Many of you found your way here knowing me as a high desert gardener, through Seedybeans Blog. Others may have found your way through my jewelry collections and many have meet me through the Parent and Child classes I offer in our community. Possibly you simply stumbled upon this little blog on your own….However you got here, welcome and allow me introduce myself……
My name is Erin and I am a mama, wife, homesteader, gardener, teacher, jewelry designer, crafter, and general creative Aquarian spirit. I live in the the high desert of New Mexico with my growing family on a tiny, overflowing piece of earth. With my many interests and endeavors I decided to create this blog, Seeds & Stones –A Life Homegrown, as a place to share ideas, tips, inspirations and the sweetness of life in hopes of sharing little light with the world. I hope you enjoy my musings and look forward to hearing from you.
Many Thanks and Enjoy!!

Hey Janice -Thanks so much for you nomination for the One Lovely Blog Award. I am new to most things blog and i wonder if there is a place I can learn more about this award. I so appreciate you reading my blog and sharing it with the world. I too enjoy your lovely blog. Thanks again!-Erin of Seeds & Stones.
Hi Erin. It’s my pleasure! I was curious to learn more as well and had done some googling to try to find more about it – I wound up reading some other people’s ‘acceptance posts’ and seeing some alternative logos. It is a peer to peer thing and contains an aspect of collective marketing too, if you’d want to call it that. One blogger suggested it had a sinister aspect (coercive like a chain letter) but I feel it’s perfectly fine to step away from it if it feels burdensome at all. Personally, I enjoyed recommending the group of blogs because I usually discover very wonderful new ones because they are read by people I like to read.
Thanks for your kind words about meliovore and for your great posts on a wonderful subject.
Just stumbled across your blog but will be an avid reader from now on 🙂
Wonderful!! Can’t wait to see what you are growing too.
Hello! I found your blog and am impressed by your high desert gardens! We moved to the area last year, and everything I plant seems to shrivel up in the wind or burn up in the sun!! I have a couple of questions. What are your favorite fruit tree varieties? How many gallons of water storage are you set up for? Thanks!!
Hi Nicole- Welcome to the area, and my blog. High Desert gardening can be super tricky, which is why I made a whole blog about those tricks:) As for Fruit trees, we love any thing from Tooleys trees in Truchas. Gordon Tooley is an amazing orchardist and only sells varities that will do well in Northern New Mexico. I will be planning an orchard this fall and will write a blog about that process… But to name a few we love our cherry trees, especially this year they have done amazingly!! We have a pie Cherry – North Star and a sweet Cherry. As far as water, we haven about 2,000 gallons and I would like about 2,000 more but we have a small place and cant really fit more tanks. I would say collect as much rain water as you possibly can, it will not go to waste! Good luck and stay in touch. Thanks for your questions, I always find them inspiring.
Thanks so much!
