For a few years, our family has tended to a small slice of heaven in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains. The rolling hills give the land beauty, and our animals and crops help contribute to its life. Garlic is our primary crop and will be a frequent topic of this blog.
I apologize that it's been a couple of weeks that I've been away from the blog. I spent most of that time working on a story about the financial struggle of young farmers in the Roanoke, Va., area. (No twiddling of the thumbs for me!)
