Projects, Moving, and Real Life….

Good Afternoon all, on this lovely Sunday in July!!!

I figured it was about time to get my butt back on here and let my readers know that we hadn’t given up on the blog! To give you all an update, we have recently moved BACK to Ohio, to the beautiful Ohio River Valley area.

This is actually just across the border in good ole. WV, but we get the same view ;)

Got distracted by summer and did some hiking :

ALL of us went hiking:

Saw some ghosts along the way! :

 

Indian pipes (Monotropa uniflora) aka: ghost flowers
Indian pipes (Monotropa uniflora) aka: ghost flowers – These guys get nutrients via a symbiotic relationship with the soil fungi around it rather than using photosynthesis and sunlight!

 

The Old Earth Project hosted an herbal walk where we hiked back in the woods and introduced our guests to wild edibles and medicinal herbs in the area.

 

Our group listening to Steve talk about identification techniques and leaf shapes.

So summer has kept us on our toes!!! In the meantime we’ve been recruiting new members and planning future events. We got our logo and business cards made up!

Our next step is to get our blog posts going regularly again, and to get our Etsy shop up and going. We’ve both been working full-time on the side; so it’s been a chore to get everything done in the meantime. But we are making progress! I want to thank you all for sticking around, and welcome any newcomers!

 

Our next blog is going to be a piece on tincture making. We were thrift shopping over at the Goodwill yesterday and we found a great little tincture shelf to help us out.

 

 

I love re-purposing and thrift shopping!
