First Thoughts on The 2019 Food and Rum Festival Events in Barbados.

This is the tenth anniversary of the Food and Rum Festival in Barbados. It is now a decade old. I’ve been going to these events every year as long as I am in the country.  I’ve been to food demonstrations, rum tastings and food events. This year feels smaller than past years. This year’s events…

A Composting Journey.

Composting. Seems like a big topic. Gardening on a whole sometimes feels so overwhelming that it doesn’t seem worth it. Just buy all your food at the grocery store and don’t worry about it too much. Unfortunately, I am a glutton for punishment and I started a garden about a year ago with very limited…

Current State Of Affairs, Part 2

Almost a year ago I wrote the first ‘Current State Of Affairs‘. After a year of blogging, a lot of improvements have been made but for the most part not that much has changed. There are so many aspects to blogging that it still feels incredibly overwhelming. Much of what I do here is very…
