UPDATE ON THE FARM

Update on the Farm: 

We are getting geared up for the garden season.  The Farmer is getting the mulch pulled from last fall—there was a disaster in the conventional beans that set us back and we missed the two week window for putting the garden to rest for the spring. 

We are ordering our poultry by-product fertilizer today (certified OMRI for organics–excited about that!) and all the sweet potato shoots, seed potatoes, and onion plants have been ordered.  Enchanted Gardens has already started the majority of the plants to set out starting in May…so the show is getting on the road! 

Remainder of the seed…cucumbers, pumpkins, squashes, and green beans…will be ordered next week, as well as the mulch and drip lines. 

Hoophouse has a new sheathing and is fully operational again–poor guy has trouble keeping his cover on in the WY winds…this year we replaced the zippered ends with plywood…Not as pretty but hopefully more practical–

All of this takes money–Agriculture is front-end loaded with expenses!  Membership will be opening up Wednesday, March 25thEmails will be sent to current members, and specific directions will follow for new members.

We are thankful for a community that supports our food endeavors!–The Farmer’s Wife

  1. Cathy–You had the Mini-Share and the Spring Share. We didn’t do the Spring Share this year but instead are selling produce at Bee Healthy on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. This will run through June 18th. Stop in and pick up some of that Lettuce and Greens that Terry likes so well!

    I do for sure want what we did last year. Worked really well for Terry & I. I believe it was the quarter share. Did we do a spring share? Cathy
