We are almost all sick, so bootcamp isn’t too exciting right now, but there are still a few things slowly happening.

We’re still under the weather, so things are still slow, but I did manage to build fence with Orin and Josiah for like 20 minutes this morning before I died.

Also made some thyme-infused honey for cough/cold that probably won’t be ready until we’re all well, since it takes two weeks to infuse, just like the garlic vinegar. Oh, well.

Jewel corn that Josiah has and gave to me. So gorgeous! We are growing Painted Mountain this year, but these are so beautiful they’re hard to resist

Poor babies... stay warm... Vit c, zinc, magnesium..... until the infusions are ripe!  And now I'll have to get the 'Glass Bead Corn' seed after seeing those beautiful kernels!  ox

Josiah got the drone running and took some aerial shots of the Abbey plot.


We are discussing design ideas on Josiah’s thread.
