Dirt is a farmer’s canvas.
As we look at this recently disked patch of land, we feel excited and grateful. We see what can be and what will be as we plan to plant. The quality of the dirt is one of our highest priorities and one of the ways we prepare it is by adding compost or gypsum to loosen the soil and help with drainage.
You think our Big Green Tractor is s…er…simply amazing? We think so too and yes, it goes slow and we can make it go faster.
Next time you see a big, smooth(ish) patch of dirt, try looking at it through a farmer’s eye and you’ll see abundant potential and beauty.
Since we can’t call ourselves “elves” yet, we aren’t sure what name we should use for ourselves at this time of year as we are preparing and making and sending wreaths just in time for Thanksgiving! Our Fresh and Fragrant Wreath (see featured image) is a big hit again this year, a perfect combination of fragrant fresh eucalyptus, preserved fall leaves, wheat, dried cherry peppers (they look like mini pumpkins to me), yarrow and sweet annie – all woven together to create a hullabaloo of scent and color.
We can feel the Holidays approaching and the buzz of excitement is contagious.
We are harvesting our broom corn today and we snapped a few pictures just in time!
