    Do you still run a farmers market stand? I’ve only heard you mention it once or twice. I’d love to know more about what you do and how it works!

    Hey, that’s my week, too! The violets, cherry pie and seedlings, anyway. Not the cows or machinery. Your crust lattice is beautiful; am a little envious. I never make lattices, because my whole-wheat crust is too brittle, which leads to a lot of patching and swearing. So I cut hearts out of the top crust instead. Then, after forgetting to put the cutouts on the pie to look pretty, I bake them by themselves and eat them.
    The cherries were from the freezer, and I learned that you can drain too much of the juice from pie cherries, after all. Bummer. Although, the juice is delicious in hot chocolate …

    New question for you. Have you ever used potting blockers (eliot coleman style)? They seem to be all the rage now and I wonder are they really that much better than 6 packs in plastic . . .

      I haven’t since I’ve been set up with these pots and flats for so long, and they’re like canning jars, pretty soon people are giving them to you…

      But I do know of a farmer nearby using them for the last 4 or 5 years and he swears by them. He could probably extoll the virtues if you left him a comment on his blog.

    Those are gorgeous photos–and lovely weather, too! We are actually getting snow down in NW GA! It didn’t get up to freezing today, and it snowed all afternoon with a whiteout, so I’m really enjoying your sunny photos. My DH walked by just as I scrolled to the pie photo, and he said, “Oh my!” with an envious sigh! I must admit I felt the same way! 🙂

    Hello, This is my first post to you, but I’ve been reading you faithfully for about 3 yrs now. A little over 2 yrs ago I acquired a small piece of land and I’ve built a greenhouse based on yours and do pasture rotation because of what I’ve learned here. I’d like to say thank you for all the info you’ve shared.
    I now need additional advice as I was given 14 chickens. They’re in the greenhouse at present (20×40′) but I’ll need it soon for veggies. Many questions but I don’t want to hijack this reply section.
    Thanks again!
