To Be Organic by kristin

Listening to the recent controversy surrounding an NPR story about organics, I was amazed that the "scientific findings" in this particular study seemed to refute the idea that buying organic produce makes a difference to health.  And this in spite of a nationwide movement of people who are increasingly choosing farmer's markets and locally grown [...]

Aaugh! by hilloah

We had a break-in this weekend and were robbed.  We went to harvest our organic corn and found only half was still there!  We had been hit by raccoons.  Aaugh!  They may be cute little buggers, but not any more!  Our goldfish are safe from them because we provide a four-foot deep pond for them and the [...]

Weeding and Sea-weeding by hilloah

I love to weed in the garden, I love to iron, I love to peel apples: all jobs that most people regard as boring. But there is a calmness involved in doing these jobs, a rotation that allows your mind to shut down and just concentrate on the task at hand. I do not know about [...]

More Bees by hilloah

Today, Archie spent his time putting a temporary roof on our great room. He is adding a great room  to our cabin and the weather report says that it will rain tonight and tomorrow.
