All of a sudden it feels like spring. The grass is growing so fast you can see it and it has changed from a bright green to a darker one. The fields are still to wet to till but if it does not rain, they would be dry soon enough. I do still hope for more rain of course.
The wood shop is almost complete. The tools are partly moved in; the shelves halfway built. The space is much bigger and cleaner than where they were stored before. Hopefully it will make it easier to keep organized on a daily basis.
The hay is almost gone in the barn. Only a small pile is left. The children were disappointed at first but then they found they could still jump off the pile and pretend to all in between the bales. It is nice to have the barn clear and be ready for more hay.
This is the last week that we will have a wide range of vegetables for sale. We will still be open on Fridays 2 pm to 5 pm and have onions and meat for purchase at that time.
For this week, here is the list for sale:
- Purple Top Turnips
- Winter Squash
The lettuce and cabbage will be freshly harvested. The rest has been previously harvested and stored. We will also have potatoes available for free. When we are growing year round next year, we hope and will plan to be able to offer even more diversity.
We will have the wool out and be needle felting this week.
