Broccoli and spinach curry soup

  Last week, three of my friends/work colleagues fell ill with a cold or flu (the lucky ones). Not one, not two, but three in one go. There’s some nasty viruses going around this cold season and I thought it would be ever so kind of me to share this soup recipe with everyone. First, because it’s soup and so good during the colder weather. Second, because it is PACKED with so much goodness. So so many veggies that...

8 Canning Tips and Tricks for Modern-Day Home Canning

At some point in your homemaking journey — whether you’re a cook, gardener, or full-blown homesteader — you’ve probably learned how to preserve food. And for many people, boiling water bath canning is the gateway to all other food preserving. Though it requires more gear in the kitchen than, say, mason jar fermenting or oven dehydrating, there’s something about canning a batch of tomatoes, jams, or pickles that’s deeply satisfying. Maybe it speaks to our off-grid fantasies of being a...

When Is The Gardening Season Over?

By Kathy Purdy November 13, 2018 – Posted in: Garden chores I was complaining about our first snowfall on Facebook four days ago. A friend teased me, “Well, you are the cold climate gardener.” Oh, yes, I am a cold climate gardener and–I trust–a hardy soul. But this is the time of year when my heart says “Time to snuggle around the fire!” and my brain says “You still need to dig up the glads, empty all the pots, cut...

Ultra Moisturizing Natural Lotion Recipe

I like my lotions to be rich, moisturizing, and, above all else, natural. A good lotion can make your skin feel wonderful. As part of my switch to plant-based beauty products, I replaced all of my soaps, scrubs, and balms with organic and natural recipes that are skin-healing rather than just problem-masking. Those recipes are relatively easy to make with the simple steps of measuring the ingredients, melting them together, and pouring them into molds or containers. Lotions,...

Meet the Plantfluencers – Urban Organic Gardener

“Horticulture and red wine were served up the other night at the Sill, a boutique on Hester Street, as Christopher Satch, a botanist wearing a T-shirt that read, “Plants Make People Happy,” the company motto, led a workshop on carnivorous plants. It was plant stand-up — slightly blue patter with quick takes on Linnaeus and Darwin; binomial nomenclature (note the shape of the Venus fly trap for cues to how it got its name); detailed care instructions (carnivorous plants...

Book Review: Dry Gardens: High Style for Low Water Gardens

Not so long ago, a book about dry gardens in the U.S. would have featured cactus and rocks. Dry stuff indeed, except for the cactus aficionado. Over the past couple of decades, as drought and water shortages have led to a growing acceptance that thirsty lawns and traditional landscaping — i.e., plants better suited to the more temperate eastern half of the country — aren’t compatible with low-rainfall climates, gardeners have insisted on a greater variety of plants...
