Shmitta can be hard. There are many things that I would like to do in my garden right now. Such as:

But still there’s lots of good stuff brewing on Bloomah’s City Farm

Pictured (l-r): Fermented honey-garlic-ginger, sauerkraut with apple and ginger, pickled purple onions with sumac, apple scrap vinegar, beeswax skin salve, hibiscus mead, beeswax-olive oil deodorant. Also scattered fruits from my edible hibiscus plant.

It’s kind of hard to explain the satisfaction I get when I partner with the forces of Creation to grow something so delicious, nourishing and beneficial! So valuable! So one-of-a-kind!

Really it feels kind of like gardening 🙂

There are so many more DIY projects I want to try. The shift of focus from gardening is inspiring me to try lots of new things on my kitchen counter.

Projects I hope to try soon:

One of the main things I’m growing this year is my knowledge and skills. I joined a monthly courses on ancient skills, where we are learning about foraging, carving, natural clays, tracking and more.

It is wonderful to be outdoors and learning in this beautiful world.

  1. Do you mind sharing the info on the ancient skills course you’re doing? I’d love to do something like that!

  2. I also love the outdoors and this blog has given me the impetus to get towards a home based growing project as well, what a wonderful way to connect with nature even in smaller Israeli quarters, thank you so much and looking forward to your email updates!
