Thank you for commiserating with me during our little farm disaster of 2011.
Your sweet comments and emails were so encouraging to me. There were some
questions that were asked and I will just answer them here...maybe you have the same question too.
Do we have a watering system?
Yes, we do have a watering system but it is not automated. All six beds are on the same
system so you just have to turn on one valve.
I will do another post about my love/ hate relationship with watering systems...
Do you go out of town much?
No...it is hard to go out of town when you have a farm...just too much to take care of.
I have dreamed of having a "gentleman's farmer" but I need hired
hands to have a gentleman's farm and at this point we are still the hired hands.
We started "Operation Redeeming the Garden" this weekend and we made good
Cleaned out the pumpkin bed, turned and amended the soil.
Pruned out dead wood and replaced edging
(the edging keeps our free ranging chickens out of the beds)
Prepped and ready to go for round two!
And the Alaska Sugar Snow Peas are taking off!
Here's to greener, growing days!
PS. I am working on a "kitchen update" and will post it this week! We are moving along on that front too!
