Garden Journal Weekly, 2nd March 2022
As I browsed through the homesteading tag it struck me what a broad spectrum of lifestyles are being shared here. With everything that's been happening in the world of late and the division it's been making, I'm looking on enviously at those who have chosen to move away from this rat race by stepping away from the towns and cities. @fenngen shared a day in his woodland life, where immediate concerns are warmth and food. However, as long as you have some form of media, you can't help but be drawn to thinking about what is happening in the world. @jacobpeacock also touches on this as he continues his remote, apocalyptic homesteading journey. Then a little less isolated, @trucklife-family has been learning dry stone walling skills and helping to plant trees in her community. How easy is to switch off from world events really, though, and should we completely?
When I see @fermentedphil's name on a post I know I'm not going to be disappointed. Funnily enough I grow garlic chives myself and had no idea there was so much difference to standard chives. I'm going to be paying more attention to them from now on, especially when they start flowering.
I'll leave you with a post from @andrastia that brightened my day and I hope it brightens your too. How lovely is this garden planter of little Lory's! It's always great to see children getting passionate about gardening and I'm sure she was stoked to have gotten her own little veggie patch.
