Well Murphy's Law prevailed...I did the largest harvest this winter and sold a fair amount in Phelan so I came home and harvested more...did not check my email and sure enough Wrightwood is cancelled. I will be here in the morning with farm open 8-12 Friday for pick ups of preorders or just for your shopping pleasure...but call to check road conditions. Cell: (760) 412-9746 or Farm: (760) 868-4858. The farm will be open Saturday as usual from 8-12 and this time with lots of vegies for sale!! Weather is supposed to clear Saturday so come and see us, buy some vegies, pick up some eggs and see what we are doing here at Moonstruck!!

After a long awaited wait the new greenhouse is producing bountifully and I am still not done rebuilding rows and planting!! Tomorrow we will be bringing French Breakfast Radishes, gorgeous long scallions, Moonstruck Salad Mix, Leaf Lettuce mix (for those who just want lettuce in for their salad or for their sandwiches), Mustard Mix, Braising Greens (combination of collards, Beeden Kale, Winterbor Kale, various mustards, beet greens), Mizuna Mustard (green and purple), cilantro, parsley, chives, dill, bok choy, sprouting broccoli and spicy mustard greens!!
As I was weeding the spinach I noticed I had left a little too much space between the lines of scallions and groupings of spinach....perfect...I had a tray of Savoy cabbage that needed to go in. Today was a challenge planting because I had a new intern on board...a very young intern...Molly joined us yesterday. She is half Border Collie and Catahoula, both superior working dogs. She has joined us to be by my side during the day herding goats and sheep eventually, learning to be by my side without walking through the lettuce and providing a variety of other joys hopefully...though right now she is adding a few challenges, but in truth she is fantastic already. She has it in her genes to be a great dog, and she was groomed for me by a very dear friend since she was just a few weeks old. Look for her at market tomorrow...she will be the little 9 week old Merle colored puppy right at my feet :) as she has been for the last 36 hours.

Started the day picking up the last of the whole chickens...wow.. Whole chickens will probably sell out this month! Spent an hour or so creating a new seed storing system including seeding supplies so all in one place...put aside tomatoes, squash, savory, chervil, broccoli raab, Michli chinese cabbage, Savoy cabbage and Fordhook Swiss to be started in trays...and another batch of a variety of lettuces to be planted outside along with more beets and radishes. Completed the outside planting along with a tray of lettuce that was ready to go out..completed some foliar feeding and watering the new germinating rows. i called a local supplier about new supplies for irrigation in the new greenhouse that will eliminate the need to hand water newly planted rows. Wow...what a day...and many more to come...so sweet to see things coming together!
