This week

     Spring is here!  Dogwoods are starting to bloom, the trees are starting to show new leaves, and the Irises and Tulips are opening up.  I'm pretty happy about the longer days as this time of the year is very busy with planting and planning.  I've finished up another chicken tractor and will be moving half of the Barred Rock chickens in there this afternoon; I've also will be constructing a high tunnel (similar to a greenhouse) within the next month.  It's hard juggling everything, but my days working in restaurants have been invaluable with the farm work I do in terms of making lists, priortizing as I go, and keeping it all organized.

I hope everyone has a great week and don't forget about the next foraging class coming up in April!

A Quote

When you love your land
You want to make it known to as many people as possible
And to make it rich.
Gastronomy is a magnificent way to do all that.
