Black Friday and Cyber Monday are passed!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are passed! Whew!

Our cover crop continues to grow nicely. We may add a little organic P and K in a couple of weeks, but other than that, all can we do now, is wait. We hope to plant green beans in early March. We may split the crop and plant green beans, pinto beans, Kentucky Wonder beans and spring carrots and a little sweet corn. These will be followed closely with purple hull peas.

Next winter we are going to experiment with fava beans if we have a suitable market for them. If anyone out there is interested in fava beans, let me know, I’d like to have you on our address list. We do want to extend our growing season into the winter, because summer is really hot and dry and we can raise a few things in our version of fall / winter.

Hopefully next Thanksgiving we can offer fresh sweet potatoes and green beans to complement the Thanksgiving meal. We are attempting to expand production on the farm and our biodiversity. Watch the web site for new pics.
