Its been a busy time here on the farm. Lots of perennial planting of herbs and veggies (asparagus)
Sprucing up the orchard, though we did loose 3 trees, and will replace those that didn’t make it.
The Elderberries are doing great! Now that they are weed free and not being choked out!
We found this wonderful young man Teddy Mattson from Thorndike ME who is certified in permaculture.
He is amazing with plantings and does Hugel Kultur. The below is our first finished Hugel with perennial herbs.
So much happening now and we are finally settling in.!
The ‘girls’ are just to sweet and love hanging out on the window.
He sure is getting big our little puppy.. he weighed in at just 100 lbs this June 2015 .. and he still is growing.
The sweetest pup you ever want to meet.
The Summer Season is in full swing, I hope you are protecting you skin from the effects of the sun.
A salt scrub is a great way to get rid of the dead skin and make your skin glow.

Consider what Dr. Mercola has to say in regard to bath and shower products:
“If I were to tell you that your shower and bath products could be putting you at risk for less-than-optimal skin and eye health, immune and endocrine function, would you pay a little more attention to your products’ ingredients?
Did you know that applying a substance to your skin isn’t much different from eating it? In fact, I believe it may be even worse.
And let’s not forget… a hot steaming shower…
* Opens your skin pores
* Drives a high absorption rate of chemicals directly into your system
* Vaporizes 70 to 90% of the chemicals present so you inhale them into your lungs
When you consider that products such as shower gels and soaps may be used daily, you can imagine the chemical residue that may build up over the years. (Source: http://bathcare.mercola.com/)
Essentially, it’s safe to say that if it’s not something you would eat, it is best not to put it on your skin.
