My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

National Make-It-Snow Day, Oct 13 2012

Our family was just watching the local news. We're located near Denver, CO on the eastern plains. A nearby reservoir is dropping over a foot a day, and in another nearby location, an entire lake that services 20,000 acres is completely dry. Bone, cracked dry.

We need to make it snow. Or rain there in those southern states. So ... we're calling for people to gather together on Saturday, October 13 2012 to make it snow! Do whatever you and your friends do: pray, meditate ... whatver. Let's bring the moisture from places that has too much, and bring it to where we need it the most. Let's envision filling up reservoirs and lakes and cisterns and rain barrels.

Our garden pretty much flopped this year because we couldn't consistently water it so there went our plans for a harvest party, but come Oct 13, we're inviting like-minded people to come join us on our tiny farmette.

Would you do the same, please?

Pass the word.
