...for my day was capped on either end by beauty and peace in the our valley.

...for early morning: I harvested microgreens, squash blossoms, and baby wasabi mustard greens in the fragrant candy-scented spring air.

...for the end of a long day, the exquisite birds songs, the chickens singing, and a doe who frolicked with her fawn in the light rain at the tree line as the sun set.

Toward the mountain

...for the life that is springing up all over the high tunnel and valley as the daylight hours increase.

...for Agribon so I can tuck the plants in at night to keep the early morning frost away.


Goodnight sweet valley.
