hugelkultur purity forest garden books food preservation

Jocelyn's life is all about balance. Maybe that's why she's an accountant and is such an advocate for keeping our natural systems healthy.
As a child, she perched on branches, collected moss and fungus, caught frogs and snakes, and climbed up into swaying tree forts in her beloved Pacific Northwest woods. Then, as a teenager, she learned that reining in sugar kept her more alert and energetic. These youthful observations grew into passions for walks in the woods, gardening, herbal remedies, and natural parenting with whole and traditional foods. More recently, Jocelyn's interest in the natural and healthy led to all things permaculture and she completed her first permaculture design course in 2010.
Jocelyn enjoys helping 1- and 2- person micro-businesses spend less time on their bookkeeping, growing and wildcrafting herbs and greens, plus cooking and fermenting veggie filled, health-promoting goodness.

Mine is used a little more than both of those, though still rarely:  @joce_campbell

This approach by the infamous BJ Fogg has really worked for me.

He offers a free 5 day program, and if you can get his book from the library I highly recommend. The website is also great, and podcasts etc.

Similar and also very helpful is Atomic Habits by James Clear, and I like his email newsletter.

I track my new habits on a page in my Bullet Journal - - and try to keep the streak going. I like the paper (analog) tracking more than any apps I've tried.

xx much love to all the Permies

Tiny Habits is in my book list now.

Somehow, I ran across the YouTube that explains using a Bullet Journal and watched it because I was curious after seeing it referred to all over the place - including Laurel's post!

So I watched it (it's a quick, engaging 4:11 minutes), and went 'meh' I get what it is now, but probably not for me.

Then, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I kept wondering if I would like it. So I pulled out just a ruled paper tablet, no cover, not even a journal, and started to use that. And you know, I like it! I'm probably not going to go all colorful sparkly pens and girly stencils like what seems to be the rage these days, but the basic kind, like in the video above, does seem to work for me. We'll see if I keep it up.

Also, I recently learned the term sitzfleisch. Which just basically means sit your butt down and get to work. From This Lifehack Will Change Your Lifeā€”If You Can Stand It. Might be the opposite of Sonja's meme (the last on the previous page of this thread), but for those of us working from home with a highly distractable nature, it brings it back down to the basics for me/us.

Who knew?! It's funny because I actually made burgers for lunch!

There's pastured organic beef available from Turner Farms here in Missoula and it was their delicious ground beef that I used. No pictures though.

Great thread, Anne!

Edited to add that this happened one year at wheaton labs:

Sam Barber wrote:Here is the hamburger that we made for dinner. There were several birthdays this week so we decided it would awesome to have a celebratory hamburger. It contained 8lbs of burger, 6lbs of Bun, 4lbs of bacon total weight of 18lbs. The whole thing was made from scratch by our awesome kitchen commander Oliver.

I think that was the year that we had a couple sides of beef and ALL of it was turned in to ground because it wasn't hung/aged.

What an amazing design for dorm or helper (boot/wwoofer/intern) housing, too; not just siblings.

That video the bottom of page 19 was fun! It might demonstrate some parts of this graph...
