Right before Christmas the seed catalogs started showing up.  We receive catalogs from a number of different companies, most are companies that I wont buy from again, but I always get a little excited when I see the Seed Savers Exchange and Johnny's Selected catalogs.

I have been doing a lot of reading/research about heirloom seeds, and while this is a fairly new concept, I believe that if not this year, next year that is what we will be using almost exclusively here at Hostone Farm.

In addition to garden seed I am finding ways to create as much feed value from our pastures as possible.   I think I have come up with mixes for both our goats and our hogs, as well as, a 'middle ground' mix to make hay.
