lentil soup with kabocha squash and garlic from the garden.

Yikes, Kate looks a little demonic! But also so attractive!

Daily Snack

Daily Harvest

A tuber from Bolivia called Llacon. Kind of tastes like jicama.

It can also be spelled yacón. To see more about this tuber, click here: Yacón

The craziest thing about them is that they contain undigestible sugars in them! What?!


We harvested casting (fertilizer/poop) from our worm bin. The chickens were excited. We also made liquid fertilizer from the gross juice that collects below the worm bin. You dilute the grossness 10:1. It looks like delicious dark beer and smells like satan.
