Great photos. I assume the potatoes were grown by you, and is that your helping hand? ha! I see your room was used for lots of things. I was just wondering if it was your space for you to define and be yourself in? or part of the family gathering spot and I see it was both. I also was curious what you did for "you" before stitching, so thus the room question, but I see you did lots. You strike me as a writer or poet do you do any of that, or did you?I spent 15 years studying and working with sustainable agriculture, and was on the board of some local organic groups, but for some reason, around here anyway, they (farmers) seem more concerned with the added bottom line andd really don't show much sincerety in the agriculture, as you know it's more than JUST not spraying.
Helen~you are such a perfectMichigan person. all yourquestions. that was the hardest thing for meto learn here...not asking questions.yes. i was so amazed and proudof my potatoes. oh my potatoes.OH MY POTATOES....everything aboutpotatoes i love...planting, theirplants/blossoms, the harvesting.this year it was sweet potatoes.i actually COULD feed myself. it'sa great feeling. a great sense ofconfidence.yes. i wrote literally pounds ofstuff. some of it was good.i burned it all.
I'm sorry. Not nosey, just inquisitive by nature, that's how one aquires knowledge which I just can't get enough of. I'll try not to ask people questions especially before I find out if I'm too annoying.But one last question: do people in NM not ask questions?
Helen..not annoying at all...was commenting in a "fond" way.re: all of New Mexico, can't speakfor that, but in my dead husband'sworld it was, uhhh, different.for a long time, i would ask things, a lot of things and theni learned to just be quieter. verydifficult to describe. and notNew Mexican, but i think, rather,old chicano cultural thing. i like your questions.
