Farmer Em in late July

Today I pruned some shrubs, cleared a patch of ground for future vegetable gardening, planted an apple tree, baked bread, helped avventura1234 build a raised bed, bought a cabbage to make my own sauerkraut (per instructions from the class I took at Preserve last week), and bought some organic raw milk to make my own yogurt. And a jar to make my own kombucha.

I'm turning into some kind of...hippie. Or pioneer. Or something. It's very weird.

So anyway, my reward for a day of urban farming-related busyness was a long cool shower, followed by hot bread with more melty butter than is strictly consistent with best dietary practices, and some Due South. (I still don't have the whatever to watch the very last episode, though.)

Tomorrow: gonna make manapua, start the yogurt and the sauerkraut, and go see the new Callum Keith Rennie movie X-Files movie with my mom and my niece, three generations of X-Philes whether Chris Carter deserves us or not.

Sounds like your day rounded out nicely! Got an apple tree hu? What kind of apples? One of those new multi-kind?

I've had the same sense of wonder with the fun path we have both been on. The adventure seems to take on newe proportions each day. But as long as we are having fun I guess it doesn't matter what the labels may be.

So, where did you find the raw milk this time? Closer to home than the Vancouver visit I hope.

They sell it at the Whole Foods in the Pearl. I can easily get there on my way home from work.

I'm enjoying the adventure--can't think when I've ever been more engaged in something. I just sometimes have to stop and go "wow" because it's all so unexpected.

This whole yeast-fermentation thing is HUGE for me. I can't wait to see how the sauerkraut comes out. And yogurt! Everyone says home made is so much better than store-bought. I'll let you know...
