Homemade Sausage

They say that sausage and legislating are two processes that you don’t want to witness. When you make your own sausage, however, you have complete control over the ingredients and the process. SHE and I have ground sausage by hand for years. We have used both a hand crank grinder and an attachment to our [...]

Now that I have fetched and toted what has seemed like tons of holiday greens and ingredients into our house and out again, it’s time to set things straight…time to get back to normal.

Take [...]

A Work In Progres

After struggling for many years and failing to have an edible garden in the patio, the recent craze for planting vegetables in the front yard encouraged us to give it a try.  Last year, we covered over the grassy section with mulch inoculated with mushroom mycelium, that regularly surprised us with Garden Giant mushrooms.  In [...]
