We’re real tree kind of people. We love nature and the outdoors, and like to do things ourselves. Just the type of people who go out every year and cut their own Christmas tree, right? Ummm. No. Well, there was that one Christmas when we lived in the country and went out and cut a tree. […]

Do you save seeds from your garden? Saving seeds is not a strong point for me, but I do save seed from my heirloom tomatoes, and from some of my flowers. I was trying to come up with a way to use some of my seeds in a Christmas ornament and decided to make seed […]

How to Make Hickory Bark Syrup http://learningandyearning.com/hickory-bark-syrup http://learningandyearning.com/hickory-bark-syrup#comments Thu, 04 Dec 2014 15:32:58 +0000 http://learningandyearning.com/?p=8768 a natural living site

I’ve been interested in foraging most of my life. The problem is, except for picking wild berries, I rarely did it. But the bug has hit me hard the past year or two. I think I might love it more than gardening. And that’s saying a lot. What’s not to love about being out in the woods and […]

What Homesteader Chicks Want For Christmas http://learningandyearning.com/homesteader-chicks-christmas http://learningandyearning.com/homesteader-chicks-christmas#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 22:00:10 +0000 http://learningandyearning.com/?p=8674 a natural living site

I had a fun, online, conversation recently with some homesteader “chicks”. Some, like me, are urban homesteaders. Others have lots of acreage. And we got to chatting about what we want for Christmas. There wasn’t a bottle of perfume on the list, although chocolate, a cute sweater, and a date night did make the cut. […]

Are you a fan of black walnuts? The taste is decidedly different from English walnuts. Most people either love them or hate them. I think they’re an acquired taste. This fall has been a great one for foraging. It seems that everything is in abundance, including the black walnuts which we forage along a public […]

What a great holiday; a day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens” as proclaimed by Abraham Lincoln. And I have so much for which I am thankful.

Who would expect that a book on foraging would open up a whole new way of thinking? I mean, foraging is foraging, right? Just go out and discover what is edible and give it a try. Katrina Blair, author of The Wild Wisdom of Weeds, takes foraging seriously and has been doing so all her life. But […]
