  • For those of you that have never heard of a woman named Corrie Ten Boom and her remarkable family, it is truly a heart-breaking account of courage and sacrifice.

    We begin our story with Cornelia (nicknamed Corrie) who was born in Haarlem, Netherlands, in 1892. She was raised in a devoted Christian atmosphere and lived in a large house above her father’s business where he was a jeweler and watch maker. This loving family believed in demonstrating their spiritual convictions by offering shelter, food and help to anyone in need.

  • Lately we’ve had a bit of rain and listening to people talk about the weather can be interesting. For example, if someone has to drive in the rain they may hate it.  The next person may be trying to raise a garden, and they need the rain.  A little kid may love splashing in the mud, but her mom hates cleaning up all the mud that gets tracked in.

    Different people experience the same thing different ways, we all get that.  But what about the way we react sometimes?  Think about a rainy weekend.

  • We gave up on the raspberries a couple of years ago, the fruit was so perishable and the plants lacked vigor.  We would cut the ‘Royalty’ raspberries all the way to the ground each year and forgo an early crop to manage disease, but it didn’t seem to pay off.  It was never a total loss, but about half the canes would be dried up and diseased by now.

  • You can prevent hay bale or barn fires if you bale hay at appropriate moistures and monitor the temperature of recently baled hay. Generally, hay will go through a heating phase within one to two weeks after baling. During this time, you should monitor the hay to make sure it doesn’t reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.
