Back at it... hopefully

After taking a couple months off from blogging, I'm giving it another go.

Quick update:  No animals now, just garden and foraging and hunting.  In the garden, my daughter and I have planted some greens, but they aren't looking good (we had quite a cold snap for California, but only 3 hours of rain in the past 50 days).  We will probably re-plant in February:  beets, broccoli, rutabagas, collard greens.  We'll also plant some potatoes in our successful bamboo windowblind potato patch.

Also, I hope to take on some larger tasks:  Building a smoker, maybe even an outdoor bread oven, and some general yard improvements.  I also hope to keep this site regular, including updating the "in-season" section.  And look for a how-to on nettle cooking, too!  We still need the video to accompany our picking vid.

I'd be really interested in a design for an outdoor bread oven. Now that I have sold the house and am about to treat the family to a long camping holiday by the sea while we build the new place, any oven I have will have to be outdoors!

the latest issue of Grit magazine has a design plan, and it might be up on their website:

Also, this site has some interesting plans, although the site is weirdly built:
