Many Seasons Greeting to All.
As the Holidays are passing us swiftly so is time! I am sitting here gathering information for our new Mini Herb Farm here in the hills! We are looking for a space to share or even possibly just doing it on our front slope by the house! We are weighing our options and drawing out our plans!!! We are getting massive advise from friends, loyal and new customers and expert gardeners! We personally thank all of you for every piece of advise you are sharing with us! I will be sending out thank you gifts to you all at the end of February!
