Hi Danette, ours keeps all winter long. I also usually make a double batch and freeze half of it. It holds up well to freezing!

A common theme on my camera and to-do list these days. Water, weed, bloom, repeat. Every time I blink another week has slipped past and I find myself wondering how on earth this summer is zipping by so quickly. It's just the pace of the days with a house mostly full of teenagers, mixed with the mama holding down an... Continue reading

I didn't even realize it until I was uploading pictures to this post that his shirt says "fly" right under the dragonfly wing - too funny!

Right?!? We watched the property for almost a full year before we bought it, so I kind of had an idea - - - - - - but looking at it through the eyes of it's caretaker is so different. I'm so in love!

We headed north last weekend and spent some time on the farm..... We cleared brush and hauled brush. It was damp and chilly, and we hiked the old logging trail to explore and warm ourselves up. Everything was a lush green and full of blossoms. Lots of little creatures on our many walks, so many blackberries and carpets of oregano.... Continue reading

If you missed out, there will be partial shares again in September and December. I'll let you know when sign-ups open for those. Today I wanted to share an adaptogen powder... Continue reading

I spent a good deal of time this winter trying to find a fresh herb CSA in our area. There is a lovely one in Western Massachusetts, but their drop offs were all in locations over an hour away from us. On Fridays. Which can get pretty crazy in the summer vacation traffic surge we see around here. My goal... Continue reading

Oh goodness. It’s been too quiet to be honest. It has been nice to get some things done, but I am looking forward to class tomorrow so I can chat with people - and that is saying something for an introvert gal ;)

A few pictures from my walk around the homestead this morning. Spring is being a show-off. Joe took the youngest two north to the farm for the weekend and I'm here with the big two. Which is almost like being alone for the bulk of the day as they run from work to friends.... I had a meeting Friday and... Continue reading

I love that you were paying attention enough to notice him. I think the universe hands us these little moments all the time and too often we let them go unseen, even if they are loud and noticeable, too caught up in ourselves to pay attention. (guilty here for sure!)

This is the pre-launch teaser for the project we have going on. We're starting a CSH : Community Supported Herbalism! Much like a vegetable CSA - Our CSH members will receive shares of handcrafted herbal goods at each change of the season to nourish and support them through the next one. We're already crafting up exclusive apothecary items made from... Continue reading

We’re hoping to have more for the next update - at least 8 or so! It will be much easier when we get the new bigger kiln up & running. Right now we can only fit 2 knitting bowls at a time in the small one, so it takes forever to get a set of them made! I can send you a sneak peek to pick one out next time too :)
