1  Re: Winter Book Swap 2019 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Ludi on: December 11, 2019 09:04:25 AM
Cadet120433 chose a spooky theme.  I'm thrilled by the book she sent!  I'm creating a family cemetery on our land, so this book of cemetery symbols is so appropriate:





The crafts; Bride of Frankenstein ornament, gravestone bookmarks, and cute ghost bunting!







The chocolate!



Thank you cadet120433 for the perfect package for me!   Kiss

I can't organize this but thought one of our many bird-lovers and cussing aficianadas might be interested.  Profanity-laden bird swap inspired by Effin Birds by Aaron Reynolds.

That forest sprite has an eerie face...OOOooooooo

Here's the spooky little Ninni that cmarion3 made for me, carrying a treat bag.  I especially like the color scheme of black, white, pink, and green.  And those treats look suspiciously tasty...



Thank you so much, cmarion3!

7  Moringa! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by Ludi on: September 09, 2019 10:16:23 AM
I'm having a ton of fun growing Moringa trees.  Moringa is a fast-growing subtropical tree that is considered one of the most nutritious plants on the planet.  I planted seeds of Moringa this Spring.  My first seedlings failed because it was still too cold, but the ones I planted later survived and are now over eight feet tall, blooming and setting pods.  Bumblebees love the flowers.

I've eaten the leaves in salads, mixed with other greens as cooked greens, and in a Moringa Chicken dish, recipe below:

Chicken Moringa!

4 boneless chicken thighs, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp turmeric
2 cups Moringa leaves


Saute chicken and onion until slightly browned, add tomato sauce, spices, and Moringa leaves.  Cover and simmer until chicken is tender.  Add water if necessary to desired thickness of sauce.  Serve over rice.

I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted!

No new Ernest embroidery, but here are two clothing/costume images:

10  Plenty o' Permaculture in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by Ludi on: April 24, 2019 05:55:24 PM
Wow, I sure miss this place! 

I haven't been crafting much lately, but I have been gardening up a storm. No completed garden projects, but lots of in-process gardening.

Low-water Garden growing Mountain Pima Cristalino de Chihuahua and Lofthouse Harmony Grain Maize Corn, Mayo Kama and Lofthouse Smallest Fruited Moschata Squash, and Tohono O'odham and Lofthouse Tepary Beans.



Kitchen Garden with a lot of stuff:



Fig I grew from a cutting from my dad's neighborhood. (Free fig tree!)
