On this Friday of spring break, the day opens with clear skies. The weather gods insist we had better enjoy it - this sunny day does not travel in packs. It's a loner, wafting briefly into our soggy lives before visiting some other, more deserving place.
But, we're going to make the most of it! Our little starts can turn their faces to the sun while the mush around them dries out a little, our greenhouse will be toasty and humid, making for happy tomato babies, and this mama is taking her boy and his bud kayaking at fabulous Dockton Park, complete with picnic blankies and snacks for the moms.
I am a 50-year old community engagement manager, wife, mom and sort of farmer with a passion for sharing life and love through vibrant and delicious food. I work to slowly (very slowly) build a place where people come to know their food and take pleasure in its journey. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful island community outside Seattle, surrounded by nature and exceptional people, especially my loving and supportive Aussie husband, our amazing son, and a small band of fiercely dedicated friends. This site is dedicated to sharing what I learn as I stumble through everyday lessons on farming, animals, growing healthy food, parenting, and what the future holds.
