Look at all those sling bags of potting mix. Eeeeiii! Fun.
Field tunnel still standing strong after 50+ mph winds. Low profile, and cheap and easy to fix is how we're rolling in plasticulture this season. :)
Newly surveyed field. Turns out we have quite a bit more land than we realized. Sweet!
Cover crop-covered beds, and clover-covered walkways. Already nice and green.
One of our best decisions last year was to plant the walkways and headlands in perennial clover. It's already greening up and looking pretty.
Sweet littles of sweet peas.
This was my Grandma Lena's case for toiletries. We use it as our seed transport box.
We've been hard at work. Well, Farmer Mike's been hard at work planting seeds, and I've been hard at work doing other things to support us being hard at work. Does that make sense? :) I've had some wonderful opportunities to do other work that supports farm work and local flowers, and have been gone a lot.
And now, I'm back at the farm, preparing to transition to part-time contract, mostly at-home work for MOSES so I can be on the farm full-time. Our family is over the moon happy about this transition, and I'm so very grateful that MOSES is willing to work with me in this new capacity. It allows me to better care for our family (my first love), our farm (my second love) and still continue to work with and support other farmers, doing work that I enjoy for additional, necessary income. It's such a win-win. After a long, challenging year and some of transition, this feels like such a great step towards our farm dream goals.
We have starter plants coming to a couple of select places near you, and CSA members signed back up for another 15 weeks of flowers, and been talking with our beloved buyers, and, we have so many seeds in the dirt. It's all so exciting. Another season coming our way.
Be well, xo
