Just a bit of blog news. I've added an index page for my harvest meal posts. I figured there's now a sufficient number of recipe sketches on the blog to warrant collecting them in one spot. It may be stretching credulity to call it the Recipe Index, but there it is. Maybe this will nudge me to post more recipes, or even more detailed recipes.
I live on a 2/3 acre homestead in a residential neighborhood. A major goal is to demonstrate how much food a non-expert can produce in my particular climate and hardiness zone, with the soils native to my immediate area. We have gardens of annual and perennial plants, keep laying hens and honey bees, and regularly bite off more than we can chew. Another major goal is to pay off our mortgage as fast as possible. Here I blog about frugality, self-reliance, gardening, cooking and baking, food preservation, practical skills, half-baked experiments, and preparing to thrive in a lower-energy future.
