Let the harvest begin!

Despite the early spring, dry summer, and usual threats of mites and fungus, the beans are coming in pretty close to last year’s yields. Of course, Tommy just started cutting yesterday and one field does not an average make, but it’s fun to relish in the hope of a decent crop… if only for a day or two.

Sharing the land

One of the best parts about living in the country, is sharing the lifestyle with others. This weekend, we hosted a retreat for the AIGA chapter at University of Wisconsin – Whitewater and thoroughly loved giving 11 college kids the run of the farm.

The leaders of this graphic design club held lengthy discussions under the twinkle lights in the chicken coop, hiked down the lane with Bob the Dog (our recent adoptee), picked veggies in the garden, sang their lungs out on a hay ride, and captured this beautiful and playful photo at sunset last night.

They left with a strategic plan to ensure the continued strength of their club and loads of memories from a weekend in the country. I’m relishing those same memories and looking forward to sharing our place with them again next year.
