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.

Older Pictures

I think these were all taken in the early Fall of 2003,
about a year after we moved to the Burrow.
Ozark Sunset

 the herb garden
My beloved herb garden.
I don't even remember everything I had growing back then. Many things have been lost since then and the garden has never recovered fully.

In the center is my sacred Jasmine.
I found it growing in an overgrown lot behind a Subways in Springfield about 8 years before this picture was taken. I thought I had lost it in the strange weather we've had but this year I found a tiny vine of it that still had some wik ! I replanted it and it's actually already starting to bloom again :) :) :)

Micheal and the mushrooms.
These were very cool, they grew like that overnight, stayed for several days, and we've never seen them since. I did find out what kind they were and that they're edible but I've forgotten now.

Beautiful sunsets. How wonderful that the Jasmine flourished after replanting.

Beautiful pictures Juli. There seems to be a moral to the story of the Jasmine when you stop and think about it.
