Fire, Ready, Aim.
Picked our first harvest and about to get them in the dehydrator.
Place bay leaves on mesh drying trays, stem side facing the center of the dehydrator so the air current dries the thickest part of the leaf first. Dry leaves at 110 degrees for 5 to 7 hours. Leaves are done when they are crisp and break easily when bent. Store your dehydrated bay leaves whole to preserve the best flavor.
Prior proper preparation prevents piss poor planting.

Why “granary,” not “grainery”?

Q: In a report, I mistakenly referred to a building that holds grain as a “grainery” rather than a “granary.” Why isn’t it
The embedded video below was just sent to me by someone I have spent the last three days with. Someone I had never met. After watching 5 seconds of it I knew it was going to be an inspiration for our family on our journey as Farmers. If only I could watch it with my Grandfather Graydon Gregory and my Great Grandfather Lester Gregory. From what I know of our farm on Gregory Line in Chatham, Ontario, that has been in our family since 1853 they would approve and be amused.
