Not much interesting going on this weekend. We're enjoying a day of no kids and hitting some yard sales to find a few bargains. Last weekend we found 6 grass plants and a moisture meter for 25 cents each. Now we're looking for tools, hoses etc. We're also checking out the Market in Qualicum.
Yesterday saw the raspberries all go in and 60 ft. of potatoes. We're re-potting tomatoes in the greenhouse. They're doing well but not growing as fast as I'd like due to less sun than I would have expected this time of year. It's bumped our first CSA harvest date now to the beginning of June, and while I know that's the same as everyone else on the Island, it's still frustrating! Grrr!
Delivery dates now look as follows:
Approx. June 4th to October 29th. We're still seeing if we can have a smaller delivery in May to at least get you all started and to run through our delivery route.
Well I'm off. Gotta hit the market and sales early so i can get back here and plant more. Peas and beans are going in today. Onions too.
We had a dream, like so many others before us, to live a simple and sustainable life on our own organic farm... so we drove from Vancouver Island, British Columbia to the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, and we've been here nearly 6 years. We love life, learning, and sharing with others. Follow our adventures as we build a vibrant small family farm and work towards self-sufficiency using a combination of traditional methods, permaculture and original ideas.
