This past weekend, our good friends Dirk and Dixie called and asked if they could come do farm work for a couple of hours. Wow! We have lists that are miles long so of course the answer was yes. We told them they could tie up tomatoes and then switched the job to planting beans when they arrived. Dirk accused of a bait and switch. We planted pole and bush beans with catching up on each others' lives in between. Nice! Our faithful farmhands, my mom and dad, came both Saturday and Sunday and Rachel was home from college to bake a great chocolate birthday cake, plant beets with me, and work on irrigation with Mark.
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
