Last week’s seeds are popping up. Grow, baby, grow!
Week 2 of Planting
Six more species and 7 weeks till the last frost.
Yellow Maca/Peruvian Ginseng
First of the seedling babies. Using a paper pot method.
Anise, Lavender, Rosemary, Oregano, and Hopi Tea.
These guys get started at least 8 weeks before the last frost and they all have similar germination temperatures. Next week I’ll put in another round of new seeds. I’m excited to watch these little babies grow. I’ve got new material to sing to them to encourage their growth :)
I know it snowed last night, but I can feel spring. It’s so close!
My mom and our friend Tom were dueling last night with their accordions.
When we’re motivated, we play music together also. This woman is my musical inspiration. When I was a kid she did what any responsible parent would do and brought out her record player, putting on a Beatles’ Greatest Hits album. We’ve been to so many festivals, concerts, and coffee house shows together. Music truly connects us.
Organic Sweet Potato Fries
I added Old Bay Seasoning instead of the normal Cinnamon to counter the sweetness with some salt.
USE COCONUT OIL. Secrets revealed. Go forth and cook!
To all my people trying to stay healthy and still have simple, sweet meals~
I also added Maca Powder and Ground Cashews for an extra boost of protein.
Keep being yummy, my friends.
It’s probably time to explain The Shed.
Meet our self identified, prayer flag waving, mezuzah clad home.
It’s attached to the greenhouse. My dad had all of this built about 14 years ago, but the inside of the Shed was unfinished. So during the summer of 2011 my brothers and their friends decided to finish it. Because of their collective efforts, the Shed has been the location of many magical, ridiculous, and memorable nights. One party nearly had 200 people, and eventually some very friendly State Troopers. But it’s also a place where people have met and fallen in love.
This is part of the upstairs where I allow myself creative liberties. And obviously where I sometimes sleep. I never want it to lose its purpose as a community space. It’s important to me that the Shed always have an open door policy, being home to anyone who needs it.
Taking our dog Sparkle for a walk.
What a blessing to live so close with the rhythms of nature.
While collecting wood I found this deer skull under the leaves. I cleaned it up and now it has a special place in the Shed with some other treasures.
