Hope you'll join me on my journey , as I go back to the land and try to live a more self ~ sufficient lifestyle.
I'm a SAHN ( Stay at Home Nana ), helping my 2 daughters with childcare.
I have 4 Grandkids , 3 boys and 1 girl , they bring so much joy to my life.
I enjoy art , blogging , cooking , creating , gardening , herbs , hiking , and learning something new each day ......
Here on our little farmette , we have 2 cats (Buddy)and (Mojo) , 1 dog (Shadow) , 4 Guinea Fowl and 8 Keets , 6 hens and 2 roosters.
I'm in the process of trying to live a simple , creative , green life and leave a better world for my children and grandchildren.
Daylilies have always been one of my favorite flowers , I think they're so beautiful. The daylily is native to Asia and was brought here as an ornamental. In Asia , the roots are sold at the food markets. All parts of the daylily are edible , you can eat the tubers , young shoots , flower buds and the flower itself. I've been doing some research on edible daylilies , you can boil the tubers for 5-10 minutes and add a little butter , I've read they taste like water chestnuts , I plan to try some one day. Check-out the blog entry below , it has a photo of an edible bouquet , a daylily is featured in the center of the beautiful bouquet ~ http://theessentialherbal.blogspot.com/2009/06/more-june-goodness-lavender-etc.html ~.
