We have been dealing with so much snow. It is out of control. Today, Dylan took the tractor and made a road to the greenhouses so we could get the snow off the sides. The snow was almost to the tops..... feet of it... and we were in danger of some caving if it wasn't removed. That took awhile.
We love snow and we are so happy to live in a climate where we get (a lot) of it... but we're at the point in the year where we constantly ask questions like; where is all this going to go when it melts? When it snow again, where are we going to put it? How much more snow can we really get at this point? What if the snow isn't gone when we need it gone so we can get in the soil? And on.... and on....
It's kind of comical, but mostly sad.
The big benefit to the snow is the awesome snow hill for the kids. It's amazing, and they love it. This afternoon, Dylan took the little ones out and made a snow tunnel/fort. They thought it was the best thing ever.
We also managed to get some herb plants started from cuttings and some micro greens going. YAY!! Things are growing... and looking great.
I also took a few minutes today to order some new labels for our microgreen and salad green containers that we'll be transitioning to this season, and a sprayer that we desperately need for watering in the greenhouse... and the all important two 5 gallon camp jugs for carrying warm water from the house because the well water is too cold to water plants with.
I am so excited for market season to start! And spring... and SUMMER! Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself, but with all the market meetings and preparations for spring... it's hard not to get prematurely excited. BRING IT!!
I'm also very sad that my mom is leaving tomorrow. She has been here for a week and things are so much smoother when she's here. So.... until she's able to move here full time, we are accepting applications for a live in nanny (but we can't pay you). Ha. :)
Until next time-
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
