Seeds collected in the fall have dried out in the round barn.
These green bean seeds are very satisfying to clean… foot stomping to release the beans from their crunchy shells.
Kentucky Wonders and…
Overwintering Cabbages are still going strong…

Amy is doing a Micro-dairy course run by Candace Jagel at WSU Extension.
A very comprehensive course that included a trip to Heritage Farm, to see their dairy set up and to meet their new milking cow, Rose. We dream of adding a few milking goats to the family in the future.
In the meantime we are getting to know these gorgeous girls at Talking Horse Farm. They are a rare meat breed and are living under manager Rob Waldron’s care for this season.
