The photo above is of a Polyphemus Moth that we caught as a caterpillar. We put it in a box with a leafy twig, upon which it promptly built a fine cocoon. We kept it until it emerged as a beautiful moth. The large "eye" on each of its lower wings earned it it's name, after the cyclops in the Greek legend of Polyphemus.
Here I will share some of the traditional harvesting, foraging, food-making, and drink-making activities that I enjoy, and that we do as a family to stay connected to each other, our history, and nature. Enjoy!
