I was doing some fall chores, digging out the humanure hacienda, trimming some weeds around the cabin and prepping the site for the new sauna. While getting ready to warm up the ATV, I saw something dart past me in the garage – at first I figured it was one of our many chipmunks, but … Read more
We tried planting some finger potatoes this year – so far, they’re delicious and healthy! Really pleased!
