Our $5 Greenhouse...so far

Our Greenhouse journey began with a 1972 Lord & Burnham Gothic ORLYT Greenhouse donated by my good friend Matthew. His neighbor had decided to add an addition on to their house and did not want it anymore.  So Brad began the cumbersome job of dismantling the 100's of pieces and transporting them to our backyard.  The first dilemma was how to build the 2 1/2 ft. platform as the structural base for the greenhouse to sit on.  We started looking for materials to use as posts and boards for…

A trip to 7 C's Winery in Walnut Grove

Brad & I have been exploring the idea of making wine and mead lately. After gathering some persimmons from our yard we decided to make some home-made wine on Monday. Unfortunately we won't get to drink it until this time next year, but we had a lot of fun in the process. If you are familiar with persimmons they have lot's of seeds and are quite the sticky mess. We did manage to de-seed the 3 pounds we needed for our wine and are saving the seeds for future persimmon trees if you should need… Continue

Biodynamic Farming and Compost Preparation - Alternative Farming Methods

Biodynamic agriculture was the first ecological farming system to arise in response to commercial

fertilizers and specialized agriculture after the turn of the century, yet it remains largely unknown to the

modern farmer and land-grant university system. The contribution of biodynamics to organic agriculture is significant, however, and warrants more attention. The following provides an overview of biodynamic
