Since the last time I posted, not only have two full seasons nearly passed, I also moved across the country, from Denver to Buffalo, NY. We were ready for a change after 13 years in Denver, and what an incredible transition — from the high and dry and constant sun of the Rocky Mount Front Range, to the lush green soft-light waterland of the shores of Lake Erie. It is, as they say, a whole new world ecologically and culturally, and I’m very excited to sink my feet into the rich soil here and see what grows. And the herbs that grow with wild abandon here just astound me!
This is me and 6-7 foot nettles growing at a nature preserve by the lake!
