A place for us to share with the world what goes on here - warts and all, and to fantasize about someday really understanding what it means to be "self-sufficient"...

Yes, these are "ichi-go". (Japanese for strawberries.) It's that time of year, and my nephew is here from Japan, so off we went to pick some strawberries. Despite the brutal heat, it took less than an hour to pick 8 quarts.
Once back at the farm, the cousins wasted no time in getting cool-water gun fights!
We're starting a week of heat, perfect vegetable growing weather; our job is just to keep everything hydrated.
