Decided we would head out this morning and go exploring. I always enjoy driving the back roads and discovering new places.

We found Robert on just such a road. He gave us a tour of his organic farm, complete with greenhouse and old barns.

He took us out into his fields and cut vegetables as he and Mary talked gardens and strategies to get the most from the least amount of soil.

One method we liked was his use of logs (which we have lots of) to make compost containers. Once the soil has been built up he adds squash or cucumber seeds and lets nature take over. As you can see it seems to be very productive.

Lunch, thanks to Robert. Simply delicious.

Enjoy the weekend and thanks for stopping by.
