Another great day – May 25, 2012

Ok just finished day 2 of a 5 day weekend. Accomplished a lot today too much too list but the highlights were – eating the fresh greens from our garden (in the picture). Yesterday, we went to pick up rock dust from a MA farm – this is part of our remineralizing the land – the color was unbelievable, a pearlescent blue/green/gray – gorgeous and shimmering color – it just glowed in the garden. I’m sure the land is very happy right now.Image
