  • Such a thoughtful birthday gift from @melissaweisspottery. Been using it every morning to get sugar from the sugar bowl out for coffee. Thanks, sweet friend!
  • If you're going to help a friend with wedding planning, then this is totally the view you should have whilst doing so. Lovely afternoon sipping hard cider, eating hush puppies, and helping @shelterprotectsyou plan, with @thecuriouseye @forvillagers @toandfromwithlove and Claire Hummel at the Grove Park Inn.

  • This amazing pile of all organic produce hails from Hominy Valley Organic Farm, a gorgeous plot of earth just down the road from us. Tom's prices are astoundingly good (he posts a weekly listing of what's available on his FB page). If you're in the area, Fridays are open farm days for purchasing produce. If you go, please do tell him I sent you!
  • The amazing Dave Bauer, mastermind and baker extraordinaire behind @farmandsparrow and @allsoulspizza, cradling some precious loaves for yesterday's River District Tailgate Market. Easily the best bread (and pastries, and pizza!) I have EVER had!!!

    That pizza looks amazing. The tilapia green house is really interesting too. The gal I used to get raw milk from was trying out raising tilapia. Though her tank for them wasn’t nearly as snazzy. What a great weekend.

  • Ha! That is exactly what I thought when I saw the archery pics- “Katniss hair!!!”. I would love to hear more about the tilapia green house. I am very interested in this.

  • Oh goodness! Is that your backyard? If so, it’s gorgeous! I have been contemplating on landscaping and gardening our front and back yard for the longest time but the entire projects feel a little overwhelming. Can you recommend where I should start?

    • kristina-no, it’s not our backyard. the top few images are from the ashevillage institute, which is close to downtown asheville, while the ones following the archery lesson are from our the home of our friends andy and katherine, who live in west asheville. both locations have hand-built outdoor ovens, which was pretty sweet to view. we cooked pizzas in andy and katherine’s oven on saturday, after our archery lesson. SO tasty!

  • Auntie Chele says:

    Was also wondering about those ovens, would you know if there was a workshop in the oven construction?
    Thank you for any info, Chele
