May 6 is the two year anniversary of my bone marrow transplant at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. I commemorate this day by working with friends and family to plant 100 fruit trees, 500 raspberry bushes, 40 blue berry and 300 strawberry plants in a 73,728 square foot orchard taking root in the east pasture at our Washington Island Farm. When my bone marrow transplant happened, I was told not to touch dirt for one year. Now, I kneel it in.
