  • hiking in New Hampshire
  • spending an afternoon at the nudist swimming hole on the Mad River in Vermont
  • getting into doing no-knead artisan bread when we travel as well as at home
  • making dandelion wine for the first time in nearly 30 years
  • finding more and more great local stuff in Peterborough and at its farmers' market
  • using my solar dehydrator a lot (when the sun shone!)
Celebrate! Celebrate! Celebrate!
