Hello dear HPF supporters!
Well, we've made some progress from freezing and windy and rain deluges, to 85 and sunny and boom! The new normal as our climate changes gives us one definite - EXTREMES! Woofdah. It's intense out here. Evermore important to support your local growers. - as you all do! Thanks a million!
Finally, the sun is shining!!!
We delivered a whole bunch of plants. This fuzzy pic is me, my wingman, and our little wingdog. We had our Auntie's shitzu staying with us for a coupld of weeks, and he fit right in.
We have a few blooms coming out of the field that will go to florists because we don't have enough for the retail markets. Retailers - we'll have flowers for you that last week of June if the sun shines, and the 80+ degree weather continues. It's a sloooowww season given the cold and gloomy conditions, but we seem to be picking up this week.
Mostly now, we've been planting and planting and planting, and playing in the mud kitchen, and taking a few breaths in between starter plant season, and field and hoop growing season.
Thanks to the Lakewinds Organic Field Fund, we were able to order a whole semi of black gold - fresh, sweet compost for our fields. We've been repairing the soil, and building fertility since we moved here four years ago, and this is something we've wanted to add for years. WOOT!
We're looking forward to seeing your faces as we start delivering in a few weeks! Happy June!
xxoo J,M+E, your HPF farmers
