And I welcome my other fellow food preservers to come out of the closet and proclaim your mad skillz to the world.And I don't know about you but I've been singing Jam On It when I'm making jam. And perhaps also doing the cabbage patch. So here have a tote.If you want one, I've put them up in shop.It was Oregon Tayberry jam this weekend. Yum. Tayberries are more floral in flavor, and make for delicious jam. So now…See More

Our front yard garden

There's something completely rewarding to step out front and pick our lunch. Lettuce, chives, herbs are all producing in the garden and landing in the salad bowl. I really should count the amount of steps from kitchen to vegetable bed. I don't think I'd need to carbon offset those steps, would I? Oh sweet sarcasm. Let's do it visually.Go here:Get this:I may or may not have jazzed up that salad with homemade pickled beets, toasted walnuts, cherry tomatoes, and feta after I took that photo. Chive…See More

A bit about me:
Recovering workaholic, rediscovering simplicity. I do it myself, or figure it out, or think about things differently now. Most of the time. Not all of the time.

I'm a consultant on communications, graphic design and branding for non-profits and government agencies and I love what I do and who I do it for. My clients are social change agents.

I garden like a fiend and write about it for a regional queer newspaper.

I sew when I can, and I barter for goods as it happens. I can what we grow and more from local farmers. And I cook from scratch as much as possible.

It's a whole new world.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Using up all of the great goods canned last season, made a great chili with the canned chili sauce.
Currently reading:
Utne Reader
Currently listening to:
Avett Brothers
My latest DIY project:
Our garden: it's in constant need of attention. And work!
