2018 Fall Photo Journal

2018 has been an incredible growing season here in the Portland area! We have been hard at work, as always, supporting people in growing their own organic food at their homes. And now that the rain has finally arrived, we are taking some time to have a look back at all that we have done over the last 10 months! So let’s let the pictures do the talking.

We hope you enjoy this little snapshot into our work (and play!).

Our Friends:

I took this photo four years ago planting with these two cuties

…And got the opportunity to plant with them again this Spring!

Would you like a sugar snap pea?
