Puppies, puppies, puppies
Most of our time at home this month was spent caring for the 7 cuties! They are all doing great, very healthy, and will be joining their forever homes in 1 week (at 8 weeks old).
Chicken egg update
Our chickens are almost back up to full production and we are almost back to delivering to all of our previous customers. We anticipate the youngest hens to start laying around the end of October -- at that time we will starting delivery to those on the waiting list and more! So, please tell your friends and have them sign up online if they'd like to start receiving eggs.
This is our first year planting garlic. We put in 3 varieties (one soft-neck and 2 hard-neck) to try (covered in straw). Now we have to wait a year to harvest them!
We trellised 1 out of 11 rows of raspberries this month and Paul has been busy working on making more trellises. He is cutting and welding t-posts to make 110 trellises. We hope to have the trellising finished in October and are still busy picking the delicious berries every other day!
Our farm stand is still full of delicious produce -- mostly tomatoes, potatoes, raspberries, leeks, beets, greens, kohlrabi, zucchini, cucumbers, and we just starting picking our tasty salad green mix with herbs this past week! Also new is basil plants for you to grow your own in a pot -- the variety is "lettuce leaf" which tastes like regular basil but the leaves are much bigger. Soon we will have carrots out at the stand as well. The newest plantings of greens, beets, and storage carrots are growing well in the fertile soil that the chicken cared for.
