Another pretty spectacular morning in Raleigh, though the heat and humidity will creep back in soon. Big garden tasks today...water, tie, repeat some pollen applications for new crosses. #dailyplant2019 (it is getting hard to choose...there are interesting things appearing all over) is the indeterminate tomato Stump of the World, which traces back to Ben Quisenberry (he of Big Ben and Brandywine fame). I am growing it in a #strawbale. It is among the 3 great potato leaf pink beefsteak #tomatoes🍅 along with Polish and Brandywine, in my experience. I've grown it often since acquiring it in a SSE transaction in the late 1980s. #tomatostories #epictomatoes #fromthedriveway #2019garden

Stress takes away the ease of a happy heart. Of late I’ve been reflecting upon my own heart’s condition in relation to my stress levels. To put it bluntly, I’ve been overwhelmed with stress which leads to a feeling of heaviness in the chest, feelings of pressure, chest pain and even difficulty breathing. . With the house build, ample gardens to tend, summer social life, etc, I realize this full plate won’t go away and strategies of rest don’t do much unless I have a Shift in Perspective. . For me it’s all about Letting Go. Specifically Letting Go of expectations/pressure about the house timeline. . We’re hoping to get it finished/livable/closed in by winter, but I’ve had to make peace with the fact that that may not happen! We’ll do our best, but it may not happen! Our elder friend Gene recently reminded us to enjoy the process and that not everyone gets a chance to do this, to build their own home. I’ve been reflecting on this too. To me it is more important to enjoy this process than to push. What an important distinction that is! Already in relaxing the winter deadline, I feel my heart ease. . I’ve decided to also employ many healing strategies from my healing toolkit (thanks younger self!) to bring in that flow: reiki/energy healing, working with stones/crystals, tarot, journaling, meditation and some other methods I’ve learned along the way. . I want a straw bale home and a flourishing homestead, but not at the expense of my mental/emotional/spiritual/physical health. This has been such a huge journey for me in relation to manifesting deep-seated dreams. . May we all have happy hearts.

(Rent vs Mortgage) - Energy Savings At EarthCraft we look to adapt, finding ways to make living in a green home a reality for more people. Recently we’ve discussed multi-generational homes as one possibility for new home buyers looking to cut costs in many areas. Adding a separate living space to your current residence is a good way to remain in the area and neighborhood you love if you’ve got the equity but cannot afford a new home at $314,000.

Two things of note: 1) my handsome husband amidst his dream project. 2) why aren't those walls touching the ground? The house will be filled with about a foot of lava rock (R1 per inch) and finished with an adobe floor. So the walls are at finish height, and the floor will be built up to them. A little unconventional order of operations, but our creative and skilled framers @valley_timberframes made it happen. #adobefloors #strawbale #strawbalehouse #adobe #buildingahouse #sustainabledesign #sacramento #passivesolar

My Prince Edward County home for 2 nights: @owlsnestsuites. This unique, rustic, straw bale B&B is made almost entirely of natural materials, including the handmade furniture. Swipe for a little tour! Last night, I had a bonfire and roasted s’mores. This morning, I walked through the organic garden and collected some eggs from the chicken coop. I ❤️ this place. It’s exactly the kind of home I’d want for myself if I lived in the country. #hosted

On the topic of “micro-farming tricks that make you laugh...” my traveling companion last night was a bail of straw. I was driving my MINI Cooper Roadster back from a Longswamp Township Board of Supervisors meeting and stopped at @savidgefarms for a bale of straw. I use intensive gardening techniques and heavily mulch with straw to reduce the need for weeding and watering. In any case, The only way to get the bale home was to engage the seatbelt on the passenger seat, put the top down on the convertible and make the bale my travel companion. Of course, now I need to vacuum out the car interior! #creativefarming #strawbale #farmbyhand #tinyfarm #womenwhofarm

Many #strawbale homes have what's called a #truthwindow. A spot where you can see: "oh yes, really, the walls are made of straw". Why? Because when you walk inside a strawbale home, it looks like a beautiful, hand-plastered, thick-walled home. It doesn't smell like straw. It doesn't remind you of a barn. There isn't a bevy of mice running around. In fact, most people take an audible, deep relaxing breath as they walk into a strawbale home for the first time. There's an urge to gently touch the walls. I've seen kids instinctively hug the walls. So the truth window reminds people that under all of the beauty, is a simple, well-insulating strawbale. #naturalbuilding #clayplaster #permitapproved #beautifulbuildings #energyefficient #buildlikeagirl #buildlikewegiveadamn

Interesting, somewhat confusing, controversial #dailyplant2019 . This is Yellow Brandywine, a real favorite that I've ignored far too much over the past decade. Growing it in a #strawbale seems to suit it well, and it seems to like this year's weather so far. The potato leaf plant will produce large oblate deep yellow/pale orange #tomatoes🍅 . In 1890 the Henderson Seed Company released a variety called Shah as a "golden sport of Mikado". Their tomato Mikado is a large pink fruited potato leaf variety. Using today's known #tomato🍅 names, it is very likely that Henderson's Mikado is very much like, if not the same as or closely related to, Brandywine. Yellow Brandywine (which was sent to me by Barbara Lund of Ohio, @seed_savers_exchange member, in the late 1980s) is very likely very similar to that 1890 Henderson release Shah. It is unusual in having a tart, assertive flavor, different from most large orange or yellow tomatoes. Similar tomatoes are Elbe, Potato Leaf Yellow, and Aunt Gertie's Gold. #2019garden #fromthedriveway #epictomatoes #tomatostories #tomatotales #heirloomtomatoes #gardenhistory

Little pig, little pig, let me in! . I can't believe it, but my husband and I are thinking about building a straw house! . We spent a weekend at a 2-day workshop on Sustainable Home Design at the @endeavour_centre in Peterborough, ON. . So... What does 'sustainable home design' mean? It means choosing building products and materials that are easily renewed (and choosing companies that are actually renewing their resource), that do not contribute to climate change (did you know that concrete has a HUGE carbon footprint and literally takes water off the face of the earth FOREVER?!), and that are readily and locally available. . We learned about these options for 15 hrs over 2 days, so I'll just highlight the things that really struck me: •Red List Chemicals in building materials affect your health and the env't •Straw bale houses are cost effective, very warm (R-30+ rating), and up to 3X more fire resistant than regular houses. And... as you can see from the photo above, depending on design, they can look very "normal" •Depending on local rainfall, you can collect enough rainwater to live off of for all showering, cleaning, gardening and drinking throughout the year. It needs to be purified by an in-home system, but there's no need for over-treated municipal water •You can heat your water using the sun, and then use your traditional water heater to top up your water temp, if need be •It's possible to be grid-tied and feed the grid using solar panels; offsetting your energy use and contribution to the problem •A Passive Solar house uses the angles of the house and the sun to moderate temperature - keeping the house cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter . Many of the sustainable home ideas can be used for renos, too. There are also healthy alternatives to things like insulation and paint. I hope if you are planning to do anything to your home you will consider using materials that are much healthier for you and the environment. . Do better. Live better. . #home #homedesign #houses #renos #renovations #straw #strawbale #strawhouse #ecohouse #ecohousing #passive #passivesolar #solar #solarenergy #usethesun #redlist #littlepig #sustainable #sustainablehousing

Many of the sustainable home ideas can be used for renos, too. There are also healthy alternatives to things like insulation and paint. I hope if you are planning to do anything to your home you will consider using materials that are much healthier for you and the environment. . Do better. Live better. . #home #homedesign #houses #renos #renovations #straw #strawbale #strawhouse #ecohouse #ecohousing #passive #passivesolar #solar #solarenergy #usethesun #redlist #littlepig #sustainable #sustainablehousing)?>

It’s about designing and building a home to live well in. The home-owner who hired EarthCraft to design/build this 1100 sq ft straw bale participated in the building process with enthusiasm. During winter months he was able to keep his home warm with one small log per day. When it was 114 degrees outside in the past couple of summers, it stayed 75-80 degrees inside this home. A mini-split heating and cooling system was added for minimal use and optimal comfort. Join us this Saturday at the Boise Farmer’s Market to talk straw bale!

Custom Green Home Building is all about the details. When a home is designed to meet the criteria of the individual or family to begin with, opportunities for creativity and unique elements can be easily integrated throughout.

Plywood ceilings are in. I love them! Now that the ceiling is in, you can really see the impact of the #passivesolar design. Very little direct sunlight gets in the house after 8am. On a day like today, when it's 103°, that will make a big difference. #strawbale #buildingahouse #sustainabledesign #sacramento #strawbalehouse

Phew! It’s hard working in the hot sun. We are making headway on form building indeed. After constructing roof trusses which are doubling as form supports, we are driving stakes, setting the boards level and plumbing trusses. Not an easy task in compact rocky subsoil. . Seems like an overwhelming process, but soon enough we will have poured the concrete stem wall which our straw bales will rest upon. . This has been a trying process and are very grateful for the help Craig and Troy (Wren’s parents) are providing. Couldn’t do it without them. . Building the house of our dreams = tonnes of work. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
