Third time’s a charm. After two previous attempts, finally summited Mt. Adams this morning. And of course, upon reaching the second highest peak of the Pacific Northwest, waiting for me was a spectacular view of the highest. Fuck you, Mt. Rainier.

This lucky jersey calf gets to grow up on pasture and will be milked twice a day. She will primarily eat grass, and only eat grain when milked. I have come to be a huge supporter of organic dairy, especially the organic valley label which is a farmer owned cooperative. #cascademountainschool ...

Getting put to work thanks to this winter storm that has blown threw. In my opinion not that significant of a winter storm to be deemed "snow day" worthy here in the upstate, BUT! This gives me an excuse to get some chainsaw time.

Super saturated soil +
Top heavy trees from ice =
LOTS of blow downs on roads that must be cleared

Feeling over moon about the success of today! Cascade Mountain School's summer camp had their last Farm to Table field trip at our house. We opened the hive, found the Queen bee, saw pollen be brought back at the entrance, ate honeycomb straight from a frame, and some even conquered their fear of bees! I couldn't be more thrilled about this first time adventure. Many more to come with wderith I hope! #honeybythepeople #honeybees #beekeeping #hoodriver #columbiagorge #CascadeMountainSchool #dowhatyoulove #teacheachother #youthbeekeeping ...
