Sprouting Things

I type these posts in our kitchen.  Looking around me, I smile as I see some of things Cherie does to make our life here more sustainable and self-reliant:  a loaf of home-made bread, a bowl of freshly harvested sunflower seeds, little pots with herbs growing in them, etc. There are also sprouting things all around me, generating awesomeness for our salads:  green onions, a tray of sunflower seeds, mung seeds in jars.   And there are jars with kombucha mushrooms fermenting, doing whatever they do on the way to making great tea.

As I finish my coffee and get ready to go outside and start tending all the great things growing out there, I think it’s pretty cool that so much good stuff is growing in here too.
