We sold several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares during the off season. Now that surgeons took half of each foot and I have been unable to work, the bank has taken our farm. Even today I still have a gaping wound in my right foot and a wound vacuum attached to it. As a result, my family is essentially homeless.

We are squatters. On Friday, July 26th, Citizen’s Union Bank sold our farm. We are about to be homeless. It did not matter that the family paid $160,000.00 for it and I had only about $17,000.00 left to pay off. It did not matter that we were only $1,000.00 behind.

My health has not been well and it is showing in some of the worst imaginable ways.Continue reading Horrific News from PBM

Shipping and order processing has fallen about a week behind due to last week’s storm, but it is now back on track. I am sorry for the delay. We just discovered a major draw back of internet based business. When the electricity goes out, nothing works. We also learned that plants can go several days with no light.Continue reading Back on line. Back on track.
I am back from the hospital. No surgery this time but it was close. I am back on antibiotics. This time we are trying to save an ankle. That being much more important than toes because you know: The foot bone connects to the ankle and all. Seriously, everyone has his or her challenges and this one seems to be mine. It is likely inevitable that I will loose a foot, but they are going to try and post pone it as long as possible.
