Well it was cold and rainy all week. We did have a few lovely moments of sunshine but they were pretty fleeting and usually followed by rain, thunder, lightening, hail or all of the above. We did not necessarily lose any plants to the weather but we lost growth. The eggplant and zucchinis seem to
It is warming up here, we have many baby animals at the farm and more to come in the next couple weeks, Gregina is definitely pregnant and looking it more and more very day. We will be selling piglets once they are weaned, we will let you know once they are born. We are working

I didn't want to write about how we are having a snow-less winter since maybe it would jinx us into getting 18 feet like Alaska, but it's so bizarre I have to say something about it. It is now January 9th 2012 and so far we have not even gotten a real foot of snow,
We are into the second week of december and I am still tracking in great globs of mud whenever I enter the house. It seems to strange to still be working the soil and getting in posts so far into winter. I know the snow is coming but the radio just predicts a chance of
