First of all I need to apologize for not keeping up with the blog on a daily basis. However, we have been very busy at the Bountiful Blessings Farm. Now that the weather has broken, and the soil has dried out enough to get back in the field, we have been planting nonstop. Today we planted about 400 tomatoes in the field. Yesterday, we were not able to plant, but we were able to lightly rototill between rows on some of our crops. In the morning I worked on some tomatoes I donated to a local plant sale at the House Café in DeKalb, Illinois. A group is hosting a plant sale to benefit the DeKalb County Community Gardens. Here is the information from the event post on Facebook:
DEKALB COUNTY COMMUNITY GARDENS FUNDRAISER. Come by and purchase a native plant or flower, a beverage or a bite while listening to some awesome local music and enjoying the company of others who want to support our garden efforts. What a great way to celebrate Mother's Day! Whether you want to honor our Mother Earth, show your Mom how much you love her, respect the memory of a Mom who has passed or celebrate someone who has touched you with a Mom's love -- this event is a perfect way to celebrate the Moms who have touched our lives. Plant sale starts at 1pm -- music for this event begins at 5pm. Proceeds to benefit DeKalb County Community Gardens.
The House Café is located at 263 E. Lincoln Hwy, DeKalb, IL 60115.
If you are in the area, take a moment and stop in the House and say hello to my friend Matthew. The food is great and the music - - always a pleasure! Hope you have a great weekend and God Bless!
