I’m Back in Business!
Thank you everyone for your patience while my website was having technical difficulties. It was extremely frustrating and took 2 months to fix. I ended up moving the site and rebuilding it from scratch and it was a long, hard (and expensive) road. Thanks to my friend Jayme who saved the day in the end and got me back online. (We are still making minor tweaks/fixes)
It just seemed as if the universe was working against us every step of the way as we had roadblock after roadblock and each barrier took days or weeks to fix. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back!
I have several posts in the cue for the next week or two. But I also wanted to share the projects I have been working on:
More Canning & Preserving on PBS
As most of you know, I am the Co-Executive Producer of PBS Gardening series, Growing A Greener World and the homesteading/canning expert for the show. We are currently in production for season 4 and THIS year, we are expanding the canning and preserving information both on line and in the series!
I just finished filming 13 mini-canning videos that will be posting on the Growing A Greener World website throughout the summer and I will be appearing on some of the S4 episodes. Plus I have a series of featured canning posts that include time-saving tips and unique ideas for saving the season in a jar. Everything launches in less than a week and there will even be a new website design to go with the new season. Exciting stuff! Keep an eye on the “Canning Blog” listing here on LivingHomegrown (at the bottom of this website in the orange footer below) to see the latest posts as they go live.
Restoring the 1892 Farmstead
I am still managing the 1892 farmstead property in Northern California for my family. I have been working hard on the antique fruit orchard (pruning and controlling the pests organically) and we have installed raised beds in the kitchen garden. Watch for posts on that as well.
My Urban Homestead
I have been doing some expansion of my food growing areas here at home. I removed my train garden in the center of my vegetable garden so that I could have more room to plant edibles. I will be posting on weed control and tricks for getting height and interest in a food garden.
So – We have a lot of catching up to do! Be sure to that you are signed up for my newsletter so you don’t miss anything.
It’s great to be back!
