Sugar Snaps make a great side. We had ours with egg noodles and pan fried salmon. Seasoned with cirtus.

We had a wonderful time this week having folks out to the farm. Please keep watching this site and our FaceBook site for days and times. We are trying to become regular, but veggies and strawberries are not regular yet.

Today we spent most of the day weeding. We do have lots of strawberries ready to go, so we will start letting folks come out and pick this week.

Welcome to our farm blog. We are hoping to update this blog regularly with farm news, pictures and recipes. Today we have a lot of rain. Which means we have a day off. HAHA. We are farmers. There is no such thing. Today we will finish our plan for the spring planting. Work in the greenhouse with our seedlings. Make some jelly with the strawberries we picked for market. Since the market was cancelled, they will need to be used. I'll post pictures later.
We are also making plans for our u-pick strawberries. The plants have a hole bunch of beautiful berries on them. All we need now is some sun to not only dry the field, but ripen up those berries. Check back for u-pick dates and times.
