Mountains of Food

As the holiday season comes to a close, we have piles of food all over the house that we simply can't eat as fast as it needs to be eaten--two turkeys, one an over-cooked failure suitable for chili and the other perfect sandwich material; a bushel of apples needing to be canned; scalloped potatoes and… Continue reading Mountains of Food

How it Started

I could start with when we met, our farm experiences, our first dog together, our respective experiences with farms. In time. But this time I'll start with the simplest place: Our house.
