Found a great new blog this week at http://growthechange.blogspot.com/ by Canadian authors “Freija and Beringian Fritillary.” Guessing those aren’t real names, but wouldn’t it be awesome if they were? A few highlights:
- A knitted scarf/facemask for biking, which Kate should knit for Ken
- Recipe for making soymilk, plus what to do with the okara (soy pulp) when you’re done
- A review of harvesting grains by hand – why didn’t I think of a bread knife??
- …plus lots of great pictures, thoughts on sustainability, and essays of garden lore based on extensive observation (life cycle of their 4 types of ladybugs, fungal infections in the garden, etc.)
Also, Kate at Living the Frugal Life has inspired me to build a rocket stove – an outdoor stove built with very simple technology (bricks and a metal pipe) that will run on twigs. Paella, anyone?
