My Photo
Location: United States

Julie graduated from Creighton University with a major in dance and Theology and taught for several years at an inner-city school in Milwaukee. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she attended St. John’s University in Collegeville and completed a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

Fall Cold Crop

The third week of August, I planted a small raised bed with cold crops. Some red and yellow Swiss chards, red and green romaine, a Mesclun mix, and purple kale. The combination of warm days and cool nights contributed to fast sprouting. The photo was taken about eight days after planting. This week, I've harvested the first of the Mesclun and must say the flavors were outstanding.

The tape marks 12 X 12 spots. I can plant a bit denser with this method. Since the box gets full southern sun, and is positioned next to a dryer vent, the soil stays warm into December.
