Week 14: Watermelon & Fennel

Week 14: Watermelon & Fennel

I’ve been checking out two potential sites for Movement Ground Farm.  One is up and over the border in New Hampshire, while the other is right over the border in Connecticut.   One puts me a little too far away from Providence, and the other too far away from Boston.   But both are beautiful, and I’m beginning to piece together a multi-dimensional pro and con analysis of these two properties, while continuing to look for more that may pop up.
