peas are growing! 
We have been steadily gaining members for a couple months.  And there are still spots left!!!  We'd love it if you joined our CSA, too! 

Elisabeth and Camilla and I get together every Monday and Wednesday to spend some time on the land and with the seeds and seedlings.  I've been appreciating the bird-songs more this year than any other.

Yesterday we planted onions and kale into the ground from flats started back in April.  We fed them with composted manure and smelly compost tea made from stinging nettle and comfrey.
