Patios and Logos
We are working feverishly on the Granary to be able to open our Farm Store & Gallery next weekend. Rog has installed a charming brick patio in front of the building and is now reconstructing the steps and pergola. He has been working on this project between rainstorms, before and after work - one day he got up at 5:30 a.m. to lay bricks! I hope it stops raining and dries up a bit one of these days so I can mow and plant. It is so saturated the ground is squishy.
After much vacillation, we have finally settled on a color scheme for our farm logo. Now I can get busy painting the sign, ordering business cards and T-shirts --nothing like waiting until the last minute!
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
