I am spreading myself too thin

So I've decided to just have one blog. Maybe it'll force me to post my artwork and crafts more often.

I'm doing gardening right now.
In the garden I've got rutabagas and Brussel sprouts, onions, garlic, and potatoes. OH and sugar snap peas and blackberry vines.

In the house in seed pots are tomatoes.. lots of different kinds. Mostly heirloom tomatoes. I have eggplant, artichoke plus several kinds of peppers.

I'm hoping to raise enough stuff that I can put a sign out by the highway to sell some of my stuff. Thinking about getting some more chickens too to sell the eggs. Gonna make salsa or pepper sauce out of the surplus and possibly make some fresh motzerella (sp) cheese if I can find someone to provide me with the milk. It is very difficult for me, but then I've only done it three or four times. It doesn't keep too long, but I'm willing to try.

Been knitting and trying to draw. I have this idea for a painting..had it for years.. but it's very involved so I'm procrastinating.

The kids have started to nursing school. They say they are doing fine. It is going to be a really long road for them. But it's a good way to make a living and there is always a need for nurses.
