Welcome!

Thank you for stopping by. My name is Lee, I am a wife and a mother with a soul of a farmer and a passion for homegrown and homemade everything. I was born in Israel and raised in a small agricultural community where everything was grown, made and shared. I am in the process of figuring out how to run an organic vegetable and herb farm on our 20 acres in central NC (gardening zone 7b). Honestly, I mostly fail as it is right now, but I am not giving up! I blog about farming and gardening with some herbalisem and other homesteading posts thrown in the mix.

Some favorite posts from the blog…
