An Awesome Link and a Preview for Tomorrow

I don't want my website to turn into a linkfest, but since it is also supposed to serve as a personal reference journal, I do occasionally post links to websites that I don't want to forget about when I need them.

Hence, I am linking to Freeze/Frost Dates at  It is a pretty awesome reference for average last frost dates down to the zipcode, and I know I'll find it useful.  Hopefully anyone reading this will as well.

Finally, my short preview for tomorrow.  I've hiked quite a bit the last couple of days, and I'm planning on going a lot more in the coming weeks.  I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Tucson spring, hiking, foraging, moving to Portland soon, and maybe something else if it comes to mind.

A Quick Update

I have been more than neglectful of my blog recently, and to anyone who considers themselves a regular reader, I sincerely apologize.  I have unfortunately been focusing so fully on making ends meet that I have been unable to do any permaculture or homesteading type work.  I hate to post blogs like this one too often, because then I feel like I'm just posting for the sake of it, and I don't have any substance.  I do promise to make a more concerted effort in the near future to have more posts.

On a better note, I'd like to mention a new-ish website that is currently undergoing development.  Save Our Skills is a website about the importance of society recapturing traditional skills that have mostly been lost or forgotten about in the previous couple of generations.  The website is very new and somewhat beta, but it looks like it will prove to be a valuable resource for anyone trying to learn or relearn traditional skills that helped build self-sufficiency.  I encourage all of my readers to check it out and pass along your thoughts to the webmaster of that site.

I will be back soon with more posts... I promise!!
