These past couple of weeks I've noticed a that some of our regular content producers in the alternative lifestyles area have gone quiet. I hope it's just temporary and that we'll get to see them producing content again soon. In the meantime we still have some prompts from the communities if you need some ideas to get the creative juices flowing and some posts which will hopefully inspire you in other ways.
Things happening in the community.
And a reminder to any needleworkers out there that @needlework Monday community is running its draw every week for those posting on Mondays in the community. The winner gets a 500 HP delegation for a week.
Some highlights of the week
When it comes to vegan cheese, the ready made versions are often full of ingredients you don't really want to be putting in your body, which rather goes against the ethos of a healthy vegan diet. Luckily, as @amy-goodrich demonstrates, you can make your own from scratch.
It's commonly known that ladybirds/ladybugs are avid eaters of aphids and thus considered friends in the garden to help eliminate these pests. It wasn't until fairly recently I learnt that not all ladybirds are a gardeners friend. Some of them would actually rather eat your plants than the aphids. Here @rokhani shares some photos of the larvae of one of these particular types of ladybirds and the damage they can cause.
We garden for so many reasons, most obviously to produce beauty and food, however, gardening for health and relaxation isn't often mentioned, but two posts this week reflect upon this. First up we have @homestead-guru with some instruction on creating an outdoor zen garden.
Then next up we have a discussion from @dwiitavita on how using your free time gardening could improve your overall health.
Each week one of our featured authors will be selected to be a 5% beneficiary of The Lotus Garden newsletter. This week @amy-goodrich will receive this award.
