I may have a net connection later today, but for now, this image composite of Joel Salatin from Polyface Farm is all I’ll have time to post–that, and a link to other images at SmugMug, not yet labeled.

The Foodshed Field Trip was an education.

The SEJ conference has been a very good experience–if exhausting. I have bags and folders and files overflowing, to be sorted at some point in November. I’ll share with you at some point.

Have a good weekend, y’all.
