Where is home? - I wonder. Somedays I would say that home is everywhere on our planet Earth. Somedays I feel very much out of place everywhere I go. But, as I get close to my 29th birthday I am increasingly feeling at home where I am and where I am going. A snapshot of… Continue reading Home in Two Places
Happy Lammas, happy Imbolc, happy end of Winter, happy final weeks of Summer - where ever you are, however you celebrate the changing of the seasons, I wish you the best. For me here in the Southern Hemisphere it spring is just barely beginning. Nettles are springing up from the previously hard and frozen soil.… Continue reading Garden Journal :: orange season

Not many plants survive these frosty times but I go out into the garden daily to appreciate the plants that are there: lemon balm, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, and nettles.

Just a week after the equinox I sit in the garden surrounded by pots and type out this blog post with the help of my cellphone. It is officially fall in the Southern Hemisphere and although the weather is getting cooler, gardening is far from over. Fall is a great time to plant and grow… Continue reading Garden Journal :: the transitional time
Life on a farm rotates betweens rewarding days and confusing days, at least for me anyway. Some days I feel like I achieved so much and perfectly balanced my work on the computer with my real life digging in the dirt. Other days I feel like I started a dozen projects but didnt actually accomplish… Continue reading Homesteader Diary :: So Many Baby Animals!!
A few months have past since I posted a garden update. I had a few topical articles I was eager to share about butterflies and ecology but this blog isn't only for talking about ecology - it's also about being a part of ecology. We all play a significant role in our local ecologies and… Continue reading Homesteader Diary :: Summer Garden Update
