Garlic Preservation: Fermented, Pickled, and Honey-Fermented!

Posted: September 24, 2015

Garlic can store well, sometimes up to a year for certain varieties in ideal conditions. But for those of us who have grown and saved garlic, you’ll know that this doesn’t always happen as planned!

How to Make Seed Bombs

Posted: March 19, 2015

Why You Should Keep Seed Bombs In Your Pocket Seed bombs are a ton of fun. To make, to give as presents, and most of all to throw and see the fruits (or flowers) of your labor. They’re relatively cheap to make, all natural, and you can cover a large area of neglected land or a hard to access area very quickly.
