Happy Earth Day!!

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 ;)

April is disappearing fast!


What a whirlwind month so far!  Now that we've finally got some heat out there, crops are up and at 'em.  Transplanting, seeding fall crops, amending greenhouses, the actual idea of working some ground is upon us.  Busy, busy, busy!  The greenhouse is on fire today and I am enjoying sweating while I bake out there watering the sun-hungry plants!  Big tomatoes ready to go into the soil within days now...onion seedlings still a bit slow, but kale is ready! Lettuces, chards all sizing up nicely.  Not jumping the gun because I feel the cold lurking around the corner again.  If these guys are in the field within two weeks time, they will certainly be wearing a cover cloth!

And the kids are enjoying this warmth outside more exploring their world! Sadie likes to mimic everything I do these days, and watering the plants is one thing she freaks to do!  She is an awesome, awesome child.  Happy, healthy and does the funniest little things constantly. An absolute joy. It is such a pleasure to be able to raise my kids, at home, while working at a job I adore.  Never missing a moment of them growing up. Not one. And sharing the concept of growing food with them.  One of thee most important life skills anyone could ever hope to have! And cooking. Sadie will be an awesome chef when I'm done with her. Period.

So folks, here's to the sun. She's been a long winter and not sad to see her gone.
Looking forward to those long, lazy, hot and hazy summer dayz... loaded with good food, friends and family! ~ Jessie ;P
