We're not homesteders as such, but we do live a simple life that is in touch with the cycle of work and rest is evident throughout nature. Our approach to living, based largely on the reduction of wants and a mostly non-monetary return from our organic horticulture, bee keeping and other sorts of labor. Were living the good life along the Mississippi river valley in north eastern Iowa.

Lately, most of my forays into the timber have ended up as great exercise while I check out the topography or the wild flowers that are in bloom.
Occasionally, I would find a stray mushroom here or there but no church where you would have to get down on your knees and give thanks.
Tonight I had similar luck. With a pair here and a single there.
I found several that were old and dried up too.
There's always one more tree off in the distance that might have just the right conditions.
