Our sweet Nora left us March 14, 2011.  She is sorely missed.

    We are so very sorry to hear your 4-legged family member died. We nearly lost our little guy late last October from a disease that attacks the pancreas. Our vet saved him. We feel so lucky.

    I keep checking here to see how your farm is coming along. I am amazed that you already started spring planting! Wow, what city-slicker knew you could do that! Take care, all of you.

      Hello Chris!
      Thanks for your sympathies. It’s been a difficult adjustment. Nora was my constant companion. Anyone who came to the farm would have met her.

      How did your garden do last year? Do you winter anything over? The hoop house makes an extended growing season easy. We are currently eating salads from last year’s spinach, lettuce, and mesclun. This week, we need to get out and plant more carrots and some daikons.

      Hope all is well with you,

    Hi Janice. How did our last year’s garden go, you ask? It went into the trash well before summer was over, is how it went! lol Some sort of variety of bugs have taken over not only our veggie garden but they are also in the lawn. We are going to try to kill off whatever without killing our dogs and the wild birds before we re-work the veggie garden! Meanwhile, I love how your hoophouse works…

      Do you know what kind of bugs they are?

    There appear to be three kinds.

    Some on some plants are as if a powder was sprinkled on the leaves, some are tiny white dots that are even in the lawn, some are circles on tree leaves that get larger until the leaves are black as night and as crispy as a potato chip! I mean to say, wow! Nasty! …Or a horticulturist’s delightful learning tool!!!
