Heirlooms is not only the name of my blog, it is the one chosen for our place in the country.
On a small scale we hope to promote genetic diversity of seeds, and implement various measures of ecological restoration. Above all, we will respect the land and the people who nurtured and farmed it before us, the Crain and Brockamp families, my husband's parents and grand-parents.

Heirlooms is dedicated to the memory of Mary Elizabeth (Crain) Brockamp, my mother-in-law.
She loved this land, it's prairie flowers and lilacs, her family and her faith. She was an inspiration to her husband, children, grand-children and great grand-children, and a true Christian.

We plan to plant the first memorial flower garden in lilacs this year.
