Life on Itzy Bitzy FarmHello Friends,

I have not written in a very long time and I am sorry to have been away for so long.

I believe I have a good reason to share with you all though. 

Itzy Bitzy Farm has moved ... and gotten BIGGER!

In October, my husband Don and I suddenly felt like things were going to change in our lives. Have you ever just sort of had a "knowing" that something was coming or a change was about to happen in your life? We talked one day and sort of half heartedly said we wouldn't mind moving back to North Carolina, where we had lived and farmed for eight years. We had left North Carolina to return to my state of origin in Massachusetts in 2010. We left a big farm of 5 acres, well, big for us suburbanites, and went to a house on 1/4 acre in Southeast Massachusetts. Because of this, I was forced to learn and become expert in raised bed farming. I went from 2 acres of row crops and orchards to 300 square feet consisting of 21 raised beds. It was a harsh change that took adjustment. But it birthed many new skills and opened doors along the way.
