Spring.May 6, 2012
It is warming up here, we have many baby animals at the farm and more to come in the next couple weeks, Gregina is definitely pregnant and looking it more and more very day. We will be selling piglets once they are weaned, we will let you know once they are born.
We are working on a new portable chicken coop so we can move our ladies and gent out into the back pasture, it will hopefully be much lighter then the goat house I built.
Once the chickens are out back we will be able to transplant all our greens outside, they are really ready to be in the ground and not in little blocks anymore.
Our CSA has started which is exciting and it is fun to be transitioning from the winter market into the summer season. Last Saturday was the last winter market and we are not going to be at the summer market. We are feeling a bit behind on infrastructure at the farm so we are going to focus on that so we can be more prepared for the winter market. This summer we will be putting up another high-tunnel near the one we have now to grow greens in all winter as well as setting up a compost system to heat them with. We will miss our market community but we will be back in the fall with a full harvest of rice in tow.
