Cards, Fermenting, Mixed Media, Story

How Romantic…

While we’re still technically in January, February is pretty much here.  I would have forgotten that means Valentine’s Day if I hadn’t treated myself to a getaway weekend in Belton, TX.  Belton, Texas you might ask?  It doesn’t really have too much going for it except their big convention center.  Why would I go there? Well, I’m delighted to announce that I bought tickets to go to the Annual Mother Earth News Fair. It is a collection of workshops and lectures for homesteaders and farmers.

I am beyond excited.  I have been checking in on speakers almost daily to see who has been added to the list.  Last year, I learned so much like how to start successfully fermenting things, which you can see I’ve been putting to good use by my last blog post.

So how is this romantic? Well, technically it’s not, but I absolutely love learning about homesteading, soil care, chicken raising, bee keeping, mushroom growing and more. Getting back to the point though…

Valentine’s Day! It’s something I’ve never been too keen on whether I’m romantically involved or not, but I get pretty excited about this little fruit and veg Valentine’s Day cards either way! You can take a look at the shop for more!

2 Doors

They say when one door closes another opens.  We all know it to be true.  That being said I would like to dedicate this post to Johnson’s Backyard Garden as a farewell.  I was with JBG for three years and have closed the door so to speak.  It saddens me quite a bit to move on, but the phrase, “My back hurts,” or “I’m getting too old for this,” seems to be flying out of my mouth on a a much more regular basis.  No worries, you will still find me in their booth at the farmers market every week filling my bag with delicious organic vegetables!  What can I say?  I’m hooked!  Wouldn’t you be with produce like this?

Below is a collection of photos that I have taken over the last year from various farmer’s markets I have worked!  Enjoy!
