Introduction A creative blog about two girls living, recycling, gardening, and growing in sunny Southern California: Mama Turtle and her daughter, the infamous Turtle Princess. Mama Turtle grew up on a small chicken farm in Missouri. There, she learned many things that a lot of city kids have no clue about. She learned how to grow vegetables, raise animals, and cook just about anything that had a recipe, and if it didn't, Mom taught her how to make one up. They recycled anything that was useful in their own way, since there were few recycling centers then and there for anything but metal. What didn't go to the compost pile for the garden, got reused in everyday projects. They burned wood for heat and in the winter used the woodstove for just that - a stove! You could walk in the house and smell the slow simmering pot of beans or soup that were cooking on top, usually accompanied by fresh baked goodies from the oven. Her blog "Turtles Eat Lettuce" is a continuation of those life skills, as she teaches them to her own daughter and anyone else who cares to learn!
