Hard at work, Time flying by

It has been a couple weeks since our last post, as Jason pointed out. We've been busy! Lots of weeding, best market yet, building compost, Brad cleaning out the basement, Mike re-organising our crop rotation, planting green manures and crops, planting winter veggies, and much, much, more!

Food is growing, so that's good. Last market we had beets, carrots, lettuce, radishes, kale, peas, and onions. What a party! Deer came for a visit a couple of weeks ago, and chewed a few beet tops, so we're making sure we have someone out there checking on the field past dusk, and someone else before dawn. So far that has been effective and there has been no crop damage, and a few deer sightings. We've also had friends of ours and of Lori and Tony come visit the farm for the tour, so that's been a lot of fun. One time, one of their children said, "Mom, can we save all our extra containers and grow food in them." And also, "Mom, can I turn my bedroom into a garden." So we are already starting to brainwash, which is definitely a highlight.

There is a few new pictures in the photos section of our website. Also Mike claims he will make a post about upcoming projects and possibly some photos as well. Perhaps a picture of our very first hot pepper in our greenhouse!! It looks like a hot pepper! In our greenhouse!
