Slegg lumber is almost as much fun as Lee Valley
This is so exciting. I feel like a kid at Christmas. Okay, speaking of Christmas...the other day Allan and I went to Industrial Plastic to buy a plastic bin for the dry organic fertilizer that I make. Out front they had several rain barrels. I literally stopped in my tracks and said "ooooooooooooooo, I really want one of those for Christmas!! He said, "Okay, who are you and what have you done with my wife?"
After the wood buying binge we stopped by my sisters place to pull out ten pounds of beets courtesy of "compost guru Jim". He told me to help myself. I'm going to make pickled beets this week. My grandmother Mary used to preserve everything they needed for the winter. She had a cold room in the basement. You opened the door, and there were shelves and cupboards around the whole room. There were several bins that were full of potatoes, onions and carrots(?). I remember the smell of that room like it was yesterday instead of 45 years ago. I still miss her, she was the most beautiful being that ever lived on this planet.
