Time to Weed!

Actually, with the little rain have had, the weeds have not been too bad. And many hands make light work. Many thanks to Joshua and Christine and their wonderful children for coming all the way up from Bethlehem to help us out, and to neighbors Paul and Kristin for bringing half of their clan, as well. Tomato plants are staked up. We seem to be all caught up. Everything is growing, though slowly (more prayers for rain requested). The crows seem to like the corn, so we will most likely lose a lot of that crop.

Mia returned to the farm to dye more wool - this time magenta pink and a jade green. We’ve also been experimenting with some natural dyes - alkanet (purple), turmeric (yellow), and avocado pits (beige). Black beans also made shades of light purple and green. We are growing a large amount of black beans in the field - lots of purple hats in our future!

Send us your prayer intentions - and please continue to pray for us.
