I love the farmhouse sink, and I love looking out the window at the animals and cows while I work."

Sweet corn is difficult because you need to understand how corn is pollinated—by wind. This means that growing long rows of corn won’t give great yields. Planting in a patch or rectangle brings the best results. Some of the super sweet corn types can also cross-pollinate, so if you’re growing more than one type, do your homework. Two sweets often yield a field corn—starchy and tasty to cows, not people.

Accessories throughout the space are artifacts and imported pieces from Africa and Asia.
