The last thirty days have been all systems go on the farm! The fields finally dried out and planting was started in ernest--we are also thrilled to welcome back returning farm staff, Rahel, an amazing horticultural find, and the best weeder on the island--and she always has a smile on her face, Kim, who we were lucky enough to find last year and love her transplanting prowess and all around great attitude, and Sarah and Charlie our salad girls extraordinaire!!! We also need to welcome new addition Monica who had her first day today, and she brings with her a wealth of plant knowledge which we are excited to put to good use!
Our geese have been moved to "jail" as their new pen is affectionately called. A few too many run ins for the gander with vehicles, people and on one particularly unfortunate occasion, a brief stint actually riding on the back of black lab Karma down the driveway as he pecked at her head! Very bad goose behaviour indeed! They seem to be happy in their pen though, it comes complete with a lovely a-frame house and paddling pool!
As everything blossoms and the growing season gets underway feel free to give us a call or stop by the farm to see all the lovely things we're growing!
