I have such a back log of correspondence concerning Farm Blogs from Around the World, I am embarrassed at how rude I've been to the many people who have written to me, bringing my attention to wonderful new farming blogs.
In my defense I have been writing a rather large novel over the last nine months, which is now with my literary agent and should be about to go out to publishers. (For more information please visit www.ianwalthew.com)
OK, following on from my last post I've been pleased to be introduced to a terrifically well-written, well researched blog called Fr. Peter's Environmental Notes
Based in the U.K it's
"a resource for moral & environmental thoughts from a Christian viewpoint"
Father Pete's hope is that this blog "!will be of use to anyone who is concerned about the present situation of Climate Chaos and wants to do whatever they can in order to help to ease the problem."
You don't have to be a Christian to enjoy this blog - it's well written, well-researched and thoroughly deserving of a visit.
"ALL OF CREATION GOD GIVES HUMANKIND TO USE. IF THIS PRIVILEGE IS MISUSED, GOD'S JUSTICE PERMITS CREATION TO PUNISH HUMANITY". Hildegarde von Bingen (1098-1179)
Father Pete also has another blog of simple money saving D.I.Y ideas that cover projects from cooking to gardening, and which he adds to a regular basis.
"TO INVENT, YOU NEED A GOOD IMAGINATION AND A PILE OF JUNK," so said Thomas Edison. I am sure that God did not intend us to sit at a desk for eight hours a day, to eat refined food and ready meals and never stretch our creative potential. God is a creator, we are made in His image, therefore we are also creators. The important thing when using our creative ability, in garden, kitchen or workshop is not to expect success every time but only once in a blue moon!
