On a Farm & Learning

July 27, 2018

How quickly making posts got away from me. From February to July lots of things have grown and flowered. Indian Blanket looks awesome. Sunflowers are finally in full force and the bee's are loving it!

 

Roses are getting bigger. Lilacs, Hydrangeas, and Nine bark are getting established. Lavender, double holly hocks, bee balm and even carnations. Taking time to observe what things like this new soil and what doesn't. Noticing how the terrain effects the growth of various plants.

 

One observation we noticed was the lack of nutrients in the soil. We planted some buckwheat and noticed how short it was except where a bale of hay had been;          it was tall and a luscious green.

 

So, a few days later a truck load of compost; some talks to tree trimmers and scheduled deliveries of wood chips. Making things a bit better each day.

 

Still so much to do. The computer crashed and we limped along via ipads. Now we are finally back on track and putting some backups in place in the office and even some field work plans coming together.

 

We made time to harvest some honey; and then there is always tidying up to do around the farm: tree trimming, mowing, watering, and keeping the kids engaged.

 

Now in July and there are daily harvests from the field. Figuring out what each plant needs when it comes to harvest and post handling and establishing bucket washing habits. I am enjoying the journey!
