Work has begun on our second compost toilet with access from the house.
The beginning of September saw one of the biggest fires we have had since 2005. We evacuated the valley and sat at the top of the hill through the entire night watching and waiting to see if the farm would be saved. Thankfully it was. We had four more fires very close by but eventually with some good firebreaks they were extinguished and the threat halted. It's been a scary time with us being very well aware that if the fires come this way we stand to lose all our work of the last 14 years. We haven't yet discovered (and don't want to) whether this edible landscape would withstand the force of an intense fire
