In our effort to reduce the waste we create, making our own laundry soap. We used natural, biodegradable liquid soap before from plastic tubs that we always meant to refill in bulk somewhere but never did. Though the plastic tubs liquid soap comes in are technically recyclable, most recycling programs (even very good ones) do not accept them (or yogurt tubs, etc.). Anyway, there is something so satisfying about making something useful. And using it. Especially when it smells like peppermint.
Picking up sweet-smelling beeswax at the farmer’s market and finally getting around to making spoon oil to treat all my neglected wooden utensils.
A little no-till garden rich in worms and health and surprises. The soil was good from the start, and my goal is that every year we live here, the soil will get a little bit better and our garden will get a little bit bigger.
