Busy day..cold outside but the greenhouses are warm and green! Our workers arrived today, so the next few days will be spent working hard at getting some crops in the ground!!
Every day is Earth Day around here as we adhere to organic growing practices and respect our planet and the mega awesome mother - the soil!
Our heirloom tomatoes are huge and ready to be planted! Kale is a sea of majestic green - also ready to hit the dirt!
Enjoy your day and respect your planet ;)

Our family is trying hard every day to eat the best we can - even during celebrations! For Sadie's birthday I made an organic fresh fruit cheesecake (It was so nice to enjoy a little bit of organic imported fresh fruit after such a long winter). And when you use organic cream cheese, dairy and eggs in baking - man oh man is it good!! And I kept the cane sugar content low in the cakes. A peach punch with my canned peaches from last summer; my homemade salsa seasoned with spices and my dehydrated basil leaves enjoyed with organic corn nachos. A garlicky hummus with our colourful carrot sticks for dipping; organic cheeses, humblebread... etc etc were feasted on while we celebrated Sadie turning two! My mom jumped on the 'healthy but yummy' bandwagon too and made organic chocolate covered oranges and a killer guacamole!
So birthday parties don't have to be a giant fondant mess of refined sugar, artificial colours and flavours but instead really really yummy and healthy!

Lil' Sadie-Bug is 2!! Can't believe it! And daddy bought her her first set of wheels - a tractor! She is a mega joy and makes us laugh constantly! Man oh man we are looking forward to all the fun we are going to have with these two kidlets!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY LITTLE FARM PRINCESS!!
Speeding right along here! We were able to start seeding mid March and are happy with the progress! We continue to grade out and sell Carrots, Cabbage, Beets, Onions and Potatoes! Busy, busy, busy!
This seasons crops may be a tad late, but so far so good! Repairs on the greenhouses are also keeping us going! Spring is here and we are happily gearing up for a fabulous growing season!
