The Summer Issue of From Scratch Magazine

These are the times that try men’s souls.

If you decide to try and live your life with some sort of awareness of the rhythms of nature, you’re in the same boat. This is the time of year when the flowers start blooming, the bees start buzzing and the harvests start coming in.

That means there’s canning and freezing coming down the tracks like a freight train of work, it’s time to start fighting the insects and diseases that hit your garden and you’ve probably got a ton of work in the household that languishes because of all that other stuff you’re dealing with.

On top of all this, Summer is the time when things just HAPPEN: Babies get born, festivals are underway, Farmer’s Markets are hopping, pastures are being expanded, life is just going nuts!

Summer it is a coming and that means hotter weather and the latest issue of From Scratch Magazine. This is the special beekeeping issue. Everything from how to start beekeeping to saving the bees. We also included a beautiful Kitchen Renovation from Farmhouse38, the healing qualities of rose and help for those thinking about homeschooling.
