First cucumbers and squash were picked from the garden this morning. Both Asian and pickling cucumbers, and yellow and patty pan squash. There were also lambs quarters, chard, and a precious few raspberries and blackberries in my basket. Garlic has been harvested, and is drying. The onions will soon follow suit. Our last Americauna left us Friday. No obvious cause, so we're wondering if it was just the heat that got her. I will miss her, our littlest hen, and her blue eggs that always looked so festive among the various shades of brown.
I'm a soapmaker, massage therapist and gardener. Living a simple, green lifestyle is what I aspire to, and something I continue to learn about. The organic gardens here grow food, flowers & herbs. This home was built with the help of several other folks. It took many years, but is now my sanctuary, and where I'm learning to honor my creativity. Believing words are powerful, along with soapmaking, is how the blog was named, rather than there being any exceptional cleanliness here on the homestead :o). Thanks for taking this journey along with me!
