Tree peony, shitakes, and composting toilets
Great things are happening on the farm. The tree peony is blooming and the fragrance is something I could lose myself in, gladly. I thought it would look more like a single, but it's ruffled just like the regular peony. Last year it budded up but never bloomed, so this is a real treat. I want to be with it all the time. Weirdo, you say? Maybe you're the weirdo. Our shitake logs are loaded with mushrooms....we were able to sell some to Panciuto this week and also have enough for the first thirty minutes of market. and enough for breakfast omelets in the morning. Last but not least of the great things---a composting toilet is being built on the farm!!! Our friend Gerard has willingly been contracted out to build us this mighty throne. We'll have more facts about toilets soon; we know you're excited about these facts, so we'll revisit it soon, think patience.
