Sunny warm day in November means Greenhouse prep..

We have learned to always think a head when farming. We are already thinking 'spring 2009' in November. This is the time when the majority of field crops are lost to frost and we gain extra time for other projects. These pictures taken a few weeks ago, the begining of November during that nice warm spell. We are ammending the soil in our greenhouses by way of composted manure compliments of our neighbour and our own animals! Nevermind, the neighbour is also awesome enough to rent us the use of his loader which makes the task go pretty fast! We are also using our own field soil as well to create a nutrient-rich base for growing next spring! We are using two greenhouses to grow early greens and heads of lettuce. We hope to be able to offer these crops very early in the season. The middle greenhouse will keep it's tables and house our field seedlings, some wholesale plantings and a few plant surprises I hope to offer the market next spring! Stay tuned! If the cold is getting you down, purchase a seed catalogue and plan your garden! Always works for me. OR travel back in our blog and remember the warmer times! Sosnicki's will keep you all warm at market with LOTS of hot, delicious warm food too!
