Time for an update...

This has been a crazy mild fall. We have been so lucky to be able to plant every weekend in November -- and mom and I got 40 peonies in today (December 6). While we've had some hard frosts, the ground is no where near frozen and thank goodness, there is still a lot to do!! I thought I would have a 3-ish month break but it looks like I will be planning for 2016 in January, building a greenhouse in February and starting plants in March...Not clear when my break is scheduled for?

Some pixx of the latest and greatest around here...

 Mom and dad had the South side of the barn restored by Dusty Gloeckner (he has done a ton of great work for us around the farm over the last year).
