We successfully made it through a not-too-tough winter, and have wound our way back around to spring and fresh things to eat out of the garden. The reason you have seen zero online activity since about the middle of July of 2015 is that we have had our noses to the grindstone trying to recover from last spring’s tornado. Well, here’s a progress report:
Our little propagation house has just been rebuilt with some modest upgrades. We should have some tomato and pepper, as well as some bedding plant starts ready to sell in the spring of 2017. Around this neighborhood we look to April 10-15 as a springtime frost free date, so check by around the middle of April to see what we have available. If you are looking for broccoli & collard starts, check around the middle of March. We will keep you posted.
The pipe welded frame of our barn came through last years tornado without a scratch. We can’t say that much for the roof and rafters. We have spent the majority of our time this past winter and every spare moment this summer removing the shredded rafters and sheet iron to make way for a new roof. We are about a quarter of the way through getting a new roof back on. This will be a project stretching into the fall, as time permits.
We have had had produce this summer, and continue to have okra. We always have okra. All of the rest of the garden is just hit and miss. We haven’t posted anything because of the unsure nature of our supply. We have been limiting our sales this year to return customers (thank those of you for bearing with us) and local neighbors. As always it is best if you call ahead before you come out.
That’s it. Hope to see you this season. Stay tuned.
