There is a very special time of year when you are a farm to table eater. There’s the middle of July when you are overcome with fresh vegetables and fruits from the garden.

She also worked 2 jobs outside of the home, wrote a blog, and was co-founder of 3 Birch Farm. But even with her 4 jobs she managed to get a hot dinner on the table every night.
