We harvested our last tomato this week along with making some progress on the composting toilet project.

Our no-till method of gardening is starting to show some impressive results.

Six people showed up for our Seed Swap on Saturday, and it went so well we're talking about doing it again in the Spring.

There's some useful comments on my post comparing the hauling capacity of a golf cart to an ATV.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton like taking pictures to document the growing season and share with their readers. If you have chickens then they have a new type of chicken waterer that might be worth checking out if you're tired of cleaning poop out of the old style containers.
