Enhance your Garden with Worms!

Hello all Zoobirds! I'm back from Ireland and Scotland. It was a good trip. All went well until Saturday. I somehow caught a bug on the plane back and have been feeling sick until now. Who knows what caused it. I've been eating rice and chickpeas under strict orders from my doctor. And, sleeping a lot. I think I am better today...but I am going to take it slow. Meanwhile, there's nothing stopping me from writing!

Today is a special day. It's the Jewish new year,…

Signing up

I met someone here in Dublin who lives in Berkeley, CA. She said she doesn't own a house, lives in a small 1bdr flat and her friends sometimes comment that she is such an "un-slave" to fashion.

A Good Day at the Garden

The spring harvest yielded wonderful vegetables. There's a view of Sh'mal's patch in May '08. You can see the collard greens in the center, which are the hardiest veggies in the patch. Just to their right is kale. The garlic chives (three sprouts on the bottom of the photo) make for delicious additions to salads and many recipes. The Daikon radishes are huge. See the lush, soft patch of lamb's quarters near… Continue

Letter to Sh'mal

In case you Zoobirds haven't met Sh'mal yet, here's a video I call "Sh'mal, the benefactor" to introduce him:

And, here's a letter I just wrote to Sh'mal, who has moved to Seattle.

Hi Shmal! I sent you a shot of the garden I took yesterday and you replied:

"Looking at the garden makes me feel that I'm still there."

The earth was very soft and easy to work with. The weeds came up pretty well. I am…
