“Earth is crammed with heaven
And every bush aflame with God
But only those who see take off their shoes.”
— Elizabeth Barrett Browning, poet
April just on whooshed by and brrr is it ccccold.
Spring just up and left, it feels like December – we got over 5/8 of inch or rain and can you believe there’s snow on them thar mountains. I think that’s a FIRST!
With Amy, our duck (who’s still hanging in there btw – more on “Amiac” later) definitely no “spring break” for us farmers that’s for sure. April is a “make or break” month where the summer garden comes together not to mention host of community happenings as folks commemorate the 40 year anniversary of Earth (Stewardship) Day.
Lots can be said, lots can be written (and are being said and written — LHITC has been feature on Ooh.com & Greenopolis.com ) but I’ll just let these photo montage speak for itself as we celebrate and are thankful for the daily blessings of creation.
Sharing our blessings/journey with others. Here sis and I show off our “low impact-country” kitchen
Our local KNBC 4 did a brief segment on the urban homestead for their “Green is Universal” week. Unfortunately they haven’t put it online for those who didn’t see it air yesterday during the 5 o’clock news.
Front yard farming
Squash ready for planting in the raised beds
Tomatoes growing on up
Another “mother” scooby – homebrew kombucha!
Busy in the kitchen
