and another year begins...with a foot of snow on May 24th weekend

This past weekend we were busy building shelving in the barn, designing our new chicken tractors and transplanting seedlings in the greenhouse when the snow hit. Wow. Late Saturday and all day Sunday there was a mix of snow, rain, hail, wind and general nastiness. Great time to be inside with the woodstove and fireplace in hunkered down watching movies.

Out in the field the only thing we had in was garlic and a few rows of early potato's. Good thing too, otherwise it would've been a loss for sure. Everything in the greenhouse and coldframes is fine and ready to go out into the real world over the next week. Taking early greens and onions out of the grrenhouse and coldframes will make way for squash, cucumber and tomato plants (which have bigger space requirements).

Off on another adventure of market gardening on the NE Coast of NL!!
