This past month I built a large high tunnel for winter growing at PA Bowen Farmstead in southern Maryland.  While it was a bit of a haul to get down there and build on my weekends, it was a great project to get more experience under my belt.  I was able to buy a set of quality professional tools, hire my good friend Matt to help out and finish more or less on schedule and on budget!  The farm is a wonderful dairy and meat farm owned by Sally Fallon Morel, author of Nourishing Traditions Cookbook, and director of the Weston Price Foundation.  But truly it was great to have an excuse to hang out on the farm and get to know Mike and Barb, the farm managers, some incredible hard working, creative thinking, sustainable farmers. The farm is a place just bursting at the seams with life.  Whats best of all, I may have two more greenhouse projects this fall, both much closer to Baltimore!
