Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

It's been a while since I last posted! I've been very busy with my artwork! I've begun working seriously on it again- it had been a good 15 years since I'd last made a real attempt. Now that my daughter is growing up, I have more time to do so! I've been doing a lot of nature inspired work, which I will share with you here!

We're looking at a piece of land to put a modular home on so that we can garden and enjoy nature in peace. Our garden this year honestly ended up a weedy mess. I got lots of cherry tomatoes, dill, sage, chives and , salad greens and some beans, but many of the plants did not mature well due to lack of rain, and the fact that I've not been inspired to go out there and tend it with all the noise, european paperwasp infestation, and our new crappy neighbors that moved in last fall. It's gotten to the point that is not enjoyable. I used to sit in our yard swing and enjoy the day- not so this summer.

SO anyhow, that's what I've been up to... Hope everything is going well for all you Homegrowner's out there!

Hi Carrie - good to hear from you. Your photos are beautiful! Sorry to hear about your garden, but it sounds like you are eating great salads at least. I hear you on the crappy neighbors - we're looking to make a move, but, sadly, within the city limits. This time, we'll scrutinize the houses next door as much as the one we're moving into!

Hey Cornelia! Actually my husband just left to go out to the land and check it out a little more! We went in the evening and forgot the skeeter repellent so... LOL Luckily this place would only add about 15 minutes to the drive to his workplace. It's WELL worth it. He's originally from a rural area, so he's used to it ;)
