I love gardening, and growing food, and making delicious meals with the garden bounty in harvest season and beyond.
I created this blog mostly to start documenting my garden activities for myself, and have now started expanding past that initial goal. I share information about growing food, preserving the food for winter and cooking up great meals, sometimes simple, sometimes more complex.
I grow organic, I don’t even like using organic pest control methods for the most part. My goal is to create a habitat that will attract the predators of the pests that bother my plants.
Sometimes all it takes is patience and trust in nature. Sometimes it takes the willingness to suffer losses to pests, until the garden ecosystem re-balances and the right predators appear.
Whenever I see some of my plants covered in aphids, I know it is only a matter of time until the ladybugs are on the scene consuming aphids voraciously.
