From the Back Porch

In this section I imagine sitting with you on the back porch in some quiet corner of the day and passing on—whatever comes up. Maybe rambling thoughts, anything on my mind that day (Musings). Maybe trying to answer some Questions about homesteading in general, or our experiences here. Maybe some stories of our life here, or from long before (Boxwood Stories)—or even some out-and-out tall tales (Short Fiction).

January 2009: And now Ellen has joined us on the back porch! Her blog-type page Ellen's Little Soapbox offers perspectives on issues of diet, health, and illness. Her first entry makes the case for testing blood sugar at home.
