Odd as I am sure it will appear to some, I can think of no better form of personal involvement in the cure of the environment than that of gardening. A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world. He is producing something to eat, which makes him somewhat independent of the grocery business, but he is also enlarging, for himself, the meaning of food and the pleasure of eating.

goodbye, arya

Today we found Arya fallen in the chicken run. It is difficult to tell the cause of her demise, but from all appearances, she was most likely egg bound. She gifted us with eggs –¬†probably around¬†900 total – for almost three years. Thank you, Arya. Even though you had a flighty personality and hated people, you (and your eggs) will be missed!


How are these in my yard? Thanks, previous owner, for this one.


Love seeing these ostentatiously bright flowers throughout the yard.
