"The Zesty salsa from the Ball book is good, but I like the Spicy Tomato Salsa better--it tastes more like fresh salsa and less like stewed tomatoes. It takes a smidgen more effort, but it's totally worth it. It makes 6–7 pints. 6 lbs.…"

"My other half assures me they (the beds) are 4 x 8. 3 of them are 12 inches high and the other 2 are 6 inches high. He's building me 2 more 1 1/2 by 6 beds. He's amazing - I think he's getting tired of mowing the lawn! I also have 10…"

Over planning

Ok - I seriously over planned my garden. I have 5 and a half raised beds (yes 1/2 - the other half will help roundout my growing compost pile) and I have all but 3/4 (half of one and a fourth of another) of them planted and I still have wwwwwaaaaaayyyyy more stuff to plant. :) I get the filling the rototiller is gonna be given a workout in the A.M.I'm feeling a little overwhelmed but it's nothing like what I feel at the office. This is a good 'overwhelmed'. :) I have nice weather for the next…See More

Cold Antler Farm

If you've never heard of Cold Antler Farm or Jenna Woginrich nows a good time to learn about this fiesty farmer doing the homegrown boogey. Check out her blog @ http://coldantlerfarm.blogspot.com. She's in something of a pickle right now and could use a little encouragement and moral support. No one should have to give up on a true dream of living a simpler life! I personally find her story inspiring - she's the reason I've given over to my… Continue
