I went to the "Coolest Small Town in America" (Ely, MN) today and found a nice little yarn shop with gorgeous yarns! No Red Heart or Lion Brand, not that there is anything wrong with them, but they aren't for every project and that is all we have around here. There are two yarn stores that carry a different selection of yarns and they are both an hour away, in opposite directions!!
This week, we got our garden started. We planted one garden box and my husband built another 6.5 foot box and a small box. Next up is potatoes in a stack of tires! I can't wait. We have Yukon Gold and Russet Burbank. I looked for red seed potatoes but both places that sell seed potatoes in town are out and I don't want to go driving across northern Minnesota looking for them. I have more ideas than I have space for and I will just be tempted to try something else.
