We visited New Entry Sustainable Farming Project’s new site at Moraine Farm in Beverly. It was beautiful. The whole place is inspiring!
We just LOVED the sculptures, mini golf and tiny farm at Big Stone in Minnetrista, Minnesota.

I like to add herbs to my bouquets. Here is one from last August. Can you smell the dill?
Now that is is winter it is seed sorting time at my house. The anise hyssop smells strong (I love it!) I harvest what I grew and package it up to share with others. Maybe I will sell some of these seeds someday. We like adding little baggies of them in with holiday gifts.
