Two-bit Guru | Salvaged Goods | Photo of silt fencing and a wooden box received from a neighbor

How would you like to have a neighbor who actually delivers salvaged goods to your door from numerous sources? If you’re a trash picker like me I’m sure you’d answer with an enthusiastic Yes! Please contain your envy because I enjoy such a situation. My trash-purveying neighbor is a landscaper and he comes across all […]

I love to be in the garden, whether I’m working, or picking raspberries, or just hanging out. This morning I opted to pick raspberries to put on my cereal. The patch is located literally 4 paces outside the front door, as the crow flies, meaning I have to step over the hostas. It’s 8 paces […]

Like love & marriage, stuff and clutter is fraught with conflicting emotions. We might love our stuff (or our spouse), but sometimes the clutter (or the marriage) is almost too much […]

What’s better than a garden cam? Two garden cams! I’m hoping, actually we’re hoping, to have the second one up and running in about another week. [Edit: The second one is now up and running. You can view it here.] The garden is constructed with 42-inch wide paths, just wide enough to accommodate the garden […]

  We often speak of our life’s path as though it runs in a straight line, or possibly that it’s more like a meandering lane. Looking back I have come to realize that my path hasn’t been, and isn’t now, an easy target to define. When I drank beer, wine, and Scotch whiskey in my […]
