Snippets of my life

Living Green to me is simple-it's living simply.  Growing your own food,  adding some seasoning (fresh herbs)  drinking tea from your garden.  It eliminates the whole package, production, going to the market (gas), and really makes you look around and enjoy the simple pleasure of noticing life in the essence of it's being.  When you live this way you'll totally understand what I'm talking about.  It's so peaceful and satisfying.

The Harvest is at the bottom,  and it should really be the first photo.  Then I wanted to share with you what I do with the harvest...This one is yarrow drying without water, the canterbury bells and candy tuff are fresh flowers.

                               Chocolate Mint awaiting boiling water for tea.
                              Oregano and tarragon drying in the living room.
                                   An outdoor bouquet of cat mint in an old bucket.
                        The harvest...The garlic is now braided and hanging in my kitchen, and the veggies went into a pasta salad.
Thanks be to God!
