Spring is a mad dash at 47 Daisies to get everything accomplished when it needs to be accomplished. We are in the thick of that mad dash right now. Just to keep you posted as to what is happening on the farm.......here is what we accomplished this past weekend.....
All cover crops got tilled under
75 pounds of seed potatoes were planted
lettuce, pac choi, collards, cabbage, chinese cabbage transplants were set out
broke ground at the farm we are leasing 2 acres from and planted 50 pounds of "all blue" seed potatoes there
had twin baby goats seeding is under way (carrots, spinach, sugar snap peas, lettuce mix, turnips, radishes and daikon radishes were seeded into the beds).......
This week we are starting the rest of the warm weather transplants, which will be transplanted to the beds in late March. All in all we are looking at another 3600 seedlings to get started......we are a little late but no worries, we still have a little time.
On a different note, we are officially out of drought status!!!! This is great news and it looks to be a productive year!!
See you soon at the farm!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
