From the Wife of a Worm Farmer - Invaded

I started writing this blog as a way to support my husband.  He’s worked so hard the past seven years to become a worm farmer and offer a superior product to local gardeners.  He loves what he does!  His Worm Grottos are his peaceful place.  If he’s home, he’s outside doing something with the gardens or the worms.  I know that if I can’t find him inside the house, all I have to do is peek out the back door.  His peace is my contentment.

Two weeks ago, all the Worm Grottos were…

So you want to try raising Meat Rabbits

First of all, I want to start by saying all rabbits are meat regardless of size.  Some just provide more than others. 

I decided to write about this subject after hearing so many stories of newbies buying un-pedigreed rabbits that don't produce, stay very small and have poor attitudes

When first getting in to rabbits most of what you are told is get New Zealand's and Californians.  These are great commercial rabbits they breed and grow fast.  As a back yard breeder you don't…

Update and hopefully up keep

I keep forgetting that the alliance, guild, whatever, is here. I seem to pop back in every now and then and check on things. 

  the new homestead is going well. Getting ready to raze the garden beds to get ready for a fall planting. (all 8 of them).

  We have switched focus on the rabbits. We now have japanese harlequins, American blues and one or two nz/ab crosses. Out are the Flemish and the pure new zealands. We're going to be forcusing more on the heritage breeds.…

Permie Home for Lease in Tempe!

Hi guys!

So some friends and I were very set on renting this beautiful, historic, permie-designed house on Apache and Dorsey in Tempe when all of a sudden, one roommate decided to flake out. Now, with each of us at a loss of $1000 deposit each, we will not get our money back unless someone takes the house soon.

We are super bummed about letting it go, but it would just be too much for 3 people to handle. It has a 3 bedroom house with a connecting studio that is…

#9: Interregnum

I'm down to my last month of total freedom before fall classes start. I've got all 4 compost bins going at full steam. and have started my fall planting. This slowed down the urbanite path project, but the seasons do not slow for my convenience.

I'll be cleaning the raised beds for Fall/winter planting next. This round is in-ground with frames. the squash is in the back, herbs in the front, and Sunflowers all around... eventually :D…
