Sounds amazing....maybe in the future ( if they have it in later years when we could make it). Will definitely pass the info along to someone else I know here who’s retiring soon and is planning on getting into land stewarding.
Mentioned it to husband and his response was “a bunch of veterans ‘bonding’? Won’t the salt ruin the soil?”
“O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang! Nun, armes Herze, sei nicht bang!
Nun muss sich Alles, Alles wenden.”
