I have a few new designs in the ol Etsy shop. The first few were actually inspired by my son's water color painting. I really loved the color composition and I thought, hey, this would look nice on a tote! And a phone case! And a mug! So that's what happened. The other item sprung … Continue reading New Etsy Items

Oh, goodness. I've been hard at work laying foundations for New year routines. My number one priority this year is my prayer life and relationship with God. I've been getting in the practice of waking up before the children (at least the youngest two- my 3 year old isn't much of a sleeper) to spend … Continue reading Homestead Update
Through partnering with Canva and Printful, we've been able to design our very own mugs! The first one to hit the Etsy shop is our SMH taste and see mug. Available in 11 and 15oz capacity I am SO excited! They'll go great with some of our loose-leaf back to Eden peppermint herbal tea!

I had been looking for something unique to grow on the homestead. I tried heirloom purple broccolis and cauliflowers to no avail-- cabbage loopers and cutworms destroyed them despite my efforts to save them. The same happened with my cabbages and brussel sprouts. The asparagus didn't turn out either. However-- the luffa gourds took off! … Continue reading Luffa Gourds: Natural Sponges
We've got peppermint tea ready for sale in our Etsy shop! More to come as the season progresses. We've been hard at work harvesting, drying, and packaging. I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity and if you're going to do something, do it the best way or not at all. So everything we do … Continue reading Shaggy Maple Herbal Teas

That said, the more fun part of the job is happening now: harvest! I was out early this morning harvesting mint, parsley, sage, and … Continue reading Preparation for Fall Market: herbs and seeds
