Green Tomato Bacon Jam

What do you do when the nights cool down, you've got plenty of tomatoes on the vine and they're not ripening?  Try this recipe for putting up green tomatoes in the form of Green Tomato Bacon Jam.  It's delicious as a sandwich spread, an appetizer, but my favorite way to enjoy it is mixed into ground meat for burgers.  …

Eco-Studio Idea

As I'd said in my last post, I'd been looking around a lot at different options for the future. Thinking about what I truly need, and I can do without. In reality, I really pretty much live 80% of my indoors time in this bedroom with attached bath (about 12x10, 5x7 bath). We've got a 32" TV, Roku player, laptop, books, etc in here. Otherwise, we cook, eat dinner at the table, and generally come right back in here! We've also got completely useless vaulted ceilings as…

Summer Pickle Platter Recipes

Here in Baltimore, beets are being harvested and the green beans are finishing up. It's time for pickles!

This pickle platter was made recently for a friend's barbeque. The chopped up pickles are great alongside meat and/or veggie burgers. They would also be lovely mixed in a cold pasta,…

I figured out a way to make my own sunflower seed bird feeder with recycled materials I scrounged from around the farm.  Besides not really costing me anything, I think it looks pretty snazzy, to boot.



Here's what you'll need:



Two empty cat or dog food cans,… Continue

Growing my own little sprouts

About a month ago I was tired of winter. The doldrums had me....well, feeling humdrum. I needed something green. Something needed to grow! Unfortunately nowhere around us sells seeds or sprouts so I hopped on the line and had some friends in Charleston, SC pick up some seeds at a local whole food-type…

Is Your Sustainable Life Sustainable?

I have been thinking a lot about sustainable living, and the so-called simple life lately. Dixiebelle wrote a self-flagellating post recently about her wicked fall into a fast food lunch, and in general about falling short of one's ideals.

Oh sweetheart.

I'm not particularly old (33) but I came to this "green consciousness" early, I think.…

Simple, Messy, Compost Pile

Hot is not how I would describe our family's backyard compost pile.  Wam, I hope.  Definitely not smelly, but not the hottest thing around.  The more I read how the experts explain composting, I don't think ours is cold or passive.  I do make an effort to turn it about once per week   But it's, well, simple at best.  My husband, skillful as he is, never found time to build one of those fancy corrals that some of you have.  At first, I thought we needed…
