Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

I'm behind again but who cares, as long as everyone is healthy and happy :)

We haven't been able to paint the last few days because of rain but the gardens are doing well with it.

I'm letting the current greenbeans dry on the plant because I don't have a pressure cooker yet. Dry beans are very easy to cook with too.

This evening we're going to try and make it to the Farmers market :) I hope someone will have local honey and blueberries.

I have a tea order to get out and some ham, egg n cheese burritos to make and who knows after that :)

I thinned my hair two days ago and went a little crazy and it looks odd and kind of scraggly, I may end up just cutting it short this time *o*

anyway, merry day :)

Have an awesome weekend, J! We're off to the wilderness tonight. And I'm sure your hair looks fine! =)

There's nothing better than fresh green beans from the garden, unless it would be fresh tomatoes on the side.

My mother always raised enough in her gardens to put enough up to last her through the winter and then more to give away. She would can some of her green beans to give away to friends and family that didn't live real close, but the real treat was what she pulled out of the freezer. She would blanch her green beans and then freeze them. When she pulled them out to cook, they tasted fresh from the garden.

Have a wonderful Friday.
