This week on shelfie Sunday, the book that inspired me to start a garden and a compost pile on the same day, Dave Owens' "Extreme Gardening". Back around 2005 my love of cooking naturally led me to want to learn more about the food system and where our food comes from, so I started by reading a few books by Pete Singer and Michael Pollan. The more I learned about our food system the more disgusted I became and I realized that the answer to the problem for me was to just grow as much of my own food as possible so I wouldn't be a part of that system any longer. #diy is a lifestyle I grew up with and made a lot of sense to me so I decided I was going to start a garden. Not knowing where to start, I hopped over to the @bookmansphoenix and found this book for $6, it was even autographed 🤓 As you can tell by the condition, I've certainly gotten my moneys worth out of it, and then some! The cool thing about this book, is that it's designed to be used in the garden. The pages are water-proof and tear resistant. Dave's writing style is definitely mostly dad jokes, but his enthusiasm for organic gardening is very apparent and that's the best part, it's inspiring, it makes you want to get out there and get your hands dirty. Before any gardening is discussed Dave talks about the importance of compost and how to build a compost pile. I remember I was so excited to start a compost pile I actually went out a bought a bag of carrots just to shred them and compost them! The glossary and index for this book make using it for research difficult, so it's not one I use often anymore, however it's always one of the first books I recommend to any new gardener wanting to grow organic in the hostile deserts! 🌵📚#bloomwhereyouareplanted #lovewhereyoulive #myownbackyard #plantsomething #signsofsummer #sustainablesprout #growforit #gardeningismytherapy #organicgardeninginspiration #grownwithlove #igrewthis #greenthumb #shelfiesunday #diygarden #phoenixgardening #phoenixgarden #extremegardening #gardenbook #gardenbooks #gardeningbooks #gardeningbook

As I sit here on my dock tonight in complete silence except for the mullet jumping and the frogs singing, I am contemplating whether or not I truly ‘need’ my job that I have to go back to tomorrow. #sittingonthedockofthebay #baylife #panamacity #nowork #peace #paintedtoes #surfboards #kayaks #docks #florida #lovewhereyoulive #toesinthesand #nights #sundayfunday #nodrama #frogs #mullet #home

It’s bloob picking season
nature loves courage. you make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. this is the trick. this is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. this is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. this is how magic is done. by hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed.

That weird teachers day that falls on the Monday after holidays when kids are ready to go Brack to school - and working parents need them too. All good means I have Kingston helping on private inspections... he loves fake grass. : : : #realestate #property #centralcoast #lovewhereyoulive #coastalhomes #forsale #home #homestyle #mcgrathadvantage #wamberal #you #longjetty #tumbiumbi #terrigal #northavoca #bateaubay #holgate #matcham #erinaheights #springfield #agentslife #dreambig #investors #homebuyers

Sunday update: Jeff removed the soffit above the kitchen, raised the ceiling in the hallway and the family room where we will be taking out the bay window and adding exterior doors, then reframed and reran the electrical. We resealed the planter in the entryway and I added new plants. Great first weekend in the new place! @ourmodernmanor #currenthomeview #weekendwarriors #husbandwifeteam #diycouple #lightandbright #lovewhereyoulive

Last night’s spur-of-the-moment hike turned out to be a great idea— there were flowers, a rainbow, a spectacular sunset, & even a nice little bluegrass concert drifting over Bear Lake 😊 . . . . #optoutside #828isgreat #lovewhereyoulive #playonjacksoncountync #hiking #sunset #summervibes #summeristhebest
