Our cinder block stepping stones in the creek have passed the one year point still looking solid and firm.

We've adjusted our carrot harvesting strategy and I've got a comparison post between Ariat vs Georgia Boot.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton have combined their skills and labor to carve out a living in Southwest Virginia. One thing that makes that possible is their new kind of chicken waterer they make and sell which helps to keep poultry water clean and poop free.
