We're doing rain dance every day, hoping for the sky to cloud over and then for a lovely soaking rain to appear! Like many other locations, this has been an unusually hot and dry summer. I am inspired to find ways to help the soil hold more moisture, and will certainly be evaluating what can be grown with minimal inputs!
I am grateful for the Edible Goose Creek CSA folks who motivate me to get up early enough to work before it's too hot, who are appreciative and put their money where their mouth is! We're finding better ways to grow and distribute high quality food, ways that also nourish the land and make space for non-humans too.
Sister Nettle Farmstay is available for a serene summer getaway close to Blue Ridge Parkway and the amenities of Roanoke and Bedford. Please email if you are interested. The COVID adaptations we made have worked really well: guests have all of the cottage to themselves (except our basement workspace and bedroom wing). Visitors prepare their own meals; I can stock the fridge with neighboring farmers' eggs, yogurt, sourdough bread, or meats if desired.
Our other offerings, such as nursery stock sales, cooking classes, farm tours, etc. are on hiatus. but we are open to engaging with you in a targeted way. Feel free to reach out if you want to book something. Nancy is happy to communicate and share via email and video calls.
