A new path…

choices abound of where to go, what to do.

Sometimes a new path can lead you back to where you started with more wisdom, clarity and focus.

I will NOT stay on this property and grow food after all. The universe seems to be sending me back closer to the ocean.

I have been busy putting together a small automatic sprouting system which will be easy for folks to put together to grow their own sprouts and microgreens. And, I will be joining forces with one of my dearest friends to cater raw, living foods on a weekly basis to like minded souls. Both of these pursuits are what we enjoy doing., and in the future, we will offer classes.

The possibilities are endless…

let the journey begin.

the journey begins…

I relocated to Central Florida in the beginning of October, 2016. A friend from the 1980’s had offered me a place to stay in exchange for taking care of the property. There is close to 1 3/4 acres with a 2 bedroom house in need of some TLC. My main goal will be homesteading the land with tropical fruit trees, herbs, berries and raised bed gardens. I will also be helping do repairs around the house. For the first several months, I cleaned the main living area of the house and began removing clutter, then painted the kitchen, dining & living areas. As the weather got warmer, I moved outside.

So far, I have 4 Jackfruit saplings, a mango and some banana trees to plant. Last week, I planted my first tree, a Brown Turkey Fig.

This journey begins as spring comes around. The layout of my gardens & trees will come as I spend time in the outdoors. This blog will permit me to share what I am learning as I go along. Most of my sprout growing has been in water since  I closed my business. I have not had a yard to play in, so, moving into the world of composting again will be welcoming. There is plenty of space to set up a small greenhouse structure for growing sprouts & baby greens. Most likely, I will extend the east facing screen porch and grow greens there.

Can you tell?  I would love to live here for the next 30+ years.
