*Date note:  Income Tax Day for the United States is traditionally on April 15 each year. This past year it was on the 17th because the 15th fell on a weekend. MareLin may have confused a few folks, so we just wanted to make that clear.

The Five Ws and One H – Episode 1 – Country Dwellers Podcast

Just some of the ley lines in our backyard.

Greetings one and all!
And we mean all.

First we want to thank all those that helped make this release possible, especially to The Viking and Babe. Without your support, none of this journey would be possible.

The Tarot Card of the Week is the Queen of Pentacles. Listen to the Podcast to hear MareLin’s reading.

This episode we talk about who we are, why we’re doing this podcast, where we are, what we plan to accomplish with this podcast, when you can find the podcast and deeper information than what we discuss on-air, and how all of this came to be.

Our podcast may be found on Google Play, iTunes, and Soundcloud, just look for “Country Dwellers.” ¬†If there’s a particular podcast portal you’d like us to also be available to, please let us know in the comments.

Here are the links as promised referred to in our first podcast:


A special treat for our inaugural podcast: Raspberry-Infused Mimosa

*Recipe of the Week:  Raspberry-Infused Mimosa РIngredients:  One shot (jigger) of Orange Juice, One shot of Pineapple Juice, Two shots of Prosecco or Champagne, Three fresh raspberries per glass. Mix liquids together in one glass, add fresh raspberries. Enjoy.

*Gardening Zones and Gardening to do in June

*Natural Pesticides for Rose Bushes: Two parts water, one part dish soap (not detergent), one part lemon juice. Feel free to add a little garlic and cooking oil, too, if you like. Spray on the aphid infested part of the plant. The force of the water from your sprayer is part of the control method, so don’t be afraid to really soak the little buggers.

*Uncle Ian’s

Hope you enjoy the podcast. Please leave any comments or questions here and we’ll do our best to answer them either here or on the podcast.

Blessed Be,

Runa & MareLin
