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: 2 Weeks
My little plants are growing! It is so fun to watch them each day. I was very disappointed because 2 recipes I made today needed fresh herbs...but they are still too miniature to cut. I needed sage and mint. Sage for a Butternut Squash Bisque recipe and the mint as a garnish for some Lemon Custard Cream Puffs. I will post the recipes soon. I served these at a baby shower and they were a hit.
A few more weeks and I think I my little garden will be ready for its first harvest. I have my artificial plants in the background as cheerleaders for my little guys.
