A bit about me:
I'm a recently retired (due to health issues) philosophy professor who was raised by back to the landers in the Northeast. I've spent the last twenty five years living in the suburbs, yearning to get back to the land of my childhood. I just made the big jump with my partner and moved to an off the grid house in rural New Mexico where I'm slowly learning and re-learning how to grow my own food, slow down, and simplify my life.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Bison burgers
Currently reading:
Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt
Currently listening to:
the breeze outside my door
My latest DIY project:
Planting winter garlic

Morning Desert Amble

I went for a short amble this morning with one of the dogs and one of the cats. The sky was overcast, which is very unusual.  Every day for weeks now has been sunny.  It stayed chilly much longer this morning, since the sun wasn't out to warm things up as it usually does.

A few things I saw on my walk:

Juniper berries, which despite their name, are actually cones.  These are edible, though pretty pungent.  Don't eat them when they're green; wait until they turn…

Hi, MisAnthrope. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). So glad you found us—and especially happy to see you’ve already found the member blog, The Stew. I made your post today’s Daily Bite (at the top of the homepage) and tweeted it, so here’s hoping we get some responses on how other HOMEGROWN folks handle that particular prickly issue. And in the meantime, you certainly deserve an A for effort. Thanks, too, for sharing the link to your personal blog. As you’ve already deduced, we encourage folks to cross-post. We love to help spread the love! Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
