Volunteer tomatoes leads to a sale?

Hey y'all, As I was getting to work in the greenhouse today, I was feeling inspired by a bunch of volunteer tomatoes in my soil. We are talking about 50 volunteer tomatoes. * I may have grabbed soil from an old tomato bed....ooops* Anyways, I wanted to share the bounty with you guys! I can't send everyone tiny baby tomato plants because the shipping alone would probably cripple us. BUT I can give you guys half off my entire store! **I need to add that this sale is only on my convert kit store...

I know some of you may not garden (and to that I ask, why?) but I do believe wholeheartedly in the power of journaling. It's not just positivity journaling.

For me, the garden journal is where all the garden frustrations, triumphs and everything in between goes. While journaling may not work for everyone, it does work for the vast majority of us. This is peak garden season for a lot of us. We...

If you have a business you know how difficult tax time can be. Gathering up receipts, grabbing your calculator and praying you don't miss anything. But 3 years ago I created our Schedule F and Schedule C trackers to help ease the burden of tax time. They have only gotten better over the years! This year, it only took me 2 hours to get a year's worth of farm income and expenses into our schedule F and another hour to get all of the business expenses into our schedule C. That's all it took to...

It's getting cooler! Do you know what that means? Well for me, it means warming up with flannel sheets, a fire in the stove and reading a good book! If you are the same way, i recommend reading Dirt to Soil by Gabe Brown. The way he writes this books makes it incredibly easy to follow. He takes you along with him on his family's journey to restoring the land after many years of failed attempts. In a few short seasons, we have seen a tremendous difference in our kitchen garden beds! Our plants...
