I'm not new, per se, to SP, but back again and starting fresh.
Goals for 2009 - run, slowly, a 5K race in November; learn to make my own cheese and yogurt; start a veggie garden and augment with a share from the local CSA.
I live in northern Maine (NoME) where, today, it is not predicted to get above zero. This makes local eat a smidgen difficult in the winter, but I do what I can. I use a lot of potatoes (we grow 'em here), local wheat, buckwheat, honey and frozen fruits from the summer to make it through. I am not a true locavore, but rather someone who's trying to deepen my relationship with myself and my environs.
I like to can and am pretty good at it for a young'n.I often freeze fruits and veggies instead of learning to use the pressure cooker. So, now you know what's on my summer list of things to learn. :)
Can't wait to learn more from all of you!
