This is the time of year for tucking in your garden beds for a long winter’s night. In a typical year when I have a weekly prison crew and monthly local volunteers, the garden clean-up would be nearly done but 2020 insists on a different pace. I’m ok with that or at least I am for today.
I have a tomatillo bed that hasn’t been attended to. At first glance, the beds look a mess: soggy tomatillo plants, rotting tomatillos, and perennial grass sneaking in. Upon further, closer inspection I see intricately designed tomatillo exoskeletons with tiny seeds inside.

During a time of Advent, Winter Solstice, pandemic, dark and light, let this be our benediction.
WORDS OF WISDOM – THOUGHTS FROM GRETCHEN
Greetings dear friends and colleagues,
Harmony Hill is known for so many things, but one of the things which people love most is the FOOD! Our amazing Kitchen Staff puts so much love, attention and INTENTION into the food, it is no wonder people rave about it. Long in the works, we just published our new cookbook, Seeds of Nourishment, and I am so excited to be able to share it with you that it is now available for pre-order! Every recipe in the cookbook was developed by our staff and represent some of the most popular dishes to ever come from our kitchen. In this Holiday time, I hope you’ll invite Harmony Hill into your home, by getting a cookbook and letting us inspire the food adventures of you and your loved ones!
Blessings to each of you.–Gretchen
We’ll provide you with weekly inspirational poems and reflective readings.
