An update on life at QIVC:
Our family is thinking about lots of projects this coming season. We would like to repair our chicken coop and buy a new flock of meat birds or layer hens (or both!); we'd like to plant beans, tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, mustard, and okra, and continue learning about what wild foods grow here; there are things to be fixed around the house; and we want to explore the larger community and the region more.

It's a challenge to juggle this kind of life with full-time work and raising a family. But somehow the coming of spring never fails to fill me with optimism, making me think everything that's meant to get done will get done, in the end.
