Life on the farm
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
A Washougal couple has lovingly transformed a property that once housed racehorses into a farm that grows a variety of vegetables and other produce.
Roy and Jo Grace Buck purchased 7.5 acres 14 years ago. With one-half acre currently under cultivation, they hope to eventually increase that to around four acres.
The Bucks started to farm locally last year, by growing radishes, carrots, potatoes and squash.
They also grew seven kinds of lettuce, three types of chard and two types of cabbage.
"It was such a great learning experience," Jo Grace said.
