It’s easy to be so distracted by the vestiges of winter that you fail to notice the subtle signs of spring. Sure it was 8 below zero last night and the ground is covered in ankle-deep snow and there is ice on driveways and sidewalks and, yeah, Jimmy the groundhog proba...

At lunch on Friday, the first day of the MOSES conference, we met Rick. He was eating alone at a crowded table. We chose the two open seats opposite him. He was quiet and unassuming with beautifully weathered skin and a shy smile. Middle-aged, like us. Though he was qu...

Kelly and I attended our third Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) conference this weekend. As usual we met a lot of farmers, learned a lot of farm stuff and found ourselves to be inspired about our agrarian existence and our chosen commitment to...

O Christmas Tree

O Christmas Tree

How lovely are thy branches.

Wait. Is it O Christmas Tree or Oak Christmas tree? You decide.

In recent years we have been a tree-optional holiday household. We settled into the sensible routine of waiting to shop for a tree until there was...

There are things drier than our farm--old skeletons in the Mohave desert, dehydrated popcorn farts, toast from last week that I forgot to take out of the toaster. But not many things. It is the end of the second month of our drought. When I say that, people look confus...
