Back on the bike and preparing for Spring garden February 13, 2009

After quite few weeks of bad weather, meetings, cold mornings, sickness, etc, I finally got back on the bike commute this morning. Felt great. Time to melt away the winter fat. Rode the Townie today. Will ride the Giant ATX 750 tomorrow, or maybe the single speed Centurion mixte.

On the garden front, we had the ugly, sick, and poorly-placed hackberry tree removed from our backyard. This will afford us both more space and more sunlight for growing vegetables. The tree didn’t provide shade to the house at all, so once we get some nice big bushes there for the birds, it won’t look quite so naked back there.

Looking forward to the greening of the backyard. Need to get everything geared up!

Finally, I found this really cool story about sustainable economies on the Civil Eats blog.
