Trish's blog: Farm Update- Jan 18th, 2016

Posted on Jan 18, 2016 10:52 AM

With a goal of sharing our fun farm adventures once a week with thousands of my closest friends, I hereby declare that I intend to blog once per week in 2016. Since I'm already several weeks behind, have high hopes, but low expectations!

Our favorite milk cow, Elsie gave birth to a beautiful heifer 2 weeks ago, and we are flowing with milk (and honey too, actually, but not from the cow!).

Dave and several helpers have been working on rebuilding our greenhouse as time allows. We hope to have it done very soon.

Tomato, peppers, and eggplants have been started, but no germination yet. These are for our own use as well as for our plant sales this spring.

The weather has been so nice in the last week! Since we anticipate a very busy spring season, we've all agreed to try to get as much done in the winter as we possibly can, so weeding and applying a heavy layer of wood mulch is being done slowly now instead of in the spring. This garden is ready to go. This spot is one of our tropical beds. It will be full of bananas, elephant ears, caladiums and various other tropical- type plants in late spring (they are slower to show up). Meanwhile, it is a perfect place to plant garlic! The garlic will be harvested when other plants will start to compete for space.
