Positively Committed

By: Notes From The Frugal TrenchesFor just shy of the last three weeks, I've been volunteering with children in orphanages some of whom are special needs and others are in hospice care. It was, hands down, the most amazing experience of my life. There was intense sadness and grief and yet incredible joy and peace. I learned so much about simple happiness and joy from those special special souls.

A Little Cash on Hand

by Chiot's RunThere are so many types of emergencies that we need to be prepared for big ones, small ones, short ones and long ones. Chances are, most of us will never experience a big major emergency, but it's wise to be prepared. Your preparation efforts for these large scale emergencies can be built over a period of time (stocking the pantry, water filters, generator, emergency heater, etc).

A simple garden recipe

by Throwback at Trapper CreekThe long days of summer are full of activities, and I find I have less time to cook, even though fresh ingredients are abundant this time of year. Here is a simple recipe I gleaned from a local CSA newsletter. I use this frequently and mix and match greens depending on what is available in the garden. This week it is Bok Choy, Silverbeet, Spinach and garlic scapes.

A Simple Party

Posted by Belfrom Spiral GardenWe have just hosted a party for over 100 people. We had live bands, dancing, a buffet meal, cake and coffee. And it wasn’t expensive or a lot of work.Initially, I began with a huge 2-column to-do list. First I booked the hall – a country hall with well-equipped kitchen, huge stage, dance floor, all tables and chairs, crockery and cutlery. There isn't enough room

Make Your Own Takeout: Hot and Sour Soup!

By Abby of Love Made The Radish Grow

I have had a hot and sour soup recipe in queue to try for awhile. This one is soooo fast, soooo easy and soooo good. It was a great, fast lunch today, and will be on a regular rotation now at our house. I started with a recipe I had found at The Kitchn, but modified it quite a bit to make sure it fit what I had on hand, and to make things a bit more

Deviating From The Norm

written by Gavin from The Greening of Gavin

I have found that by living my life in a less complex, more greener, and by spending my money wisely, that I have begun to drastically deviate from the normal way of living that others expect.  I will try and explain what I mean by this by way of examples.

I don't use credit cards.  As I have explained in my own blog, I believe that Debt = Slavery, in

Chronicles of a New Garden: pesto from home-grown basil

by FrancescaFuoriBorgoToday I noticed my basil had grown enough to allow me to make the first pesto of the season. Below is the traditional Italian recipe for pesto from home-grown basil, which I originally posted on FuoriBorgo here. Few foods embody the Mediterranean summer better than pesto, a traditional Ligurian herb paste and pasta sauce that perfectly blends the diverse fragrances and

Of Beekeeping and Enchanted Groves


by, Danelle Stamps at The Stamps Family Farm (My Total Perspective Vortex)


Most of the week our farm has looked like this. We have had a lot of rain, flash flooding, 50-70 MPH winds, and in general a whole lot of mud sloppery. Our pigs are in hog heaven with all the mud and cool rain. Our tomatoes also seem to like it. Two of our bean beds were washed out and I missed the window for a lot of

Time for a Shot?

by Sadge, at Firesign FarmThis is a repost from last year; but still a timely reminder. When I first posted it, many of the comments were about the pros and cons regarding infant immunizations. This is an informational post aimed strictly at adults. Parents will want to do their own research, and make their own decisions, regarding the health care of their children. ~SadgeWhen I was about eight

Loving the Seasonal Life

by Chiot's RunAs I strive to eat more seasonally I find myself enjoying each item more than I ever have. I've always loved strawberries, and usually we consumed them mostly during their season, but I'd occasionally buy them at the grocery. They were never as good though, a shell of what a sun ripened strawberry picked in the back yard or at a local farm is. No doubt because they were grown

Making do when challenges come your way

by Throwback at Trapper CreekIt has been a challenging year here in the Pacific Northwest weather-wise, for gardeners and farmers. I wrote several weeks ago about my gardening challenges during the rainiest spring (since 1888) on record. This week I will share some of the challenges the rainy weather has had on our other livestock.While our cattle have enjoyed the cool, damp weather and the

SUNSHINE !

The sunshine is finally out and it is hot. This heat should cut back on the slug hunting. Cabbage Moth larva, still needs serious prowling (both on display pre duck feeding.. in this lovely cabbage)Hens and goats learning to share... ; )InFARMation was really great - thank you to everyone who came out! More about it when it and a list of the farms here soon (when it's dark and cool). Enjoy

Growing food for Livestock

Posted by BelFrom Spiral GardenWe have 20 acres of grass which supplies most of the food required, year-round, for our 2 horses, house cow and calves. It doesn’t snow here, and frosts are mild only browning off the lowest sections of grass. The grasses grown here are tropical varieties on which cattle do well, but horses do not always do so well. We supplement the horses with minerals and

What Does Your Body Tell You?

By Notes From The Frugal TrenchesI'll be honest, I never used to listen to my body, in fact if you'd of told me my body was trying to tell me something I probably would have looked at you like you had 100 heads, or maybe 101 ;-) Slowly but surely as I started to work less and live more, stop running and instead being I learned that my body has a natural rhythm that I need to, when possible (or

What about dinner?

by Abby of Love Made the Radish Grow
I gotta say that I have trouble trying to decide what to talk about when it comes time to blog-especially this time of year when time is at a premium. So, I think I'll talk about something along those lines.
By this early part of summer we are just about finished planting until the fall crops go in, yet the amount of work is still incredible. We are mulching,

Urban Farming at InFARMation

This Wednesday June 9th at 6:30pm, I'm moderating an awesome panel of 10+ urban farmers for InFARMation at Roots Organic Brewery in SE Portland for Friends of Family Farmers. We wrote to over 30 farms we know that live and farm in the city or commute to land in neighboring towns with a questionnaire and are really excited to introduce you to them and get a great discussion going.It's FREE and the

Dirt Therapy

by Gavin from The Greening of Gavin.

Over the last few days, due to a major kitchen renovation, I have been unable to get outside into my garden.  For someone who loves to spend time with their hands in the dirt all weekend, the absence of doing so has a strange effect on me.

Call me weird (or not), but because I have not been able to garden, I began to feel a wave of the blues coming on. 

Chronicles of a New Garden: zucchini blossoms

by FrancescaFuoriBorgoWhen I saw the first bright yellow blossoms among the still sparse greenery of my garden, I was ecstatic. So far my garden has only produced several different kinds of lettuces, and a few radishes, but nothing else! Thanks to a very late spring, my peas and fava beans (the first vegetables to ripen in this area) are just beginning to flower now, a month behind – I'm not

Lessons on the Farm for the Novice Farmer

By Danelle at Mytotalpv

There are things I thought I'd learn and things I never thought of in a million years.

I thought I'd learn more about astronomy and yet the moments I've had to stare up at the sparkling night sky, while overwhelmingly beautiful, have been fleeting. I could wish for more time, but if I did it would be for more time inside snuggling with the babies. Their childhood is way

Stretching the Corn Harvest

by Sadge, at Firesign FarmOld-timers' wisdom said to have your water boiling before you go out to pick corn for dinner. With today's super sweet varieties, the sugars don't convert to starch quite as quickly as the old heirloom corns did, so ears of corn nowadays do hold their sweet flavor longer. But nothing beats really fresh sweet corn, straight out of the garden in the summer.Birds and bees

First Fruits of Perennial Plantings

by Kate
Living The Frugal Life

It's likely we'll soon see the first tiny harvests from several of the perennial plants we put in over the last couple of years.  We took just a very modest harvest of asparagus in April, since our plants are now only two years old and so cannot support a full harvest.  Cherries, blueberries, grapes, elderberries and pears should also grace our table this year -

Volunteering and the Simple Life

By Notes From The Frugal TrenchesSomebody recently said to me if you are going to have a simple life you need to focus on you, yourself and I, that people must learn that simplicity is about focusing only on yourself, your home and your direct family. I found this quite an interesting, if not sad, perspective, I guess because I don't equate giving of oneself as complicating my life in any way. I

Thinking About Winter Already

by: Chiot's RunThe gardens here at Chiot's Run are full of all kinds of herbs for use in cooking. At the moment, I'm really enjoying using fresh chives, lemon balm, mint, bergamot, oregano and other herbs in my food and beverages.I'm also thinking about this winter when the garden will be sleeping under a blanket of snow and I'm stocking my pantry with dried herbs from the garden for both
