    You might enjoy Mr. Jefferson’s blog at
    Several times each week, he posts briefly on a variety of topics, including agriculture. Recent posts were:
    – “Are rules made to be broken?”
    – “Have you walked 10,000 steps today?,” and
    – “Is there a doctor in the house?”
    July 2’s post was “WWJD?” July 4 featured an interesting tidbit from Jefferson’s personal notes on July 4, 1776.
    His posts this week deal with his final will and testament.

    Thanks for sharing your food and farm.
