This is about our 20 acres in Oregon. Tom and Jeanie work there the most, but our kids Aly and Patrick visit from time to time. Aly’s friends helped us burn a lot of slash piles, and Patrick and his buddies had the thrill of starting a fire as well.
Right now, we are working on habitat improvements and learning as many of the plants and animals as possible. In the future Jeanie hopes to offer a line of native plant seeds for home gardeners. If you like lichens, bugs or newts, we will eventually offer tours of the place. Got to get the poison oak out of the paths first though.
You can read more about Jeanie at TaylorGardensNW.com. Tom teaches graphic design and advertising in the Seattle Central Community College Creative Academy. Summers are free to run the brushcutter, riding mower, smoke cigars, read, and go birding in the beautiful Willamette Valley.
