hi there! so nice to hear from you! we DO have a lot in common! ha ha! except you are spending way more time in the garden than i am these days. (for various reasons) i need to figure out which project to take on to get me back in to the dirt. :)
i'm about to start reading my co-workers film script and then on to Catcher in the Rye. what are you reading now? i tend to skim non-fiction and devour fiction. i learn a lot about gardening and being good to the earth/environment on the web and thru Green Wish where i'm just starting to volunteer.
the name of the bands (and Willie) that you listen to makes me think we probably have crossing music tastes, too. :) but i mostly listen to quiet...ahhhhh, quiet...and NPR. ha ha (i'm a little noise sensitive :/ )
Okay, so let's swap favorites!
Books - The Secret Life of Bees, Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, ...more to come
beasts is so well done. ...and now i have to see Alamar! i don't even remember it passing through our indie theatres. thank you for sharing! ...and TI sounds crazy! i'll add it to my list! :) ...i haven't read the classic either. ;) ha ha
Hey Jennifer, Thanks for the welcome. I'm looking forward to a HOMEGROWN experience on a regular basis. Sorry you only have a digital flock, when you come to Maine, you can get a warm and fuzzy real life tending experiences with the goat ladies and the sheep babes. I'm getting some new shots of the garden as it is now, a little more growth on it since the sheep shearing back in June. One of the benefits of that little escapade was I now have Delphiniums blooming in almost August! So, will post as soon as I get a sec to land in the garden patch after chores. I'll also check out The Stew, on a daily basis, with goats it's an adventure so happy to share the life and times of the Bittersweet herd with other members who I'm sure will relate to life with goats.
I'll be working on getting more familiar with HOMEGROWN in a few days when I get a couple of days to catch up. We just had Open Farm Day in Maine last Sunday and I'm still catching my breath from getting ready for it, keeping up with our weekly waterfront Community Market and a bazillion other things!
Again, thanks for the welcome and I'll be back on as soon as I get my cheese molded up, the girls milked, the sheep rounded up, collect eggs, make another batch of Lavender Soap, bake some more Goat Cheese Blueberry Tarts...............
You better watch out, the longer you stay, the more I figure out you can help with! LOL So, I don't do turn down service but will be glad to see you in person. I had someone in the spring who was trying to lose weight ask me how I stay so slim. I said...follow me around for a week and you'll find out. She said...open the farm to Farm Boot Camp for those of us who need to get in shape...sign me up....I'll be your fist camper! Too funny but may be a way for more people to experience first hand the daily life of growing your own food, living with animals, the process of turning raw product into finished. Hummmm.....Sounds like a winter think tank project to me. So, give me the heads up when you're coming and I'll get the girls all ready for a humdinger visit. I'll sharpen up the pitchfork for ya!
I have! I work right next to an independent movie theatre, so I run over there after work whenever I get a chance! It's very good! I'll refrain from saying anything else since you haven't seen it yet! :)
Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your reply. I feel as though fermentation may be a door to new world of possibility for me, ever more I am looking forward to connecting with other who share this interest; so, would you know how I could get in touch with Home Grown members on Cape Cod, as you know I would like to find a source for Kefir seeds, but my whole interest is burgeoning and therfore have lots to ask and talk about.Online is OK, but in person is better. If there is a community of fermentaion enthusiasts on Cape Cod I would like to join up, if not, perhaps I could start one. There is so so much to know but I have always found that doing is the best way to learn and grow? So, what do you know? I appreciate your organization, look forward to learning more. Leigh
Hi Jennifer, Thank you for the kind welcome! It looks to be a good group....glad to be on board. I'll be harvesting my hops pretty soon, and brewing up some IPA for those cool Fall nights (they can't come soon enough, it's 108 degrees here today!)
