New package for the Liquid Soap Refill

This is still phase II for the liquid soap, but this new package is great. You can dilute right in the bag! It is a paper pouch lined with a compostable plant plastic liner, transforming the diluting process.

Simply tear open the pouch at the notch and fill the pouch to top of the label. Click the link below to read more about it.

How to clean a greasy stovetop

Did you know that natural soap cleans your kitchen appliances better than detergents?

Dispose food debris and kitchen grease in your compost bin, without all of the toxic fumes or dry hands that result from "cleaning fluids".

Make cleaning your kitchen fun with the Liquid Soap Refill. We are working on a new package that will be easier to use and is compostable. Photos and videos (!!) coming soon.

It's time to work in the garden

My seedlings are hardening off, so they are strong enough to go into the garden.

I planted my cabbage and broccoli seedlings. I did a kale experiment last Nov., and planted small seedlings to over Winter and get a head start this year. It worked but I'm not harvesting kale. I'm growing seeds!! That was my original intention when I planted these last fall, but didn't know it worked until I saw the little seed head flowers emerge.

Get your hands dirty and see if you can grow a salad or a tomato sandwich!
