University of Illinois Kane County Extension

I just completed the second "Preparing a New Generation of Illinois Fruit and Vegetable Farmers" class at the Kane County Extension office. Oh how I love these classes. Once a month we meet for 6 hours and learn. Learn about the thing I love most. Farming! We have about 32 students from all over Illinois. Once I'm finished in November, I will be able to understand everything about growing in Illinois.

This is a picture from Mayneland Farm down the road from us. His chicken pen. Mr. Mayne has 14 - 15 acres of some beautiful Naperville Farm land. Hard to find a farm in Naperville and this one is 1/2 mile away.

Winter Driving

While I was driving my 2 miles to work, these poor folks were on east bound 94. Wow. What a Pile up.  My heart goes out to them.

Winner of the Awesome Foundation

My Community Nursing Home Project is the winner of Funds! Awesome Foundation WOW!

I am so excited. I just walked over there this morning to assess the spring planting.  I seeded Rye last fall and it should be the first thing up.  I have a long way to go before digging but I can get some ideas. Right?

I just noticed that I never thank Bobby in any of my adventures.  It's because of him that I have the passion to do theses things. He lets me be me. What could be better? Thanks Bobby.

He'd like this picture of himself. It was a beautiful sunny day in Chicago. Thanks again Bobby.


Cold but beautiful.

Christmas is right around the corner. Happy Holidays.
