We’ve been…

…growing heirloom tomatoes

…learning about roots

…making ghee (clarified butter)

vrindavan farm, local cows, clarified butter, ghee

…grazing and milking our growing family of cows

…making our own packaging from supari (betel) tree leaves

…fermenting edibles from the zen garden!

…expanding our heirloom tomato collection

 

…sourcing produce from other farmers to encourage their good practices and get them better value for their work

 

What’s on the horizon? … Bees! We hope to home the hardworking-pollinating-honey-making-compound-eyed ones soon.

111 days later… tomato. the fruit

‘Long story short… 
In October, we received life changing seed of this glorious fruit. By the end of the month, the seeds had made it into soil, well, into soil in tiny ol’ milk bags from the city yonder. First sprouts were in 3 days. A month later, they were moved to the land. Early December we saw the flowers followed closely by fruit. Jan 30th was our first harvest!
