After ten years blogging on about gardening and motherhood here at Seeds & Stones, I have moved most of my content and added new juice to my new website, Erin Growing Home. It’s been a slow migration I started over a year ago, but if you haven’t already checked it out, you really should. Growing Home has lots of my garden blog posts, but I have also added classes, recommendations and of course the every popular Instagram feed… But perhaps most importantly if you sign up for my Erin Growing Home Newsletter you will receive my latest and most dearest project, a carefully crafted Planting Ca ..read more

It is spring time! The shade of green deepens by the day and my garden is the happiest it will be all year! Beofre i dive into planting this weekend I pause for thought and ask myself “What is happening in my garden?  What will grow this year, what will perish? What will I tend and what will I compost?” Just like a family, the garden is always there, ever rooted, but never the same. Every season new things come in strong while others fade away. When I look around this morning, I see peonies popping up that I thought had surely died. I wonder why our lilacs only give a few blooms when the ..read more

The Soulful Art of Sorting Seeds
Seeds & Stones

I have been sorting a lot over here lately; trying to evaluate, release and upgrade. During this process I have been shifting through this little blog of mine, a chronicle of the past ten years of my life as Seeds & Stones. I have come across some gems in these archives and this essay about sorting seeds is perfect for today, as, like every year in late winter, I am doing the same sacred act of sorting my seeds. This week we also did our seed blessing ceremony, because not only does every garden start with a seed, but first a prayer. Seed Blessing Ceremony for the Seeds of 2021 The Soulful ..read more

Hello Out there

Hello out there, can you hear me? It seems I have fallen silent again, or rather the outside world has fallen more silent to my over burdened ears…. sure has been noisy in here… 3 kids in 950 sq feet for 9 months on end has been… well a lot! I have been joking with friends, “Oh you think 9 months is a long time, we have been doing this for 9 years!!” So yes, I have reached a new level of exhaustion… but I must admit, I do it to myself! Like taking on farming as a hobby this year, like ‘yeah more work is fun!!’ But all sarcasm aside, if you know me at all you know not only is growing fun, it is ..read more

I have three children who I have been guiding through life and learning since they got here.  Homeschooling you could call it, or life schooling, or love schooling, we are all learning as we go and most of the time we don’t really call it anything but the way things are!  I am not an expert and frankly will never be because that is just not how life is with ever growing, changing things!  However, I have googled Waldorf Homeschooling more times in the past ten years than you could ever imagine and have learned a lot and brought a lot to my family & community along the way.&n ..read more

Since it is Mother’s day, and all a mother really wants is help in her garden…I thought I would share the garden I recently put in for my mom.  Mom needs an easy, low maintenance garden that is safe from animals, wind, children, birds and well everything the wild west will throw at her!  She wants to grow herbs and salad greens which she eats daily, as well as some other vegetable that she loves.  Because she lives in the windy, exposed high desert, we needed a container garden situation.  Wooden beds work well, but splinter in the sun and the nice ones are pretty pricey so ..read more

Happy Earth Day- which is every day for me, but it always good to remember where you came from, your mother earth! Today I got a handful of texts and calls asking me the exact same question… Me….”Hello, growing home hotline” Friends….”Help! I planted my seeds over a week ago and nothing seems to be happening, is something wrong?” My first thought was, ‘a watched pot never boils’… are we in our gardens a little too much that are seeds are getting shy? I doubt it.  Maybe something is in the stars…but after the new moon sap with rise again so things should start to sprout right out, but seed ..read more

Easter morning, the sun still rises over the mountains and the tulips still burst forth.  Prayers of hope, health and new life are stronger today than any Easter I can remember.  This morning my children get my attention, marveling in the miracle of colored eggs and a few new books.  They are the hope for the world and today their joy brings me deep into my own, being grateful for just having them, and just to be with them is a gift many won’t be able to enjoy today.   If you are blessed to be with children today, here is a little story you could share. Here is Suzanne Dow ..read more
