Farm Fresh News

Our garden is well under way! This weekend, in spite of sickness, we planted:

  • Turnips
  • Peas
  • Kohlrabi
  • Chard
  • Beets
  • Radish
  • Parsley
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Lettuce Sampler
  • Carrots


Our chicks will be coming on May 30. We are getting a straight run (unsexed chicks) of 30 total birds. 50-60% will be male. We will butcher all but 2-3 of the roosters (depending) and keep the remaining 12-15 hens for laying. If everything works out, that is. I feel like such a greenhorn! I mean, really. really. green.
