Knock Knock Turkey Time

I have recently purchased tickets to come back to Wisconsin just before Christmas. Southwest Airlines seems to have the best deal at 69 dollars per flight from Logan airport in Boston to Midway airport in Chicago, and back again. 4 people round trip with taxes for somewhere near 550 dollars. I will be renting a car with National and selecting from the Emerald Isle. Then the 3-4 hour drive to Mineral Point, WI. This is not Door County.

However, I think its crazy to be the Door County Artist who doesn't expand his or her horizons. Staying in Door County exclusively would limit my wild curiosity. Not that you can't live and stay in Door County forever and be awesome. I just need to excuse the fact that I am not there. Nor, will I be traveling to Door County during this trip back to the cheese State.

Hey, there is a pretty good art scene in Mineral Point. You can hardly listen to Wisconsin Public Radio without hearing a "commer
cial" about Mineral Point. I will be heade…

Free Plant Catalogs

I have long wanted to start a farm. Land in Door County is not cheap, but it isn't horrible in price either. The soils vary greatly. In some places the bed rock is just feet or inches below. The soil is rocky and really not that great. In other places the soil is deep and fantastic. Anyway, as I dream away about the perfect property to start my farm here is a list of  the plant catalogs that you can get delivered for free. Once you get these catalogs you can dream of your perfect garden or orchard.
