There it is! Don't have to take this tractor to the dealer for a new air filter!

The offending John Deere trailer - painted with RED! Shocking! Stay tuned for comments from Dale Sherman on what he thinks of painting a John Deer with any other color - than JD yellow and green - coming up on this site in the near future.

The new barn is going up! Prairie Bottom will be using this barn to wash and process their produce in a protected area, hold classes for their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) members, and otherwise continue their healthy growth as a sustaining Whidbey Island farm. The barn will be attached to a cistern system to collect their produce washing, and rain, water for reuse on the farm.

Wilbur points out pest on small kale plant. Prairie Bottom uses organic processes on their farm to battle pests and plant problems and insure a healthy product for their CSA members and Farmer's Market customers. Notice the "farmer hands".

The bounty of their labor - Wilbur and Julianna have rock'n beets!
