What I’m Reading
This book will change how you view every insect, flying or crawling, out there. I have gained a whole new respect for our native pollinators that is so much beyond my favorite fuzzy bumbles. This book is THE BEST, bar none, book on native pollinators and what we can all do to help make the world a better place.
An amazing book! Click the link above to buy from Chelsea Green – or go to the Bookstore for a quick link to Amazon. (Update – I am still reading this book! SO much info! A great reference and worth the price.)
The Weather: Because Gardeners Are Obsessed with It!
Spring! Rain, Wind, Sunshine – all that and more! Average last frost = April 15, but last year, a frost on May 1 froze my squashes! So early birds beware!
Ok – sure – you *might* be able to get it cheaper through Amazon (not always though! Check Chesea’s sales!) – BUT – if you are in a position to be able to support a smaller business that emphasizes ethics, a free-thinking humanitarian society, sustainability, homegrown goodness, and making this planet a better place – then please consider ordering through Chelsea Green!

About Barbolian Fields
Barbolian Fields is located just outside of Sequim, WA. Our main crop is garlic. We are still growing 24 varieties; however, we have cut back drastically on the number of bulbs to make more room for assorted fruits & berries, herbs, veggies, & wildlife plants. We are in the process of transforming our garden into more of a permaculture food forest. Every year, the garden gets more and more dense! The biomass is incredible! We’re working at being more self-sufficient, handcrafting things ourselves, living simply, and making do. Sometimes I serenade things with a little harmonica. Thanks for tuning in!
