:: Good Girl Gone Green » Raw Apple Sauce ::  | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

Apple season is still in full swing, so I bought more apples this past week, and my fridge is loaded with them. If you have an overabundance of apples like me, here are some great apple recipes to get you started. My apple farmer said they could stay good until March if I keep them in the fridge. Fresh apples until March? Count me in. No more exported apples for us in the winter- hopefully. I will be buying more next week to add to my stash. I think I need a second fridge.

Soil to Sky – Why Agroecology Can Save the World! « Home Grown Edible Landscapes

Soil to Sky – Why Agroecology Can Save the World! « Home Grown Edible Landscapes | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

It’s a no-brainer for organic sustainability gardeners but this graphic has made it so simple and clear for the non-gardening folks among us. Treating the soil, soil food web, air, oceans and animals as one living being to be cared for and nourished is an idea that our agronomy forebearers had practiced for centuries – a practice that we wandered away from in the earlier part of the last century. Since big agriculture is responsible for the largest use of resources at least in this country, returning to an agroecological approach makes such good sense for ourselves and our environment. To read more about this, read Danielle Nierenberg’s great Huffington Post blog,

A Plea For A Better Class Of Knick-Knack

A Plea For A Better Class Of Knick-Knack | Annie Haven | Haven Brand | Scoop.it

I’m starting to think that as gardeners, we need a better class of knick-knacks.

I was at the nursery t’other day—this is optimal planting season in the Southeast, where summer is what kills you and winter is basically one long growing season with occasional chilly bits—and like many nurseries, this one had the big enclosed area full of knick-knacks and bits of what, as a professional illustrator, I shudder to call “art.”
