In the Garden


The clouds above us join and separate,
The breeze in the courtyard leaves and returns
Life is like that so why not relax?
Who can stop us from celebrating?
-Lu Yu



We have always been inspired by the biodynamic farming philosophy which all started when I found a copy of The Backyard Homestead Mini-Farm Guidebook, by John Jeavons, J. Morgador, and Robin Leler in a give away box outside the library years ago.  I think we have read that book inside and out.  The philosophy of permaculture design is a new one to us, with which we are intrigued and studying avidly.  It is so exciting to put some book knowledge along with several years of gardening experience into practice!
