"Bah, this is annoying to no end. I am still in shock that their behaviour was/is condoned by anyone. Good for you for doing all the work to get this out there! XO"

"We are so lucky in our town when it comes to meat.  There are two butchers in town. One is more of a traditional style but ALL of the meat in the shop is sourced from Vancouver Island. And a lot of it is local (minus the sandwich…"

"Good for you for wanting to save your seeds! This is one of the most empowering things we can do for ourselves, our families, community, and ultimately the planet! Squash need to be isolated to ensure OP (open pollinated seed), i.e. no cross…"

I'm proud to say we've eaten around 50% of our stash, but still have 4 acorns, 2 butternuts, and 1 delica to go. And I only have 2 weeks left! YIKES! anyway, below is one of my posts on seed saving. it's a beginner's guide, that's for sure because i'm just learning too! XO…See More

And then I started craving gingerbread and the rest is history.There aren't a lot of zucchini gingerbread recipes out here on the internet. I found…See More
