CSA and Farm

Hello friends!  It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to post. We spent the winter working on off season projects, then in February we started plants.

This year, we started cabbage, broccoli, tomatoes, peppers, and herbs in the greenhouse – all of which have now been planted in the main gardens and are growing happily 🙂

Our chickens seem to be working overtime and we’re getting 5 dozen eggs each day. If you know of anyone who needs any, please call or text me at 270.302.9468.

 

We’ve also planted corn, radishes, beets, spinach, lettuce, kale, chard, peas, green beans and probably a few other things I can’t recall at the moment.

We decided not to offer a CSA this year, focusing more on the farmers market. Delivery times were just too much and was keeping us out of the fields.  It’s just us. No employees, so we have to make the best use of our time.

Anyways, we’re still around. Still having fun and making the most of each day. We’ll be seeing everyone soon at the farmers market!

Thankful

Today, I’m thankful to live in a country where we enjoy such freedoms.  I’m thankful for long days in the sun, planting what remained to be planted:  green beans, yellow squash, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, acorn squash, gourds, watermelon, cantaloupe, etc.  I’m thankful the only things left to plant are pumpkins and the final field of corn. 

I’m thankful for the smells that surrounded us this weekend while we worked in the fields – honeysuckle, wild roses, and blackberry blooms.

Wild roses are everywhere, along with honeysuckle. Great smells!!!

I’m thankful to live in the great Commonwealth of Kentucky, where it’s green like no other place.

This was my view while mowing Saturday. Sure, I was stuck in the mud at the time, but WOW the view was nice!

I’m thankful to see a little tomato on the vine:

He’s hiding, but he’s in there! Little tomatoes are popping up.

I’m thankful that the garden is doing well and I’m pleased to see the potato plants growing strong:

The potato plants are looking very good this year.

Every day, I’m thankful for this life.  And on this Memorial Day, I’m extra thankful for the men and women who have served or are currently serving our country.  Their sacrifices allow us the freedom to live this wonderful life.  I am grateful.
