Sage Hill Farms and Vintage Store

January 2012 - Sage Hill Herb Farm is Ready~

2011 was a challenge in many different areas, we survived them all and are looking forward to whatever 2012 brings our way.

This is really what life is all about, nothing is carved in stone…except the promise from our maker to guide and keep us strong…if we listen and apply.

Not just Tennessee, but all over the world, the weather has been a negative…we have been blessed with a lot of rain, actually much more than was needed. Still a blessing, the ground is wet enough for the long winter needs and frozen enough to kill off all those nasty unwanted molds, and insects.

I’m trying hard to not think about spring planting just yet! It was honestly the first thought I had upon opening my eyes this sad is that? I need to chill and take a mind and body break for at least a month.

We have some new crops to learn about this year, new beds to build, expand some others, and first order is getting the greenhouse in shape for February planting.

As you all know, Sage Hill is a sustainable project - the body of this process is to ‘do no harm’ in the process of fulfilling the needed task. This is really a very simple action that anyone can live by…just take one act at a time and check it for negatives before utilizing-one change a day, and pretty soon you have a healthier, and safer process working…both for self and the earth that you and I are allowed to call home.

There are somewhere in the mix of 7 billion people treading the earth at any given time, spreading toxicity with each step.

The embracing of sustainable, is our only future hope, to think otherwise is signing the death certificate of the human race.

One example….there are close to a trillion plastic bags ending up in land fields every year. These bags take 500 to 1,000 years to biodegrade… Recycle, use returnable. Every little change we make helps.
