Sorry for the lack of blogging, folks. It's been a bit crazy around here!

We have been busy preparing the farm for a new septic system, and next week will do some work on my mother's house. She is having some renovations done to make the house more comfortable for my 90 year old grandfather. Meanwhile....Grandpa is actually in a nursing home. He had a mild stroke a few weeks ago, and is needing more care than we can currently provide for him at home. He is, however, recovering pretty well, and we think chances are quite good that he will be able to come home when he regains some strength and balance. Meanwhile we visit him at the nursing home daily, where he keeps tabs on the farm ("And how are the plums coming along? And my tomato plants?") through us.

We had an amazing Sample Sunday last weekend (we're still recovering!) and are already planning our next one - can you believe that on Sunday, September 20th, Prairieland Herbs will celebrate it's 11th birthday?? We have been so incredibly blessed to have had these wonderful years with all of you...and look forward to many more.

So now we are harvesting, distilling, and planning our fall classes and our 11th birthday party events. We have fun things planned for our local folks for next Sample Sunday, but also will be showing our appreciation to our customers nationally and internationally! Stay tuned!!!!

Sounds like you have been busy!

I have to know-did you get the soda stream?

And if so, is it wonderful?

I have seen the Penguin at Williams Sonoma but the $200 price tag is a bit much.

Do tell!
