Things that are special.



Mother nature sure does know how to make me smile. Ahh, the simple things.

And THEN, one day, God said "let there be tomatoes"


I am having a love affair, with tomatoes. We have two huge fields of tomato plants here at the farm and, it is what we sell the most of at the markets. They also get included almost every week in the CSA boxes as well. Some of my favorites are the black cherries, the sun golds and the juliets. YUM!

Go ahead, drool.




These pictures were taken at the Tahoe City farmers market. It is the furthest we travel to sell our vegetables at about 2 hours away. Go local!

Bowling Rules and so do root vegetables

Dang! Mother nature is so cool and so is whoever invented bowling. Check these potatoes and a few shots of a night on the town bowlin' some balls!

2 cents worth millions

Peoples, been here 5 weeks.... is it time to start trying to figure out what do to next? As per usual, I am fixating and spinning and full of equal parts excitement and worry. So, go ahead, give me your two cents. I am not above admitting that I need help and lots of discussion time so, here are a few of the ideas that are on the horizon. Some are briefer experiences than others. Ideally I would like to spend the winter somewhere warm. But, if NYC beckons, I am so there.

  • NYC part two
  • artist residency, do you have connections?
  • wwoof Australia
  • more farming, perhaps Hawaii
  • Rachel? learn to sail? Florida?
  • sustainable building techniques Washington State internship
  • Portland
  • work on a cruise ship
  • bike across America, wanna come?
  • find someone somewhere who is willing to teach me furniture building and upholstering
  • camp out with family somewhere and finally finish that album
  • trade loretta for a winnebago and become a traveling sales woman
So, go ahead, if you are so inclined give me your thoughts, whatever they may be. I am only hoping that with your input one of these ideas or something else entirely will shine brighter than the rest and I'll have my North Star.
