For Emma (not sure if my email got back to you) who asked about adapting my Toasted Muesli recipe to not be toasted, and without the coconut oil and maple syrup. I tried this today & it's actually quite good! Chewier, is all.
Raw Muesli | Gluten Free, Oat Free, Low FODMAP
Makes 6 to 7 cups
1 cup Puffed millet
1 cup Puffed rice
1 cup Puffed amaranth
1 cup Puffed quinoa
1 cup nuts (pecans, Macadamias, walnuts)
1/2 cup pepitas
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup coconut flakes or shredded coconut (depending on your tolerance)
Break or chop up nuts, if you prefer. Mix all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container.

DIY fermented liquid feed. Submerge organic matter under water for 2 weeks then dilute at a rate of 1 part feed to 5-10 parts water depending on how bad it smells. We fill an old onion bag full of chicken and goat shit, random weeds and 'compost activating' plants like comfrey, borage and burnet to name a few - these are plants that have the ability to take nutrients locked up deep in the soil (that the standard plant would be unable to reach) and store the elements in their leaves. By using the leaves in the liquid feed or compost the nutrients are transferred into an easily digestible form for the microbes in the soil, making the originally unavailable nutrients now absorbable for plants that need a feed.
Apples and ABC (Almond, Brazil, Cashew nut) spread is the answer!

Chickens At Work... preparing ground for planting. It's a chicken-human team effort. What the chickens can't handle - waist-high grass and thick stem masses, humans cut. What humans can't do well - eating grass and seed and pooping freely all day, chickens handle. They're also better at tilling with their little claws and beaks with the motivation to find bugs keeping them at it.
Their little coop tractors are moved each day and every few days they're free to roam - although they rarely range more than 5 metres from the coops anyway.
In spring grains and corn go here and the chickens are transferred to the next overgrown bit of jungle. No machines, no fossil fuels. Slow and small solutions.
Good morning/evening 🌞🌝. This is a volunteer #potato plant grown from peels in my pepper bed. I have at least a dozen of plants growing from potatoe peels in my garden. I transplanted some of them into a rise bag and an old bucket and lef the others where they are. Hopefully they will not affect my peppers and tomatoes.
صباح الخير 🌞. هذه نبتة بطاطا نمت تلقائيا من قشور #بطاطا موجودة في التربة. عندي على الأقل دزينة من نبتات البطاطا نمت بهذه الطريقة في أماكن مختلفة. نقلت البعض منها إلى كيس أرز و سطل قديمين و تركت الباقي في مكانه. أرجو أن لا تأثر على النبتات المحيطة بها.
Enjoying this traditional Memorial Day treat couldn’t be simpler.
Place unopened ears of corn with the silks and husks into pot and cover. Cook for 1 1/2 hrs.
If the corn doesn't fit into the pot, cut the top end off. How do you garnish you corn on the cob? Plain sweet goodness, butter, salt, chili powder, or other?!
Micro Bird Chilli Plant: This Chilli plant grew by itself in our garden. It must be brought in by birds. It grew more than 5 feet tall !
Suddenly, this plant is showing lack of iron. I have to treat it immediately, otherwise it will eventually die. #birdchilli
Iron deficiency in plants causes leaves to turn yellow. #irondeficiency
All plants need iron nuitrient to function. #permaculture
Without iron, the plant simply cannot function as well as it should. #horticulture The leaves turn yellow, but the veins of the leaves stay green. #communitygardens
In severe case, the yellow effect will work its way to older leaves as the iron deficiency gets worse.
Just like I always did in the past, I am going to pour some rusty iron nails water and burry a few nails on the ground. Wham! It works wonder !k
Dear Mrs or Mr Rattle Snake,
I'm writing to humbling and respectfully inform you that in effort to foster a world wide culture of nature worship, I will occassionally be mildly disturbing your territory, but only to ultimately build much much more of it.
I will do my best not to step on you and your fellows. Please give me fair warning if I come too close by shaking your rattle loudly.
Got to check out our hives today with Kneal, an uncle in law of sorts, he and his wife rescue swarming hives, and hives that have set up shop where they are not welcome. She makes home and body products from the wax that are delicious! You can get their products, labeled little heathen honey, at the Jacksonville Market. We are fortunate to house a few of their hives at Angel Farms. The hives are looking happy and healthy and even ready to spin some honey here soon! We are happy, the bees are happy, the plants are happy, everyone wins. #symbiosis#honeybees#angelfarms#littleheathenhoney#shoplocal#supportlocal#organichoney#permaculture
Pulling ashore onto the stunning Olympic Peninsula at Port Townsend, Washington. Bill Mollison helped establish some of the older permaculture farms in the US around these parts 30 or so years ago. Looking forward to playing to some permie-pioneers at the gig at @finnriver in Chimacum tomorrow night!
