    Did you say sausage CANDY? What’s that about?

  3. Kateknitsockson 24 Jan 2010 at 8:24 pm

    I’ll miss listening to you while you take a break but I’ll keep up on Twitter. Relax and enjoy Disney with your family.

    The soup sounds awesome!!! I’m going to try it. You started me on cold brew coffee so I trust your culinary expertise.

    I’ll Listen when you get back!! Cheers!!!

    oh my goodness, megan! i’ll miss hearing your podcast so much, but it’ll be nice to have something to look forward to in the end of february. enjoy your sabbatical! i’ve never commented before, but i wanted to let you know how much i enjoy listening to stitch it! every week (or so).

    also, I wanted to report, about the potatoes, that i have had quite a bit of success planting grocery-store potatoes in the ground — you probably don’t need to buy a starter potato if you don’t want to. :)

    Enjoy your break and your vacation. I’ll miss you because your podcast is one I consider a refuge from a job I don’t really like.

    As for seeds, check out seedsavers.org. Also for tomato plants and some other plants check out http://www.tastefulgarden.com/. They are about 1.5 hours from me so I might plan a trip.

    Also, can you send a link to the garbage bag potato thingy. My quick searches didn’t turn up much but I may not be using the correct search terms.

    Again, thanks and enjoy your vacation.

    Hi Meghan! I really enjoy your podcasts and I think you deserve a break or sabbatical from all your obligations! I look back on my young mothering days and know I couldn’t have kept up with all you do today. So give yourself a pat on the back and stop and smell the roses – Ahhh, it feels so good. We will all survive just fine while you are away and hope you enjoy yourself to the fullest at Disney World with Owen and family. Take good care! Peace and Love. Linda

    so hope everything is ok….worried I guess. Enjoy Disney and your break but know we miss you as part of our cyber knitting circle.

    Meghan, I also have a problem with raglans–too many increases (or decreases) required within the allotted distance between neck and bust. My solution was to use a smaller needle size at the neck and shoulders and gradually increase needle size. That way I get more rows to the inch at the top where I need them, then return to a “normal” row gauge for the body. Maybe that would help?

    Hi Meghan, I truly enjoy listening to your podcast. I think I’m starting to like the Townhomesteading part the best (and this yarncraft-a-holic can’t even believe I’ve said that). I’ve gotten all the soup ingredients and plan to give it a go tomorrow morning. The ‘kids’ are coming and it sounds easy and maybe a new favorite! Enjoy your break, we all need one sometimes!

    Hi Meghan!
    I am new to your podcast & LOVING it! I feel like I have a new friend!
    I love the whole cookbook section this podcast! My dad always cooked out of Joy of Cooking & my mom out of Better Home & Garden and Betty Crocker!
    So a few years back I asked for those cookbooks for Christmas from them!
    I love to make a huge batch of Betty Crockers chicken pot pie & and then freeze them flat ;) I also get the pie crusts & freeze those – makes for some easy meals! :)

    I have a 4 year old son so it is fun to listen to your stories!

    Thanks for the podcast!

    1- enjoy your vacation, you deserve it!!!!!
    2- i love the outlander audiobooks, now i have to re-listen to them!
    3- an excellent seed catalog is seeds of change, http://www.seedsofchange.com/, all organic seeds and excellent customer service. You should check out a book called ‘square foot gardening’ by mel bartholomew, it has great info on getting the most yield in small spaces.

  12. Courtneyon 01 Feb 2010 at 8:44 am

    I have GOT to try that soup!!!!!!! When I heard you mention it on the podcast I was very intrigued.

    The handspun is BEAUTIFUL!!! I just started spinning on my dropspindle from what used to be Grafton Fibers!!! :) You can proudly say that you got them a customer!!!

    Thanks for the soup recipe, and the awesome podcast!!!

    Hi Meghan,

    I haven’t left a comment before but your podcast is one of my favorites. I look forward to hearing from you the end of the month.

    A couple recommendations: Square Foot Gardening… great help in getting the most from your space. Natural Gardening Company http://www.naturalgardening.com [I've ordered from them], Gardener’s Supply Company http://www.gardeners.com [I have used them and also purchased gift cards for Christmas gifts], Herb Companion – magazine, and I picked up a new magazine called Grow Veggies put out by Birds & Blooms. Enjoy

    Enjoy the sabbatical–I know that we all miss your good cheer. Your conversion of the basement has given us a few ideas, but the area near the windows I was hoping to make a fiber area, is becoming the seed starting location again. My husband has built a series of light racks and we will do another round of seedlings this year. Another great company for seeds and good information is Botanical Interests — they’ve got amazing illustrations as well.

    I just started listening to your podcast, and had to let you know that I’m enjoying it! I have an almost 4 YO running around my house, as well as a veggie garden in the front yard and three new chickens out back. And we live in town on a small lot, so I get the need for space considerations.

    We’ve had great luck planting blueberries in containers. Everyone who sees out set up is sold on it so definitely give it a shot. Here’s the link I was given at the garden store regarding planting info:


    Regarding your confusion about all the different varieties of veggies and plants, I hear you! I love looking at seed catalogs, but usually get my starts and ideas from local commercial nurseries (not big retail places that have their stock shipped in from who knows where!). Since they are local, and if they sell primarily locally, they only grow plants that do well in your climate. We have a couple of organic nurseries in our area that only sell at the farmer’s market or wholesale, and they’re a really great resource for determining what will and will not do well in our area.

    Hope that helps!

    Megan, just listed to this podcast again as I want to try the “potatoes in a bag”, just wasn’t clear if the bag needed drainage of any sort. Can you send me the link to this method..I didn’t see it here. Thanks for the help.
    Oh, by the way, here is a hint for you, if you burn a candle close to the onion when you slice it, it burns off the gases of an onion and you won’t cry! Try it.
