'A little rain and a little sunand a little pearly dew and a pushing up and a reaching out. Then leaves and tendrils all about!' -Children's Song, 1800s

We grew stuff, and it's exciting. Big plans and little knowledge is how we jumped in, and we're chowing down on fresh lettuce, kale and broccoli, with lots more to soon join our dinner table.

Our experimental year has been a success. breannapeterson-1-6breannapeterson-2breannapeterson-3breannapeterson-2 (1)breannapeterson-1-7breannapeterson-10breannapeterson-12breannapeterson-13breannapeterson-14breannapeterson-16
