It's been hard to keep this one a secret, but excited to finally announce that as of September 2015, all Little Seed products will be produced using 100% renewable energy - we're going solar! We've long been committed to having a positive impact on the environment, so after years of hoping and planning, we're proud to finally achieve this goal. Our hearts are happy.
Have you been eating your flowers? There's a special joy that only comes after popping a beautiful bloom into your mouth and discovering that the flavor is just as exquisite as it's colorful beauty. If you've never tried them, never fear! After last week's love for my squash blossom Instagram post, I decided to induct as many of you as would like to join me to the joys of being a "floravore" with this simple recipe.
It's already feeling like Summer over here in our neck of the woods, but the Spring rains are just finally coming to visit. We've been getting afternoon boomers that make the pups playful and our squash plants happy. The lightning bugs have been spectacular.
Over the past 2.5 years we've literally worked day in and day out to get our feet on the ground and the farm established. From our very first blog post while we were still city dwellers, we've been on a mission fueled by love and passion for our environment, our community, and each other. It hasn't been easy, but by the end of 2013 James was able to quit his day-job and throughout the summer we started to see a light at the end of the tunnel as more and more customers fell in love with our soaps and the business edged closer to reaching a point of financial sustainability. It's a huge step for us and we're so proud and happy to see Little Seed growing and so thankful for all of your support and encouragement along the way.
Every year around this time I find myself wondering how Summer has slipped away so swiftly. As much as I love Fall and its tee shirt weather (yep!) days and cool cozy sweater nights, when the chill starts to creep in, I get a little wistful and can't help but think "Wait! I'm not ready for Winter!". This year's Summer's end was especially poignant. Our son George turned 1 and his babyhood is tiptoeing away along with the sunny evenings and fireflies. The light has been so beautiful, a last hurrah before it leaves us for the rest of the year.
