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 [...]

Goodbye by hilloah

I am retiring this week.  After a little over 63 years I will quit working for someone else and work for myself,  and Archie.  Whenever we watch Avatar ,  Archie and I walk on air knowing the importance of our job as caretakers of our land.  Now I, like Archie, will be able to do it 24/7. [...]

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 [...]

An Adventure by hilloah

This last weekend I harvested the last of the carrots.  Some were juiced (I love carrot and apple juice!) and some will be shredded and put in the freezer to make future carrot muffins.  Every Christmas I enjoy giving to others.  What will it be this year; loaves of carrot apple kuchen, cranberry walnut scones, or pumpkin [...]

Flowers and Sweets - Food for the Soul by hilloah

I love my Sweet William flowers. They are pink, crimson red, hot pink, and white with purple markings. I bring them to work for my desk and for our Marketing Director, Kristin Suratt, as well (I gave her a little friendship vase for her birthday in January and said I'd keep it in flowers through [...]

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 [...]

Weekend Events and Blogs by hilloah

What did I do this weekend? Saturday, after checking in the latest bunch of Living Light students, Archie and I went to the Little River Airport for a fund raiser for the Little River Fire Department. They had a vegetarian bar-be-que with beer, wine, water, salad, and pie. (You know how much I love pie!) [...]

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. Though the roof is on, it is only plywood without any roofing materials and the rain could get in. Last night he [...]

FRIENDS OF THE GARDEN by hilloah

Tonight the Friends of the Garden (the Mendocino Coast Botanical Garden, that is) are having an auction as a fund raiser. All the members get together and bring food, bouquets or something else of value to be auctioned off. Sometimes there is a bidding war which is always fun. Last year a small chest was up for [...]

Both our Flowers and Students are Blooming! by hilloah

The mason bees are working. We had seven tubes of them and so far eight new tubes have been filled. We will be having more filled, all for next year. Next year, however, we will wait until May before getting them out of the refrigerator as more flowers are blooming now than in March and April [...]
