A small, diverse permaculture farm in beautiful SE Minnesota - our dream come true life focused on Local Food, Local Art, Local Music.

We have scarcely any snow yet this winter, perhaps two inches on the ground right now at most. So I was delighted while taking a back road home today to be driving along a hilltop cornfield where all the snow had blown into the ditch, deep enough for the wind to create snow sculptures.
The barren cornfield. Don't let that brilliant blue sky fool you --it was very cold with a brisk breeze and my fingers were instantly numb. Why do I always get inspired to take snow photos on such nippy days?
Sharp shadows highlight the windswept snow sculptures.
This snow sculpture looked like a jumbled pile of gigantic books..
Snow with Dairy Queen curls.
Weeds, snow, wind, sunshine and shadows - what a great combination
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.
