New Life

A moment needs to be taken in order to showcase and appreciate Spring for what it always provides to us, the beauty of new life.  After a winter hunkered inside filled with books and reflections on the past year, we have since inundated ourselves with projects and responsibilities at the start of this year's farming season.  Journeying through each day at such a rapid pace can detract from Spring's yearly gift to the Valley.  Just as with mushroom hunting, if you don't slow down and pay attention to your surroundings, you can so easily pass by the hidden treasures on the forest floor.  So here's to you World, for providing yet another awesome display of life at the beginning of our next dance around the sun.

Returning Soon...

After almost a full year spent away from the blog, the dedication has been reawakened.  We have both been extremely busy educating ourselves and others, and are still bursting at the seams to pass on the knowledge.  Feels good to be back

A brief recap of the year:
 We added a kitten
 And some livestock.
 We learned about bees.

 Bought so many seeds.
 We grew flowers,
and so much food,
 And fed it to ourselves and others.
 We found a new home in town
 But moved into the woods.
 We've begun a lifelong fungal foray.
 Have had a hell of a lot of fun doing it all.
O and we definitely took some rabbits on walks.
