Yesterday my boys went out and picked tomatoes for me. Already we've brought in more than last season, which is nice. Now the trouble comes in having the time to process everything as we need to in order to preserve the food we have grown. I combat this conundrum in a couple different ways. For … Continue reading Bringing in the Harvest
I was blessed in the midst of health crisis back in 2012 to encounter the "back to basics" trend. Because I wasn't alone in my prescription birth control instigated health issues, (infertility, low estrogen, high testosterone, intestinal permeability, malnutrition, anaphylactic food allergies, food sensitivity, hair loss, weight loss, tooth decay, etc.) There was a bit … Continue reading What is Back to Eden Gardening?

Here is a photo of our butternut squash (top) grown in our combo B2E hugulkultur swale versus an organically grown butternut squash (bottom) from the grocery store. A picture is worth a thousand words. The proof is in the produce, folks. And a B2E squash is worth about 3 organic market squashes.
It has been a while, friends! The last 2 weekends in a row, we've had company. Which was nice. But that means that in focusing our efforts on the inside of the house to make it a haven for hospitality, we've been doing the bare minimum outside. My husband spend the day Monday running errands. … Continue reading Homestead Update
I have had an abundant comfrey harvest. In my experience, when God delivers an abundance of a specific crop, it's usually an advance deposit on a need we end up having later. So I'm taking this wonderful stuff to propagate the roots from cuttings, and making infused oil which will then be made into a … Continue reading Making Comfrey Salve
