t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
Aerogarden Update: 4 Weeks
Week 4 and my Aerogarden is thriving! All this after being gone for an entire week. It waters itself. I actually used my first little harvest today. I took a few sprigs of dill (in the back left hand corner, next to the basil) and added it to our tuna. Delicate and fragrant, it was the perfect addition. I can't wait to make my Garlic Tomato Basil Sauce this week!
