The Story of Sorrel or Rumex Acetosa, a most useful herb in the garden

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

I planted some Sorrel in my organic vegetable garden and also in a terra cotta pot oustide my kitchen. I don’t remember having ever eaten Sorrel but it looked nice and I liked the sound of it. It turns out, it’s quite the hardy little herb, that keeps on giving.  I kept on giving it away, bunches of it, every time it looked like it could do with a good picking. Until, today. I felt the time had come for me to eat it. I looked it up in the “Complete Book of Herbs & Spices”, and found that if I just pulped it in a small cuisinart, it was the perfect addition to an omelette, one of my most favorite things to eat. I picked a handful of leaves, pulped them with 2 tbsp of extra virgin organic olive oil and add 4 tbsp at least of it to my simmering omelet. It was a revelation! Completely shockingly delicious. I’m not giving it away anymore. Go plant your own!

What to sell in an eco friendly and socially conscious store

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

I love my store! I hope you do as well, because my goal is to sell products that you need, like and that help you create a wonderful healthy home for yourself and if you have a family, them as well of course.

Let me tell you exactly what happens before I choose a product to carry in my store: After I have found a product I like and I have it in my hot little hands, I put it through the Priscilla test, which is using it myself. Why would I sell something I wouldn’t use? That will never happen.

The Products I chose to open my store with were ones that I needed and wanted, like biodegradable trash bags, plain market bags, non toxic soy candles and reusable produce bags, to name a few.

What I would really love, is to hear from you; what you need, what you like and what you can’t find. I want you to love my store just as much as I do and find things in it that make you happy.
