Förutom en sväng in till mamma med kvällsmat och ren tvätt så har hela dagen gått åt till att rädda sånt som inte tål frost. I natt ska det bli ett par minusgrader. För ett litet tag sen var jag ute och tittade på solnedgången. Fladdermössen svischade runt huvudet och luften kändes helt annorlunda. Nu är köket fullt med grönsaker att ta vara på och hallen är proppfull med krukor med fikon, oliver, citroner, dvärggranatäpple, paprikaplantor som ska få en chans att bli lite rödare m.fl.
Sen är det alla dom där kryddorna som måste övervintra inne och en gigantisk hibiskus. Så småningom hittar dom sina övervintringsplatser men nu är det kaos...
Tonight there's going to be frost for the first time this autumn and I've been harvesting all day. Now it's chaos in the kitchen and at the entrance with all the pots that has to spend the winter inside.
The best way to add the essential oil for the benefit of the vegetable or fruit plant is to add the oil to water. You can mix 6 drops of the companion essential oil to 2 gallons of warm water, then let it cool. Fill your watering container half full with the essential oil water, then top it off with cold water, stir again and water as usual.

Homesteading in a camper isn't always easy. Take this lonely little pepper for instance........:
We had attempted to clear an area for a small garden (by small I mean tiny). However, our tomatoes got flooded in a near month long storm. Our cucumbers only grew the size of a small cat toy ball (and only like 5). Our basil did great! The pepper plant bombed. Our green onions we planted from ends are still growing. Our collards recently tanked.
Sadly, these things happen some times. We have to adjust and shift based on how things unfold. And it's just like anything in life really.
You can't get upset when everything doesn't go your way. If you do you'd likely be upset all the time. .
Just some food for thought. .
We wanted to amend the soil around this deck but didnt want to do a lot of work or pay money for soil. So, we put our food scraps there all year. This kept the weeds down but the seeds from all the different squash that we ate, loved it and we ended up with a huge squash bed! As a result of cross pollination, we've been getting all kinds of surprise varieties. I thought I was going to have to make a ton of zucchini bread with this one, but turns out it was a delicious hard squash! #slowgardening#permaculture#growyourownfood#foodforthebees

Going grain free is a pretty popular diet trend these days and while there are certain people who I absolutely think this may be good for, I really don’t believe that grains are out to harm us
Here is why...virtually every single major civilization was built on grain. Asia was built on rice, Central America on Corn, North America on Wheat
There are literally hundreds of thousands of varieties of these grains and yet most people only ever consume one variety
I don’t believe for one second that humans weren’t meant to process grains and this is coming from someone with celiac disease. We have been consuming grains for thousands of thousands of years, yet all of a sudden people seem to be intolerant and allergic to them.
So what happened? Well a conventional food system happened that prioritized processing and shelf life over nutrition, taste, and variety
So maybe it’s not the grains at all, maybe it’s what we did to them and now it’s time to fix it. My advice...rather than going grain free (unless you medically are required to such as with avoiding wheat with celiac disease), try and incorporate a variety of REAL whole grains in your diet
Find a local artisan baker who uses a variety of whole grain flours and notice the difference 🌱 More on this topic coming soon 🌾
