    August Bounty at Rainshadow

    Being the steward of a farm is to experience magic.  I am as close as one can get to life force.  And I am carried along with it from Februray to August, for example, without a moment to reach out to the world of interwebs.  I don’t think it is possible to catch up with [...]

    Shear Effect

      I would like to share with you a note that I received today.  This has a little bit to do with me, but it is also some incredible science about what leafy greens do for you.  Thank you Dr. Perry Chinn for sharing.  This means so much to me. Hi Sarahlee,   I was [...]
