Prep for CSA!

This year we upgraded our herb garden to an above ground herb garden so that you don't have to bend over as much to pick your herbs! See the little bed to the right of the barn? So far it has oregano, tarragon, sage, thyme, parsley, chives and mint growing in it. The warmer weather herbs will come next. Unfortunately it'll be another year before we can afford to paint the barn- so it'll continue to be an eyesore. But at least it has a nice green new roof!

Spinach is growing along with swiss chard and scallions in this plot. The rest of the plot will be for potatoes.

If anyone would like lilacs--- send us an email and come on over and get some lilacs. And while you are at it- come buy some grass fed beef!

Things look great on the farm! The barn has "rustic" charm. People pay a lot of money to get that! haha..
We just ordered a variety box from you and we can't wait. Meat the way nature intended - who woulda thunk!
Looking forward to the chicken, also.
Thanks for keeping us up to date on the farm goings ons...

I love your website and I think your barn looks perfect just the way it is.

The herbs sound really yummy. You are so thoughtful to plant an above-ground garden. Have you heard of straw bale gardening? I just heard of it.
