  • Finding the Farmer in You

    Sixty Seconds with Judi Imagine this: The sun is rising on a hot, beautiful morning. You head out the door where you faintly hear the roosters making their morning calls. The air smells of hay, freshly mowed grass, and yes, a little manure. You grab your hat, your sunscreen, and a bottle of water and
  • Linvilla’s Own Bee Story

    Sixty Seconds with Judi I overheard a conversation the other day; a man was asking where to buy Raw Honey and someone suggested Linvilla Orchards. Strangely enough another man chimes in and says “Linvilla Orchards?” “They don’t keep their own bees and they certainly don’t make their own honey!” “Nothing could be further from the

    Sixty Seconds with Judi I try to remind myself today, as I watch the snow fall outside the window, that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. Today, that lion is roaring! But, I am hopeful. I see the daffodils popping up through the frozen tundra. I am watching as the

    Sixty Seconds with Judi This week just before the snow landed in my yard, I happened across a dandelion in my garden. I know most people would not be happy to see a dandelion anywhere in their yard, but for me it was a promise of Spring. I understand this is a fake spring, a
  • Small Space Gardens

    Sixty Seconds with Judi When I think about the quintessential gardener, I visualize a sprawling acre or so of a perfectly placed mix of perennials and annuals that you would see in a magazine.

    Sixty Seconds with Judi This weekend I went down the shore with my husband. We sat outside by a beautiful campfire enjoying the evening. It was a comfortable temperature not too hot, perfect little breeze, just a lovely evening; until I became a banquet for every bug in existence. Can someone please explain to me
