What we’ve been up to
It’s been a while since we’ve posted. Last weekend we trimmed the blueberries. Our hired help started working so that has helped us along with chores such as splitting wood for next year’s maple syrup season. More trees have been cut down along the stone wall – this wood will be for next year’s firewood for the house. The stakes for the barn have been laid out. Can’t wait! The front yard has been picked up. Asparagus bed has been rototilled and compost spread. Crabapple trees planted today. Fed the green houses with lots of goodness: fish, calcium and potassium. The garden area still a bit too wet for the tractor so we rototilled with the hand tiller. Today we readied 5 beds and planted peas, turnips, radishes, spinach, carrots and beets. Feeling like we are on tract this year, not behind.
And the winners are…
OK, CSA winners are: quart of syrup- Susannah C.; $25 credit towards future purchases – Heather T.; and Sheryl N. is the winner of a jar of jam of her choice that we make. Congratulations to all and we are looking forward to this year’s CSA.
