"Best of luck! The good think about the homesteading community is that it's a lot of work but the cheapest way to live, and perhaps you can barter or trade with people for needed goods or support."

CSA Cookoff: Best-Kept-Secret Pecan Pie

"I've got two of these in the oven right now!  Same recipe as yours.  This is the first time I've made them at this elevation (6,000 ft)--I'm curious what will happen.   I also like to toss another half cup or so of nuts…"

Homesteading on Hold

Blue Grama Grass There are many homesteading-related projects I want to move forward with but I'm holding back because I need to wait until I find out what the state of my finances will be for the next year or so.  Right now I'm living off of money from salary continuance from my university during a three-month sick leave.  After those three months, the money stops unless I get approved…See More

MisAnthrope commented on Matt Volz's blog post 'What I strive for (what homesteading means to me)'
"Hi Matt,  I enjoyed your post and share your idea of homesteading.   I read a great essay awhile back by Bob Black  called The Abolition of Work.  Some of its kind of wordy, but you might enjoy it.  It ties in to your…"

Clothespins, Socks, and Reflections of Those Things at Dusk

I have many thoughts about the election and the results, but I'm still cogitating about it all, so instead I'll share a few photos I took this evening.  One of the things I'm most enjoying about this new rural, off the grid life is washing and drying clothes by hand. The washing, hanging, and folding have come to be a kind of meditative practice for me, one that's galaxies away from my old practice of just a few months ago:  shoving handfuls of dirty clothing into the washer in the mold- and…See More

"Thanks, Jennifer!  I've put the de-spining on hold.  I'm now learning to make bread.  "

"Wow! I almost feel like I'm there—and wish I were, although your pictures are a pretty amazing substitute. Thanks for sharing them. Have you tried de-spining any more cactus? Any luck?"

Monarch on Mexican Sunflowers

"These flowers were growing in the garden of the house I'm renting.  I'd been wondering what they were!  Thanks for the id.  And I love the colors in this photo.  Beautiful!"

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 bluish-purple like this:…See More

Cornelia commented on MisAnthrope's blog post 'Adventures in Foraging'
"Here's a helpful suggestion from the Facebook page: Erica Junghans Pam Peirce ("Golden Gate Gardening") says one should just drop the pad on --and roll it in-- sand. I never tried it myself, but it makes sense that, if the thing…"

MisAnthrope commented on MisAnthrope's blog post 'Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt'
"Thanks, Cornelia!  What worries me is that both main party candidates, at least in the debates, promoted  the use of drilling for oil on public lands and said nothing about the effects of using fossil fuels on the environment, and little…"

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:

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!
