Everything Old is New Again
Finances were tight when I was a young married woman and sometimes the only ingredients I had on hand to feed my family came from the garden. In the fall I froze the surplus to last through the winter. I also had an herb garden and spent a lot of time learning about the properties of various herbal remedies. I baked bread from scratch.
I'm a grandma now and it would seem that live is coming full circle. These days my focus is shifting to the quality and the source of the food that we eat. I buy organic produce and absolutely will not buy the feed-lot meat that I used to buy.
It was a beautiful, warm, and sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest yesterday. The perfect day for putting together the new compost and sowing some seeds. I even spent some time outside digging in the dirt cleaning out flower beds.
