Darcy and Alder to the Rescue

July 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

I’ve had these owie’s on my foot for a while. They’re way down there on my foot, out of visual range yanno, so I hadn’t paid much attention to them. My shoes broke a few weeks ago and I haven’t been wearing any (it’s crazy, I keep thinking people will notice, but they don’t), so […]

Materia Medica: Poplar

July 8th, 2008 · No Comments

Last year I was driving north through Canada, disappointed that I’d missed poplar budding season in Alaska, when I pulled over in the mountains and found a whole stand of baby poplar trees by a little stream that were just starting to bud. I spent two or three hours there picking the buds, sliding into […]

Poor Bro

May 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Yesterday I was throwing the ball up these steps for Bro. See, that way he has to run up and down them every time he brings the ball back and he gets tired in like half an hour instead of two hours. But all that Border Collie agility, twisting, dashing up steps, and turning on […]

If everyone ate this way, there would be no disease…

April 28th, 2008 · No Comments

Darcy finished her nutrition thesis, which is about the nutritional needs of pregnancy. Part of it is a meal plan, which provides all the nutrition you could possibly need to live and not get sick, plus a few extra calories for pregnancy. If you’re at all interested in food, you should go to Darcy’s blog and […]

Materia Medica: Chickweed

April 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

I love, love, love chickweed. I always have. When I was a kid and we didn’t have any food in the house, I would make salads with chickweed and dandelion flowers and pretend that I could save the world from starvation. For years and years I didn’t think of chickweed at all, or eat it. […]

Herbs For Beginners: Part Two

March 27th, 2008 · No Comments

After the first version of this I realized how much I left out. Of course, if I put everything in one post it would be too much, so I guess it’s going to be a progression. If you read that then hopefully you’ve gotten outside with a field guide and identified some of your local […]

How to Dumpster Dive

March 24th, 2008 · 10 Comments

There was a whole dumpster diving culture where I grew up, so much that the stores started locking their dumpsters. It was okay, though, we stole their keys and made copies of them. I lived in a bookstore then. A few of us did, it wasn’t radical or anything, we were just homeless and the […]

Herbs For Very Beginners

March 12th, 2008 · No Comments

Back in that who are you thread, a few of you asked about herbs. What to do if you are at the very, very begining. This is not a good time to be at the very begining, because things are not exactly green and growing in most of the world. That said, here is a […]

Yay for Plants!

January 15th, 2008 · No Comments

I had a cold for a while. I mostly ignored it because it wasn’t very bad. I’d wake up in the morning with a sore throat and a little congestion, and after an hour or two it’d be gone. My first response to anything is generally to just kind of feel it and think about […]

Another Interview With My Mom

December 30th, 2007 · No Comments

If you’ve been reading a while, you’ll remember previous interviews with my mom. If you haven’t go check them out. Remember the time you saved Sunshine with rose hips? Yes, we had been out on trapline for a couple weeks with our dog team and two pups who were about four weeks old. One of […]
