Even on the East Coast, it’s now Spring.

On a walk yesterday in the Port Townsend area of Northern Washington state I saw ferns sprouting out of the ground. Soon they will be sautéed  for great eating. Look up the recipes online for “fiddleheads.” Also ran across one—only one—morel mushroom. What a tasty thing.

Did you all know that we have an imprint called Process Media with a whole mess of titles in a “Self-Reliance Series” that provide useful, easy-to-follow and well-illustrated information regarding health, growing, and self-protection. You don’t want to be a forever-exploited consumer, and wish to know things that people generally did less than a century ago.
The most recent Self-Reliance book is Susan M. Parker’s Power of the Seed which explores the use of seeds for both medicinal and beauty use. Come on folks, this is all good to know, and not intimidating, at least the way these Self-Reliance Series books explain it: http://processmediainc.com/category/self-reliance/
Don’t be a victim of ignorance. Get to it. Get Self-Reliant!
