While steeping my chamomile/hibiscus/spearmint tea and impatiently waiting to add a cough killing dose of honey (yep, sick AGAIN) it occurred to me I did not have to buy any of it. The herbs and flowers in my tea can grow here. Bees live and make honey here. I could be growing all this myself.
This thought was in addition to the research I've done on which fruit and nut trees grow here that I could look into planting, an expansive list of herbs, veggies, and flowers I want to grow next year, AND a contact list of people who raise ducks, chickens, rabbits, pheasants, and turkeys.
I have become almost flat out obsessed with doing everything myself. I want to know it all and grow it all! I actually even considered how much work it might be to grow my own rice earlier today (thank you Fukuoka sensei!)
Oh and did I mention I've been researching how to build root cellars, chicken coops, and ponds?
Fish stock I haven't looked into yet.....
Somebody has to stop me!
