Recently I was nominated for the Sunshine awards which is very humbling, there are a great many more blogs out there which are a lot more informative and committed than mine, blogs are a great way of bringing like minded people together. Over the next couple of days/weeks I'm going to talk about Blogs I follow and learn from.
Amongst these are:
Diary of a Suburban Gardener
First a Dream
Our French Garden
My Secret Garden
The Greening of Gavin
Some of these I have been reading for years others I have only been reading recently. They all have a common theme involving either, sustainable living, recycling or gardens.
Today I'm going to talk about Rhonda Hertzel and her blog Down__to__Earth. This was one of the first blogs I ever read, and right from the start I was absorbed by everything Rhonda had to say.
I have taken on board a lot of what she has written, and now am the proud mother of 6 chickens,(maybe more soon as I am hopeing to adopt some ex-battery hens,) and have used soooo many of her recipes. We no longer buy soap, as I make it, my son adores the chocolate chip cookie recipe which Rhonda put on her blog and there are so many other bits of advice which i have taken on i cant begin to reiterate.
Rhonda also wrote a book Called Down to Earth, which has been published by penguin and is a great read.
I have learnt so much from this lady and am in awe of her wisdom and patience with the world. Thank you Rhonda!
