Garden Harvest

One of our most satisfying strategies in adopting a whole foods diet has been growing our own! Having tasty, fresh food waiting to be harvested just outside the back door makes it easier to stay on track and enjoy maximum "just picked" nutrition with our meals...(read more)

Goodbye, Little Shed

Our shed demo project has moved right along this last month or so. The site is now completely cleared, and ready for the new Tiny Timberframe Studio! In case you missed the first few shots from this previous post, here is the whole sequence of demo images...(read more)

Crustless Quiche

Here's a favorite low-carb and grain-free quiche/egg bake recipe that we're enjoying quite often these days, paired with fresh-picked salad greens, and cherry tomatoes when we have them. So good, and so easy!

New Life for an Old Planter

Away from home often? Try a sub-irrigated planter! Sub irrigated planters have a water reservoir beneath the soil level that is fed from the top, using a …

In like a Lion…

Whew! What a night. Another Nor'easter ripped through here overnight, complete with thundersnow! The snow was wet and heavy, and we lost a number of trees and branches.
