out with the old!

happy new year! 2008 was quite a year for me - i started roller derby, which created a huge subset of new adventures and general lifestyle changes, i went to san diego, we went to new york, we moved back to portland, i've had two temporary jobs, barack obama was elected...yep. big year.

we've enjoyed a lot of good meals in the last few weeks - hooray for celebrations! dinner at pok pok, the farm, and por que no?. all so good. i heartily reccomend the vegetarian curry soup, baked brie, and margaritas, respectively.

i also got a new toy for christmas. check out my new growth!

i've had a dismal time growing herbs indoors, so here's hoping the aerogarden is the solution. sure, it's more energy-intensive (sigh), but everyone who has one seems to love them. any aerogardeners out there?

I keep looking at those aerogardeners but can't bring myself to spend the money. Think it's worth it?

How well is this processes working for you? I know very little about aerogardening, but it seems pretty interesting.

I'm so glad I discovered your wonderful blog!! Your aerogarden looks terrific! I love your idea of adding chunks of cheese to scrambled eggs instead of grated cheese, too - absolutely brilliant!

thanks astra libris!

about the aerogarden: i'll update right now with new pictures. it's hard to tell just now if it's really worth the cost, but it's incredibly easy. give it a month or two, and i'll let you know.

Do you just need the seeds or do you need the expensive light thing too?

I had an ex who tried indoor container gardening. It was rather like... well, you can imagine. Didn't work very well; butterball lettuce grew tall and skinny and our one broccoli plant didn't make anything edible till it was outside and then we got one floret.
