Woops, guess we're all not gardening right now.  

HAPPY NEW YEAR, NEW ENGLAND!   and everyone else!

I was pleasantly surprised to look out my bedroom window this morning and see some  baby kale and collard leaves ready to be picked for my morning smoothie:

Weather has been in the 40's lately.  I can live with that.    rahrah
Anyone else have any surprises or New Year news?

No snow up there right now? I am loving my new juicer that daughter gave me for Christmas.

Nice!  What brand of juicer, Sanderson?   I got an air fryer.  It's a lot like a dehydrator but on steroids.  I'm heading for some crunchy (I hope) seasoned chickpeas for snacking on tonight.  They are cooking in the crock pot right now.  

No snow yet.  We are threatened with the occasional flurry or little white pellets now and then but it doesn't hang around long.  Really cold now though.  Hi tomorrow is 19. Yikes!

CC, I see you getting part of what is heading our way in the early morning hour here.  We have had a super mild and snowless winter here so far...no complaints here.

CC, question;  I have a bag of mussel shells from an appetizer—do I need to do anything to them before I put them on my compost pile?  It isn’t a hot pile or anything fancy, just a straight up compost pile.  Wink

I've always just dumped my shells of every kind right into a deep hole in the pile and buried them.  Sometimes my neighbors give them to me in a paper bag and I don't bother to open it, just shove it down the hole. Shrimp peels, too.  If you don't go deep enough though, the critters will come.

Do these shells actually decompose in a compost pile.  ????  When I was a kid I lived out in the country outside of Jacksonville, Florida.  Most of the dirt driveways were fortified/covered with oyster shells.  They never decomposed.  I can see the shrimp peels decomposing but not the mussel shells?  What am I missing.

You know, I did this a couple years ago, put a bunch of mussel shells in the compost pile.  Of course they ended up whole in the beds as I fortified the boxes.  I think they have to leach calcium etc into the mix.  I think I will just dump them in and do the same thing.  

I still find a pretty shell in the beds on a regular basis.

CC, How did your chickpeas turn out?

The juicer is a Mueller Ultra-Juicer MU-100. It looks like it was around +/- $100. It's easy to clean. The only thing I do immediately, before I ever drink the juice, is clean the stainless steel shredding thingy. That's so it won't rust.

Sanderson the chickpeas turned out great! Nice and crunchy! Next time I will add more spices and I will not put  them in a jar  until they are completely cooled. Apparently I put them in the jar too soon and they became soft. I'm still using them in my salads though.
