  • 05/18/07--16:42: Eating Local Foods in May
  • The setting: month of May, permaculture homestead. My husband is away and I don’t like grocery shopping. Time is right for some creative cooking with local foods and whatever could be found in the pantry, the refrigerator. I have one full month to work on my writing, in the garden, and experiment with Eating Local Foods. After all, our permaculture homestead is in its 8th year of evolution. So what can I find in my […]

  • 07/02/07--19:46: Garlic Gardening Season
  • Midsummer, hot and rich with garden life. Blossoms everywhere, plants and animals busy. Garlic is finishing its growing season, leaves yellowing, bulbs large, swollen and juicy. Eighty feet of garlic plants in a permaculture mandala garden, stalks forming their own pattern of beauty. This quantity should be enough for two people for the year, plus some put aside for seeding in the fall, plus some to give away. Garlic harvest is coming up, once stalks […]

  • Four-month old baby in arms, fabulous garden, lots to do. Time to can, freeze, bake. The idea of having my own home-grown pumpkin as baby food was brilliant, though pumpkin is way too huge for any baby to eat! An entire meal – home-grown I love being able to make entire meals that are home-grown, not now and then, but regularly, or even every day! With each year of permaculture gardening, it is easier to […]

    I feel like a field mouse lately, the cold nights and cool days of late September inviting actions directed at keeping warmth in the house, gathering the food stuffs for the long winter ahead. Preparing the firewood, knitting a few more garments to keep the family cozy…. searching for the slippers that were put away for the summer. The autumn at our permaculture homestead is always filled with the pleasant worries of putting food up […]
