What I'm reading on my phone...

The Great Passage by Shion Miura is one of those novels that remind me why I read Japanese fiction, one of those delightful tales where plot serves the characters, unlike most western novels where characters serve the plot. It is a story about the power of words, about the tenacity of love, about the resilience of friendship over time. Juliet Winters Carpenter's marvelous translation makes it all come alive for readers in English. Henry's books .

Bradford...


This year gave us another sweet crop of Bradford Okra, and we'll be harvesting the seed pods within the next week. It looks like there will be plenty of free seed to give away in time for spring planting. Let us know if you'd like to try this wonderful heirloom okra from the South Carolina low country.

This is the third generation of Bradford Okra planted on our site. It has adapted very well to our highland environs, gets better every year. Good yields, very sweet and tender, even when the pods are harvested a bit late. Makes splendid pickles.
