I promised it wouldn't take me a long time to make an update and I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last posted. So much has been happening, getting a farm together was a huge challenge. A great friend up the road let us borrow her tractor to remove a layer of weedy topsoil, and replace it with a rich, certified organic layer of compost.
Crops are in the ground, and we have hundreds of heirloom tomatoes and pepper plants ready to start producing bountiful amounts of delicious produce. We also found a used greenhouse on Craigslist which was donated to us by a local family. We are using is as our farmstand, and right now we are selling Apple Butter, Pepper Jelly, Zucchini Relish, Eggs, Perennials, and any vegetables that are in season.
I took on an experiment a few months back that involved compost, perlite, 5 gallon buckets, a metal halide lamp, and carrot seeds. The end result were the massive carrots you can see in the above photo. I plan to do a YouTube demonstration soon, and in the meantime I am writing out a list of recipes for my upcoming posts.
I must say that the carrots grew wonderfully due to the right mix of perlite which allowed the carrots to expand down. Now that it's summer I don't need to grow them indoors anymore and have more in my garden to sell at our farmstand. Customers have been dwindling in slowly but surely and we are excited to finally be able to earn a small amount of money from a hobby we have both shared for so long. Stay tuned please! I have not, and will not abandon my blog! :)

"There isn't a product they make that I don't have. I buy all their products and each one impresses me. I make sure I stay stocked on their soaps. I take their soaps with me when I travel. I just bought their lotion and it's simply amazing. Nice aromas and leaves my skin feel super moisturized without that grease feeling. I just got a candle and I love it, very soothing and relaxing scent. I will continue to buy their products until they ban me. I just received an order today and I'm already planning my next order. Simply amazing, no regrets."
