I'm struggling with this in-between time of finishing this blog and starting the new one. I have been so busy that I don't have anything to share and I want to wait to write the great posts for the new site (isn't that just a terrible thing). I'm stuck. It happens. Life is in transition and I can't really move forward until all the parts are in place. The domain has been set and the site is being built. I love the creation of the site and that's consuming me. I like the art of it. The content will come later.
This Saturday is the first Farmer's Market and we're working towards that. I can't wait but we'll be busy getting ready.
Forage season is starting and Sunday is a mushroom foray that I hope means the start of mushroom season here in the Palouse. I have discovered Oregon Grape and now I see it every where. It will be a long wait before the berries come and we'll have jam and juice for the first time.
We're leaving for holiday in two weeks and that means days of clamming and crabbing, seaweed and sea salt as we're on the northern beaches of Washington. I can't wait to try some foraging there - mushroom and fiddleheads are on the plan if we can find them. I'm thinking of trying some new things such as sea cucumber and snails but there's a huge ick factor that I need to get over first.
I'll post the new site as soon as it's up but here, I'll be getting rather quiet until that final fateful day when Living between a rock and a hard plate says goodbye.
