Me Made

November 7, 2015


Weekends mean bringing a great deal of work home with me since I took a job teaching 5th grade science and math this Fall. It’s the most intense, long-houred job I’ve ever held. Not unlike social service work, the good days are great and the bad days are pretty soul-crushing. This weekend, though, in addition […]

Fall 2014 Honey Harvest

September 3, 2014


In truth it is not just the fall honey harvest, but the only honey harvest of the year. Because we already are stealing our honeybee’s hard work, we try to minimize our impact somewhat by harvesting around August/September and unless the bees make an excess of honey between now and when it starts to dip […]

What’s the difference between a Yam and a Sweet Potato?

June 1, 2014


A guest post by Nate! OMG! This may be old news for some of you, may be interesting to others, or may be a snooze to still others (so I’ll keep the nerd speak to a minimum). I’ve recently read a number of blog posts, articles, and heard from folks some breakdowns of the subtle […]

cinnamon & chipotle pear sorbet

February 18, 2014


A recipe. A delectable, sweet-with-just-enough-kick sorbet to both say goodbye to winter and welcome the equally smack-you-in-the-face all of a sudden arrival of florida’s non-existent “spring” where it will go abruptly from the 60’s to the 80’s. I stole my recipe…ish. It was intended to be a jam. I even intended for it to be […]

Bagel, like it rhymes with waggle

February 16, 2014


This post is last since it was supposed to be a part of pin-along Saturdays with Tricia over at Farmish Momma, but I’ve never been good with deadlines, so I’m not sweating it now. I found a recipe for homemade bagels in this list of awesome looking breakfast foods over at A Beautiful Mess via […]

Burdock Root Troubleshooting

January 4, 2014


Does anyone have luck with burdock root? We got some to grow once, and we sauteed it in sesame oil with some other oriental-esque foods and it was one of the best things ever, but for whatever reason, we’ve had very poor luck getting any of our remaining burdock seeds (from several places and several […]
