Inspiration for the weekend

Here are two fun sources of inspiration for the week- a tiny home, and a series you can watch in its entirety on Youtube: Escape to River Cottage.

I am inspired by these videos even as my tomatoes- my major crop this year- failed pretty badly. A disease swept through and decimated them at a moment when I just didn't have time to figure out how to save them. There'll still be some tomatoes- enough for Noah and Eli to snack on- but nothing more than that. Our 4 grape vines are doing really well in tires, and I have four granadilla vines that I'm hoping will also give a lot of fruit next year. That, together with 3 blueberry bushes, 4 lemon trees, a little pomegranate tree, strawberries, herbs and a lot of spinach, and there is still hope of a good amount of food. One day.
