This extreme heat is dictating our farming schedule. We wake up early to water and harvest and spray in the evenings. We feel like trapped indoors like winter. We have some plants and crop really starting to thrive and other things that are dying off. We love gardening because you see birth, death, growth, disease, insect habitats. It is like a mini ecosystem, and you can never predict what it is going to do. Here are some pics of our garden. You can see the garden, cabbage, kraut, cherries, baby komquats, pumkins, dyers indigo flowers, drying flax in the garage. We are so excited to harvest the flax! And a pic of Matokie in his chair! XOXO A&J
This blog is run by Allyson Mellberg Taylor and Jeremy Taylor. We started it as a way to share some of our doings with friends and put a fire under our butts for the book that we are currently writing together about non-toxic artist materials. This has been a passion of Jeremy's since graduate school and he has done years worth of research leading up to the writing of this book. When we met during graduate school and started sharing living/studio space and making work collaboratively it became an important part of my life and studio practice too. I can't imagine making work any other way.
