Lettuce is what we're harvesting right now. Enough for us and a neighbor or two. Raised beds.

The seeds mentioned, will they grow in AZ? Also would love to grow mushrooms but with the coming summer heat, doubt it will work. Do you know? Thanks for all the recipes and suggestions. Love your site. Coming to your site is like "going home to family." Blessings to you and yours.

Will have to check out the link for Earthbeat Seeds, thank you. I started my week off making a batch of lotion and lip balm to get through the New England winter. Have been going through my seeds and planning on what to plant this spring. Debating starting some seedlings or waiting another week. or two. After a mild start to the winter the snow and cold finally seem to be settling in here in CT.

Just wanted to say thank you for the post on how to make fromage blanc! I made it earlier this month after seeing your post, and otherwise never would have known how easy it could be. I used it in a delicious lasagna with farmer’s market veggies, and my own canned tomato and dried herbs. 🧀

I second the endorsement of High Mowing Seeds. Their organic white clover is a part of my pasture land and lawns around the house. I fill in any bare patches and/or areas where soil was disturbed/dug up for one reason or another, and even when these seeds have sat for several years, they germinate quickly. The deer and rabbits share my endorsement, and our horses before them.

Totally agree with Linda!

Is the raised bed picture your garden? (I know, probably obvious). . Any types of wood chips to avoid?

I did some winter mushroom hunting in Chicago suburbs and was SHOCKED to find a cluster of very large, frozen mushrooms growing from the ornamental mulch around a pavilion! I didn’t eat any. Not there yet. Big brown mushroom the size of portobello’s.

Hello everyone. Seen a cheese recipe once, for making provolone cheese that finishes in one or two months Has any of you gals tried this? Thank you. Seems, that I don't have a problem making the cheese, and it looks beautiful, but ageing it without the mold is the problem . Then its ruined...Thank you. dona
