We're in Year 7, and 'growing'!

When we think back to the first days of farming, we really almost came upon it by accident. 

Deb had always wanted a studio, so we'd hired a neighbor to break the soil in an area in the pasture, near Uncle Herman's old farmstead, to build a garage.  Wouldn't you know -- the contractor said "Hey - wouldn't that be great up there on the hill?" instead, with a view over lake AND pasture AND woods, and we concurred.  But that original bit of broken sod couldn't go to waste!  We planted a garden.  Most tomatoes.  And they grew.

And grew.

The garage / studio went up on the hill.  And the garden flourished below.  Within a year or two we were up to our butts in tomatoes.  And learning how to manage deer.  And found out that yes, they like green cabbage, but not red ones.  And no, fences don't keep them out.  (Ask Pat about our first "Deer Playpen"....)

So here we are, years later.  We've been through Lake Superior Sustainable Agriculture's "Farm Beginnings" class.  We've filed farm taxes.  We've expanded and expanded and fenced and fenced, into the sky and below ground.  We have learned and learned - about soil.  About pests.  About yields.  About sustainability.  About harvesting delicious food.  We've applied for a grant to build a High Tunnel.  And mostly, we have so enjoyed meeting you, and bringing you that weekly haul of fresh garden goods.

So thankful for it all - we've learned so much, and we're still learning (and loving it).  Thanks for growing with us along the way!
