Each Friday (or therabouts)! I will endeavor to post things of interest that have grabbed my attention throughout the previous seven days. Things to inspire, fascinate, educate and generally get you buzzing.
- Ten ways you can grow a better food system.
- I really like these pieces of furniture from alcarol. They leave the edges unfinished coated in resin, so that you can see the growth of moss and lichen on the wood.
- I didn't grow any squash this year, I think I may have overdosed a little last year - But if you did here are some tips on how you can store your squash over the winter.
- Hackwith Design House, an independent American design house has some really nice handmade clothes I want!
- A shop and an indoor agricultural system - Welcome to The Farmery.
- Unverpackt - The supermarket in Berlin with no packaging.
- It is Culture Night tonight folks, there is so much going on.
- Loughmore Co-operative shop and tea rooms. I firmly believe in the merits of co-operatives when planned and undertaken well. Hopefully this may be the beginning of a new form of Co-operative movement in Ireland. You can listen to an interview with one of the founders and more on the global Co-operative movement here (starts at 44mins).
- The new issue of Feast Journal is out, pick one up.
- Somerville - She is a signer, she is local and she is good - Check her out!
What magical weather we are having here on the west coast of Ireland, bright sunny day after bright sunny day with HEAT, for about the past two weeks at this stage - So THIS is an 'Indian Summer'.
We have a busy weekend in the house, a 4th birthday party for Ada, the excitement began about three days ago!
I am also flat out filling orders, experimenting with concoctions and making for the Dingle Food Festival, which I will be traveling to with my small apothecary, keep an eye out for me down there if you are going.
The harvest moon is one of my most favourite moons of the year. What a beauty it was this month, as it appeared to us from behind Mount Gable in all it's golden hued splendour -
Mystical Harvest Moon.
