Growing things.


So I’ve been busy lately.

Not a lot of energy for blogging (building a human is a bit tiring, apparently).

But I was inspired to go to a meeting of local folks interested in food and farming today. It was lovely to see so many different people ready to start new local food projects!

Maybe I will be motivated to blog, now that I’m about to have an infant to take care of. (I never claimed to make sense.)

    Beautiful! Such exciting news.
    You’re right…growing humans IS very tiring…so is producing enough milk to feed them. Sleeepppp and enjoy those supportive herbs.

    Sending blessings for a blissful pregnancy!

    Oh, how wonderful! I find pregnancy – and nursing and parenting! – to bring out the latent herbalist in me. Such a beautiful time for nourishing, building-up, tending and growing. Happy, blessed pregnancy to you! And thank you for your great blog.

    Tough to find the flavor in a store bought herbs. The best herbs I have had the pleasure of tasting & smelling was grown in my backyard. Kelp4less helped me.

    I do like the way you have framed this particular challenge and it does indeed give me some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, through just what I have personally seen, I simply trust when other opinions stack on that people today keep on point and don’t embark on a tirade involving the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this exceptional point and though I do not necessarily agree with it in totality, I regard the viewpoint.

    Hi! I understand that is kinda down matter although I’d realized I’d request. Do you be interested in changing links or even guest writing a new blog post or maybe vice-versa? Our weblog explains a lot of the exact same issues since the one you have in addition to I really believe we could greatly reap the benefits of the other. If you happen to possibly be curious experience liberated to capture me a good e-mail. We count on experiencing coming from you! Good blog mind you!

    I’m going to start my blog rapidly however I’m a little misplaced upon almost everything. Do you advocate starting with a no cost platform including WordPress or perhaps get a paid out selection? You can find countless options on the market in which I’m totally perplexed.. Virtually any tips? Thank you lots!
