Talking about The Woodwife's Journal
Here's a photo collage of some things that have been going on at our house. I've made it into a grab button for you to add to your site if you wish. Just go to my side bar and copy the code from the box, paste it into a gadget on your blog. Then you'll be able to come right back here simply by clicking on the image! I'd be grateful if you'd share it with your friends.
Here's a list of some of the things we've been practicing in our home for years and would like to share with you. We'll also be featuring new things as we learn more and more how to live greener, healthier lives.
Bread Baking, the sky's the limit here with yeast breads, sourdough, crackers, flatbreads, etc.
Putting up produce, canning, freezing, drying, pickling, lacto-fermented foods like kimchi, peppers and now sauerkraut.
Herbal remedies like salves, lotions, tinctures, syrups, ear candles, teas and more.
Homemade, additive free personal care products like facial masks, foot soak, vapor and bath salts, soaps, scrubs, aromatherapy and lots more. We have some experiments in the works!
Raw milk and yummy, good for you, whole foods made from raw milk like butter, yogurt, cheese, cream cheese, kefir, buttermilk, whipped cream and sour cream.
More whole foods and probiotic drinks like water kefir and kombucha.
Wildcrafting herbs and everlastings.
Herbal and everlasting wreaths and arrangements.
Other hand crafted projects including sewing, knitting, spinning, soap making, jewelry, upcycling, and many more.
Hobbies including a bit of F & I re-enactment, gardening, building, maple sugaring, raising free range laying hens, composting worms and lots more.
Join us this fall for Applemania! and Pumpkinpalooza!
Later we'll feature a few herbal remedies that we like to use in our home. Remember that none of the suggested remedies on this site are intended for medical advice of any kind but merely a faithful report of what we're practicing and the empirical evidence we've gathered through trial and error plus lots of study and research. Be sure to check them out for yourself before using them to treat yourself or your family. All that to say it's just FYI!
We're working on some special things for the holidays.
Hope you enjoy being here at The Woodwife's Journal.
