Food, dogs, gardening, books.
This is unrelated to the current post, but I saw your comment at GardenRant about your cistern. I hope when/if you ever do anything with it you write about it here. We also have a giant mystery cistern under our porch, and it seems like it could be so useful, but I'm stumped for how to make it so.
Hi, plantingoaks; that wasn't me, but the commenter before or after me. I wish I did have a cistern, Sure would save on water bills.
