Lotus Garden Newsletter for Homesteaders. 1st September 2021
It looks like the northern hemisphere is busy with harvests. Meanwhile the south is preparing for a new growing season with the arrival of spring.
It seems that the timing of this newsletter means that we are missing challenges at the moment, as they are all in their wrap up stage, but keep your eyes on @ecotrain and @abundance.tribe for future ones.
This week is short and sweet, but I hope you enjoy the highlights.
Some highlights of the week
If you've every wondered about elephant garlic? Then this video from @sustainablyyours should help to enlighten you. I've grown standard garlic for a few years and got some little surprises from this interesting variety.
A reminder comes from @thebigsweed about the bounties to be found in nature. It's easy to forget that our crops all came from wild plants at some point and they still exist out there in the wild. He also adds a little reminder to take things at a pace you can manage as time changes things.
@mudcat36 takes us on a tour of her garden as the UK heads into autumn. Despite a week off dry weather while they were away, there are still harvests to be had and a cute little visitor allowed them to take sombre portraits.
Whenever @buckaroobaby shares a recipe it makes me want to start cooking. I'm always astonished at how a treat can be so burritos nutritious if made the right way and her chocolate mousse is no different.
