Miscellaneous in May

Hello! So there is this big event called the Raw Spirit Festival:



It is taking place in Sedona, Arizona October 12-14th and it looks SOOOO amazing. This will be the third year it is being held. It seems to be all the craze in the raw food world. I knew about this festival last year and really wanted to go, but wasn't sure I could afford to and couldn't find anyone who could go with me. I was thinking of going alone anyway, and then a very generous friend of mine invited me to the Bahamas that same week and offered to cover my expenses. It was an offer I couldn't refuse. This year, I am pretty dead set on getting to the Raw Spirit Fest. The line up of speakers, chefs, facilitators, etc looks phenomenal. I had to smile at the home page of the Raw Spirit Fest because it is all the "Whos who"s behind the entire raw food movement! Its so weird to think that all these people whose books I have read and who have inspired me so much will be meeting in this one place. The price of the event is $300 for early birds and this includes 7 organic raw vegan meals catered by famous organic chefs. If anyone between New Orleans, LA and Sedona, AZ is considering going and might want to carpool, lets get in touch! (Also, to anyone planning on attending, if you purchase your ticket by clicking on the Raw Spirit Fest link/icons on my page, I will be eligible for a small discount and would be more than happy to split that discount 50-50 with you.)

I harvested some of my kohlrabi the other day and made a dill/kohlrabi salad with lemon juice, salt, olive oil, dill, and kohlrabi:





I found a really neat raw blog the other day that has some great stories, photos and information about wild foods and consciousness: http://www.rawrob.com/ Very interesting and informative. I found the entries about Ayahuasca especially interesting and will be researching this topic myself. For future reference, I have also included a link to Raw Rob's blog under "MY FAVORITE RAW BLOGS".

Enjoy!

Ohhhhhhh Audry! Already harvesting!?! That's soooooo awesome! That's it, I think I'm moving down to New Orleans! lol Leaves have only just started to come out around here this last week...

Still loving all of your pics and wishing I had more time to read through all of your posts. Ah well, things will eventually slow down on my end...

Have a beautiful, Sun-full day, Carmella

Carmella!!!!!!
Thanks for the wonderful comment! We are very lucky for the long growing season here in New Orleans. Please come move here or visit here ANYTIME! You would like our Southern hospitality down here, but I wonder that you might miss the mountains. We are flat and swampy - quite a different environment from where you live, I believe...

Hope things are coming along smoothly for you and all your projects:)

I agree with Carmella. I can’t believe you’re already getting food out of your garden. I may have to move to New Orleans too. We’re just now putting out tomato plants up here on the Washington coast.
