Yesterday I visited my vegetable garden in the 30 degree weather.  All the work of the past year laid out before me, and all the work left undone, too. So now come my guilty gardening confessions. I didn’t clean out my beds this year. Not just the old plants that should have gone to the […]

September’s still summer, but the nights are like fall. I love this song by Girlyman (they’re one of my favorite bands).  The lyrics were running through my head this past weekend as we experienced glorious sunny days but cool, damp nights.  We were thankful for being together as a family and alive, as we reflected […]

I am always amazed when tiny seeds, when placed in dirt with some water, produce food like this: I harvested these on the 27th to add to Amanda Soule’s Carrot Tomato Soup.  (Yes, all was washed before adding to the pot!) We had plenty for dinner that night with leftovers for yesterday & today.  I […]

The camera and I have been strangers for what seems to be weeks now.  So yesterday while out for the dog’s morning romp I slung it ’round my neck and took the time to notice all the signs of the season despite the mud and rain (signs in and of themselves!). It’s been caked on […]

The {this moment} post from last week was just the beginning of our adventures in leaf compost over the past few days. We spent the past few days getting and hauling so much of the “black gold” to put in our flower beds, herb garden, and for the new beds that are being constructing in […]

Spring is really and truly here.  Despite the snow in the forecast this week, I feel the lethargy of spirit I’d been experiencing beginning to lift.  There is always so much to do in spring, to see, and to experience. What are the signs of the new season where you live (spring or autumn!)? Is […]

My yearly February ritual of planting the tiny little black seeds that will become aromatic additions to our meals in the form of onions. How many of you find the smell of wet soil uplifting? I do, at least in February when the soil is generally under snow which may or may not be white […]
