Although there's still a long way to go until our dog, Pepper, can steal an ear of corn from the daily picking, the process to grow that corn begins now. We're planning next year's crops by reviewing the seed catalogs and getting the orders done. We just did the sweet corn and peas but still have a lot... read more »
