The Latest 12 Months at Campfire Stories

Hello everybody!

Summer is here and I've been more busy with building a greenhouse and caring for our animals and seedlings than I have been with filming, interviewing and editing. I'll be back to the filming business with full force soon enough, but for right now it's all about the tomatoes, chilies, beets, cucumbers, carrots and pumpkins.

At this point of the year it's nice to reflect back over what's transpired at Campfire Stories over the past 12 months. And it's quite amazing to see it all lined up like this (see below).

I hope there's a few golden nuggets in there for you to re-discover. Sending you lots of love along the way.
