This blog contains 1000 posts. Posting to Blogger with such a large archive has become unwieldy. Also, your blogista, who is sewing a kesa, is not writing much at present. She has ceased adding new posts. Still-active links are here.

Turning inward

This is that time of year when, just to keep from falling in the mud and breaking something, one goes all domestic.

A kitchen garden is its own revolution

Control food and you control the people. -- Henry Kissinger
Grow it, pick it and eat it fresh. -- Risa Bear

To the extent possible, provide for yourself those things certain people would try to force you to buy from their cronies.

Time passes.

An attempt to make you dizzy.

A tour of the outbuildings

Over 21 years, we've come to appreciate and maintain the two sheds that came with the place and added several more. Much of the construction was done using boards, doors and windows from fences and sheds salvaged from our friends' places.

 The "barn," in particular, was an open-front shed in wretched condition when we got here, and a neighbor suggested we remodel it (and the house, truth be told) with a match. I did think to tear down the shed, but it had beams in the ceiling too heavy to be messed with. So it's been our barn, potting shed, and greenhouse ever since, with a little work.

Shown also are the woodshed, storage shed, tiny house, goat barn (still no goats) and the "zendo."
