Between the rising price of … everything … and an impending move to a big city where life promises to be more expensive (not to mention more toxic), I’ve been inspired. I am hereby eschewing brand names and making my own. So get ready for easy, cheap, eco-friendly events like sprouting beans, growing veggies, and make-it-yourself make-up.

Here, you can see three “square foot gardens” in progress. Our soil is better known as sand, so this is an apt technique. This morning I sprayed uber-strong garlic tea on some of the plants to fend off whatever little crawly has been nibbling on them. At least they’ll be safe from vampires!
