We have quite a week in front of us.
The Homesteading Life Conference in Hannibal, Missouri happens this coming Sunday and Monday, so I need to prepare for a long, long drive and a couple of gardening talks. It will be fun to see Doug and Stacy again.
My son Ezekiel of watermelon growing fame will also join me to give a talk on his landrace melon project.
In related news, we have finalized the details for SCRUBFEST II, and it’s going to be awesome. We have more speakers and vendors, plus Scrubland Farmz has a ton more plants. SCRUBFEST is the must-attend Gardening event in North Florida. We had a killer time last year, with a great crowd and a ton of awesome edible plants. You have to attend, if you can. It’s a ton of fun and you’ll meet people who are really serious about growing food and making permaculture work in Florida.
We may post a video this week – not sure yet, since we haven’t actually planned out our itinerary for the weekend. Once that is settled it will make other things easier. All I can think about right now is things like, “Man… I need to put the other bench seat in the van,” and “I wonder if we should bug our old friends up North and crash with them, or should we get a hotel room in some big city,” and “We should really grab some decent food for the road so we don’t end up eating Pringles and drinking Dr. Pepper again.”
Anyhow, if you think of it, pray I can organize everything well, that our vehicle runs fine, and that the trip is a blessing to others.
