  • Nothing makes me more grateful for living in Alaska than August.  My freezer is loaded up with fish and berries of all kinds.   Nothing makes me think of abundance more than a day in the berry patch. Then, there is the squash going nuts in the high tunnel. The basil and tomatoes overflow i...

  • The latest buzz around the Homer Farmers Market this week didn’t necessarily have anything to do with veggies. It was about the $1 per minute massages down at the Wilderness Wellness booth. With this hectic summer, some time in Erik’s massage chair is a high commodity....

  • There is always more to learn. I found this out after years of making kombucha at home and trying to explain to people how a scoby makes kombucha.  The scoby is a culture, I would say. It ferments the sugar in the tea. You put that scoby in tea and in a week or two you will have kombucha. The s...

  • What are the traditional dishes you cook that have been passed down through the generations? Are the majority of your meals coming from a long lineage of food culture, or are they mostly swayed by what was on sale or quick to make? When I say “Italian food” or “Mexican food” a picture of ver...

  • I have heard flowers referred to as the crystals of the plant world. In the mineral kingdom, all elements of time and space, heat and pressure, material and moisture need to be just perfect for a crystal to grow in rock.   So it is with flowers....

  • I had a dream last night that I was hunting mushrooms across Kachemak Bay. It was a great dream. The moment of finding that perfect specimen is both surprise and ingenuity, knowing where to look and when and knowing what to look for all wrapped up into the brief time that a mushroom is actually frui...

  • It’s true, Wednesday Farmers Markets have started.  Now you can get down there between 3 and 6 p.m. in the middle of the week and get a parking space.  And veggies.   But there are those in our community who don’t get good food even if they get a parking space. Economics can be a ...

  • I would like to talk about community health, but I am not a health professional.  Let me make that clear up front. Luckily, one of the beautiful things about this community is that nothing is black and white. All you have to do is read the opinion pieces in the newspaper in February to know tha...

  • I wish I had a tape measure at last Saturday’s Homer Farmers Market.  That broccoli and cauliflower must have been at least 10 inches across. Here we haven’t even reached July yet and we are already getting produce that big.   Whether it is the huge broccoli from the Chmielowiecs or Lo...

  • Here is another reason for me to heap praise on the Homer Farmers Market. The community-building atmosphere there does not end with the locally grown food and the ability to run into everyone you know in town there on a given Saturday. It also integrates kids as part of that community. Last Saturday...
