Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Here at the PTF urban homestead not only does one have to deal with everyday urban homestead life – there’s the ongoing outreach efforts.
I know many of our LHITC readers would like more postings of daily happenings here on the urban homestead. I ditto your sentiments exactly! However, this year we have committed in expanding our outreach (which we feel will inspire and help even more people – at the ground level in communities across the world) So with that on the agenda and until Jordanne gets the Freedom Garden community blog and rss feed plugin, I’ll be posting FG announcements here.
We have a lot on our plates at this time, so please bear with us as we grow through, once again, some growing pains. Like any project that’s in its infancy, lots of care and attention are needed to be given to it until it’s able to walk on its own (and we hope that can happen with your commitment and involvement!).
Thank you for those who have written and offered positive feedback and support. Your comments mean a lot to us, and we appreciate them. We still have some other exciting projects to go (in the works) – so stay tuned.
In the meantime, life on the urban homestead grows on…. and, hopefully, I can get around to sharing such stories soon.
Like Estella stuffing her face full of bugs and getting a case of chicken hiccups. Or pictures of all the beautiful volunteer pumpkins and squashes that Justin has “tagged” (excuse the LA ghetto slang). The state of the garden is so lush that you are going to need a machete just to get through. Planning for the state of our water future here in the West. Stuffing our faces full of fresh fruits – strawberries, peaches, grapes and apples! Rescuing an abandoned puppy, handling our clients’ orders, getting ready for another film shoot (today). Keeping on top of crop rotation and succession plantings. Sketching out the urban homestead social network site, wrapping up Freedom Gardens, finally getting around the upgrading the main PTF site with more in depth urban homesteading information, getting ready for our monthly gathering on Saturday (yeah!), answering emails, handling the upcoming event reservations, doing some connecting, setting up another volunteer to our staff (welcome K!), tallying the costs of our daily meals and much, much more.
Where do I even begin to formulate all the happenings into readable content?
Hmmm, how about I just hang out the animals. So, I’ll be out back, under the shade of pomegranate trees, just chillin’ with the critters, collecting and uncluttering my thoughts. Perhaps a coherent post will formulate out from the jumble…. Or perhaps our readers can help! What would you like to read about?
