Current goings on

Really busy right now. Many fields to weed, compost, till and seed!
Here's a picture of the greenhouse chock full of plants. Can't wait to get them out in the fields. Still in there are five varieties of tomato, three var. of peppers, lots of herbs, squash, cucumber etc. Some plants already in the fields, but only small numbers here and there until all chance of frost has passed.

There's a tray of basil and tomato, some thyme plants and bigger tomato and pepper in the background of this shot.

at play in the fields...

The old double-lunge with our Newfoundland Ponies. Coda looking to get in on the fun.

Gettin' 'er done!

Planting it up out here in the shire these days. Lots of greens are up and most of the peas, onion, kale, broccoli, celery, beet, leek, chard and a few other things are out in the fields or waiting to go in this weekend.

Been awhile since the last update. Dealing with permits from the town, business plan submissions to various agencies and building fences and coldframes. Farming in the modern age is a fine balance of hard work, savvy and creativity on all levels.

I won't be at the market in St. John's tomorrow. Just not enough heat units, and too much cold wet weather to get things to harvestable size out in the fields.

Photos are on the way from the past month around here. Stay tuned.
