Welcome to my blog. I'm looking forward to sharing my daily thoughts on life on my farm. So far, it's been an exciting year. Our berry harvest this season was just huge and there are still many wonderful and tasty berries out in the fields. Our caneberries (blackberries, raspberries, boysenberries and marionberries) are winding up, but there are plenty of blueberries available for u-pick.
Just yesterday, my wife planted a few currant plants on the farm. Apparently, they were smuggled out of Finland in the mid 1970's by her father's cousin. Anyway, the family has been propagating the plants for years and we've added them to the end of one of our blueberry patches. If they survive the move, we'll have just a handful of currants next year.
Look back here for updates on the farm life....
