We love these retro wooden birdhouses from local artist One Man One Garage. Comes in a kit ready to assemble. Perfect for kids 8 and up. Hang it outside for the birds or set it inside on a shelf and enjoy. Available online at and at farmers markets around town.

Falling temperatures. Falling leaves. Bypass the lawn service that vacuums them up, and add them to your compost pile, along with any fallen twigs. Dried leaves are a good source of carbon (which your compost pile needs lots of) and crucial to helping your pile breathe.

Farmers' Instagrams We Love

The Davies' kitchen in Green Hills

KITCHENS we love


“We inherited a 1970’s kitchen in our 1923 home. We wanted to restore it to its original design. We realized we had a masonry chimney with a thimble (plastered shut) so we looked for a stove. We purchased a 1920’s gas/ wood/coal stove that was shipped from Massachusetts and came completely disassembled with no instructions! It’s our main stove and the focal point of our kitchen. We love it and use it every day. We also used the original cabinetry (we found in the attic), restored the pantry that had been removed, removed layers of flooring, and refinished the original oak floors. We even removed the refrigerator and placed it on the back porch! It’s our favorite room, and we love the quaintness. Every time we have a party, everyone ends up in the kitchen!”
Reynolds and Dena Davies, Green Hills


Contrary to popular belief, bourbon doesn’t have to be made in Kentucky —just the United States. And according to Rob Samuels, COO of Maker’s Mark in Kentucky, here are 4 other designations that make bourbon, bourbon:

It must be aged in a charred oak barrel.

The “mash” must be at least 51% corn.

Nothing can be added but water, no colorings, no flavorings.

It must be at least 80 proof when bottled.
