Little Peace Farm News

Posted 3/15/2010 10:48am by Michael Scheidel.
Hey folks.  Welp, we've all endured thigh-high snow and ankle deep rain, wind strong enough to worry about but the growing season is upon us.  As I type this we have several varieties of lettuces and Asian greens growing in flats to transplant out to the hoophouse.  We should have heads, salad mixes, greens and radish etc... ready by mid/late April.  I am seeding some peas this week so hopefully what the bunnies don't get we'll all be eating soon.  Potatoes and shallots have been ordered as have all of our seed for the season and beyond.

With the help of a brother-in-law, we've completed some farmhouse projects including new floors, new plumbing, and running electricity to the greenhouse.  We've also received truckloads of compost to amend our soil, especially for the ground we haven't plowed before.   

Our wandering hens are truly free ranging as they are in between being moved back to their pasture/eggmobile and the barn where they have been since the second snow storm.  They are slowing traffic in front of the house which is an unintended benefit as we live on somewhat of a straight-away and people drive way too fast. 

We are still exploring new opportunities for selling our produce and still have plenty of space in our CSA for new members (keep spreading the word!). 

Anyway, we hope all are well.  Back to the mud for me!  Peace.
