Corn is getting bigger!

This photo shows both our excitement about this year’s experiment with the Native American Three Sisters companion approach (Corn, Beans & Squash)  and are thankfulness that our sprayer for foliar feeding is finally working.  Nice work on pump replacement Mari.   So the corn is looking good so far, but we’ll see what happens.  Today […]

Pics and Gratitude of the Week

Safe to say a week with 50 degrees and raining as well as 90 degrees and blazing takes its toll on farmers and all that we tend.  That said, we have weathered it decently and are thrilled with the change in temps.  We share with you a few moments (in images & videos) that boosted […]
