Finally, An Update

I’m sorry for not posting for so long, quite a bit going on at BeeWench Farm.  Between the CSA, my day job, family and caring for the animals I’ve hardly had time to breathe 🙂 But now that winter is here, I have a…

The State of Things

Lately I’ve been thinking about “the state of things”; the state of my household (that’s for another post), the state of our state, the state of our nation and the state of our world. Sometimes it’s easy to put blinders on and just go…
