Volunteering Can Be Fun by hilloah

The Fort Bragg Food Bank means much more to our city than just giving food to those who are having an economic hard time. They also accept clothes to give to participants. The Cheshire Book Store aligns with the Food Bank and encourages their patrons to buy books and then  gives them to the Food Bank […]

What Are You Doing? by hilloah

One of the most fun things to do here on the coast in December is to take the Candlelight Tour. The inns in Albion, Mendocino, and Fort Bragg open their doors to the public, show the rooms that are decorated for the holidays and serve goodies. The public buys tickets to the event and the proceeds […]

Waiting, Wine and Work by hilloah

We have been waiting for the Walla Walla onions to come in since October: you are supposed to plant them in the first part of November. Finally we went to the nursery from which we had ordered them, only to be told that their supplier had gone out of business. Arrgh! We went to another nursery […]

Flowers, Food and Fun by hilloah

This weekend we pulled the weeds from in front of one of our gardens. We knew there were a couple of Naked Lady bulbs there so we were very careful when pulling. To our delight there were at least nine bulbs that had already poked their leaves up through the dirt!  Archie took the Mantis […]

Veggies and Desserts by hilloah

It is getting a little cold here in Fort Bragg (43° F this morning),  so Sunday evening we put a dish of our harvested vegetables in the oven. Normally, we focus on fresh, delicious raw vegetables but this weather brings out the baker in me. We’d never had delicata squash before, but now that we’ve tried […]

Harvest by hilloah

This weekend we harvested as many veggies as possible: pumpkins, green and yellow zucchinis, tomatoes, red bell peppers, jalapeños, and our dahlias. We still have lots of winter squash growing, garlic, green onions, chard, Red Russian Kale, lettuce, and cabbage. Though the pretty green worms got to the cabbages first, so we have decided to […]

Brave New World and Victory Gardens by hilloah

If you read my blog last week, you heard about my Dad, and his journey in America. Today, as part of our Day of the Dead observance honoring our ancestors, I’ll tell you a little about my mother. She was born Virginia Ruth Rowell, and when she was twenty-five (in 1938) she discovered a new religion […]

My Favorite Season by hilloah

It is hard to work today. Fall is my favorite season and the picture on my desktop is the epitome of dusk, towards the end of the day.  I want to be home to decorate for fall. Pumpkins, corn husks (yum, our corn was good tasting this year – not too much, but very good), […]

Living Light Chef Showcase and My Gardens of Quiet by hilloah

We have been working every day these past two weeks to make sure our culinary showcase was a success. I believe it was. Every chance I got I would ask an attendee if he or she thought this year was enjoyable. Without exception the answers came back: “Loved it!” “I learned so much!” “It is […]

Bird House, Raw Veggies, Flowers and the Chef Showcase – by hilloah

Archie’s birdhouse sold for almost $200.00 this past weekend at the Mendocino Botanical Gardens . They served wine, fresh veggies and other delicious snack foods. Another birdhouse was bought out right – no bidding – for $1,000.00. Wonderful! I went up to the woman who bought it and congratulated her not only on her good taste, […]
