Hi Kay! That code goes in your order comments (versus coupons). Its not a proper coupon as well be adding a little bonus to your box. I hope that helps. Thanks so much for your order!

Toggle Commented yesterday on Free LuSa gift with any order at Clean.
Place any LüSa Organics order this weekend and add a note of "Weekend Blog Freebie" and we'll add a free gift to your order. The more you buy, the bigger your gift! It's a small way for me to say... Continue reading

Unless you, too, once dropped a pot of warm maple syrup onto the kitchen floor you may not accurately estimate the distance and trajectory covered by the airborne syrup. No need to repeat my experiment to find out for yourself.... Continue reading

So glad you joined us Teresa! I'm so down with the enthusiastic gelling. It was perfection.

I will, Lisa!

Remember in Little House on the Prairie when Laura and Mary open their stockings on Christmas morning? They get a single peppermint and a pair of red mittens. And they are over the moon with joy. The first time I... Continue reading

When I left for the retreat last Thursday there was snow on the ground and winter in the air. Just four days later I returned to warm sunshine and crocus buds pushing up through the earth. With the timing of... Continue reading

Oh, goodness. Where to begin! I returned last night after the Spring Women's Herbal Retreat both exhausted and elated. The weekend exceeded my expectations in every way - primarily on account of the ladies who came together to share in... Continue reading

Truth! Human, wooly, and otherwise. x

I have so many things to share with you - from the latest Taproot to a couple of just-cast-off knitting projects, some homeschooling reflections, homesteading updates, and other projects in the works. But all of that will have to wait!... Continue reading

Some of you will recall our first lambing year. Uffda. My heart hurts just remembering. It was a brutal "welcome" to farming brought on by our (read: my) blind optimism and enthusiasm for all things wooly. New to sheep, we... Continue reading

Wonderful, Donna! Thanks for the suggestion. I will certainly share this with Sage. Lake Superior is quite possibly his favorite place on earth.
Toggle Commented Mar 10, 2017 on Postcard 6: Seashell school at Clean.
March suddenly got wintery-cold once more, so I thought it was the perfect excuse for another postcard from somewhere beachy and warm. Don't you agree? Besides, postcards always arrive after we've returned home anyway. This is a story about seashells,... Continue reading

I'm shameless in it for the yarn. And since it just doesn't seem right to snag that subscription for myself, I'll be sure to donate it to our local library if I chance to win. :-) Big hugs, friend.

This is Ruby. She is an all-white Corriedale/Polypay ewe. Well, almost all white. She does have these subtle grey polka dots on her ears, nose, and lips. They're faint, but if you know what you're looking for you can see... Continue reading

Some years springtime comes early and tapping comes late. This combination, of course, boils down to less syrup in the pantry come next season (see what I did there?). But that's just how things shook out this year. I can't... Continue reading

First, your response to yesterday's post was beautiful and encouraging. Thank you. Pete is still feeling awful, but the kids seem to be rebounding. I'm grateful. Second, a quick reminder before we all head into the weekend. It's almost Treasure... Continue reading

My whole family has the flu. First Sage, then Pete, now Lupine. All three are still in the thick of it. And I'm worn thin today from caring for these sick ones the past few days, while juggling all the... Continue reading

Lovely... we were going to put taps in this weekend but the dreaded February Flu arrived, so we're hoping to do it in the next few days. I can't wait.

I haven't ventured into dry ice yet but I've been tempted!

I love pressure cooked roasts and tend to modify my slowcooker recipes for the IP. Pulled pork carnitas, chicken tacos, balsamic pot roasts... that sort of thing. I also love it for broth-cooked grains in a hurry. I hope that helps!

Oh Margaret, I wish that I had, too! They were so sweet. And surely inspired a bit by you along the way!

Homesteading moves to a feast-or-famine rhythm. And while I hardly consider myself a homesteader anymore (having bailed on both raising meat birds and keeping a garden last summer), we do still grow a bit of our own food. Today, in... Continue reading

So sweet Mathidle. I'm happy to inspire your crafting binges, peg dolls especially!
