It can sound romantic and whimsical, can’t it?
But what's really involved in running a seasonal business around growing things? How do you manage the season or even your day around harvesting and delivering plant material?

Well, this episode is from those archives. I interviewed Erin Benzakein who has been on the Living Homegrown Podcast before (Episode #95). But this time, Erin pulls back the curtain and gives a snapshot of what life is like as a small organic farmer in the state of Washington.
