Season Two, Episode 201--Creating a New Habit

The Podcast returns with some history of my older podcast -At the Kitchen Table- and the plan for moving on from here. The plan is for this to become a weekly podcast. I’m sure there will be schedule conflicts. By subscribing to this podcast via iTunes or your favorite podcast provider you will be notified as soon as the next episode drops. Of course you can always listen here and find show note links.

In this episode:

Coming back to it—some from the past and more to the future

Big Projects—new bar, new food co-op

Summer Solstice approaches—The Wheel of the Year explained

On the Plate and in the Garden—food from the garden and farmers market

From the Chicken Coop—connect at the local Hoodland farmers market or ask about what’s not online

Creating healthy Habits—habits I’m trying to bring back in like yoga and yarn spinning, for you start a writing practice by taking a course from Cynthia Morris (ironically I didn’t even think of returning to recording as starting a healthy habit)

Animal Tales—oh that naughty bunny

Episode 105--Soap Box

In this week's episode I do get up on my soap box about living a life of connection beyond politics. I suggest a few other podcasts that can help with that. Check out For the Wild, On Being, Dream Freedom Beauty, The Herbal Highway and Herbal Radio.

The other soap box I climb up on in what we put into our body; both food and medicines. 

I share the recipe for the Asparagus pesto I posted on Instagram yesterday, benefits from steeping herbal infusions for longer periods of time and living a life in Gratitude.



Episode 104--In the Garden


In the Garden, The Chicken Coop, and our sweet old trailer-Ole Lil. Spring has finally Sprung up on our little bit of Mt Hood!

A lot of this episode deals with the last month in the garden. Once it stopped raining everyday I have been almost non-stop in the garden trying to get caught up. And now we are ready for summer! Two herb nurseries I talk about in this podcast are Strictly Medicinal and Crimson Sage.

I'm finally back to knitting on a more regular basis than I have been for a few years. Plain ole vanilla socks are on the needles in BMFA "Spike". Check out that fun colorway. There is a bit of white in between interesting color stripes. I'll post a pic on Instagram.

There is a product description of our Bug Balm. Newsletter subscribers receive a free sample with order until June 23rd. You can sign up at the top of our website. Just click the envelope. This repellent is working great here in the mountains, the Oregon coast and as far away as Florida with great results for flies on the horses as well as people.

I felt like I ended a bit abruptly today. Thank you all for listening and subscribing:)
