I've started a photos-only blog over at tumblr, in hopes of posting more often than I do here. As in, it's easier to take a quick picture in the field or whatnot, with the iphone, than to sit of an evening and write something. And it gives such a nice look into what we're doing out there. Plus our animals are pretty cute.
But - here's what's been happening, outside the lens:
Planting up a storm, when fields are dry enough to get in: first 2 lettuce plantings are in, first 2 beets and broccoli, first scallions, all our onions and most of our leeks, and spring cabbage, bok choi, pea shoots, and salad greens. Radishes, sweet turnips, arugula, and carrots are seeded. The greenhouse is filled to a point of panic (too cold to move things outside! not enough room inside for the next plantings!). Seedling sale is coming up in a few weekends. First batch of meat chickens will move outside this Friday, if we can get their little hoop houses repaired tomorrow. Electric fences are up but still need solar-powered charges connected, so as to deliver a serious shock to the deer. Hoping to prevent them from snacking at their salad bar farm, more this year than last year...
