Welcome, 2015!

Posted by Kimberli on 9 January, 2015 at 13:50

Ahhhhh, 2014 was a rough year here in Iowa! Cold, long spring; early cold winter. Not much of a growing season I'm afraid. Still, we managed to eke out some marvelous produce and shared our time with a few fantastic helpers. Thanks to Jess, Brooke and Jacob, Michael, and Andrew, our gardens and farm grew with fewer weeds and more love. We just *love* our helpers!

To usher in 2015 we've decided to ignore the once again frigid cold and pore over a multitude of seed and plant catalogs (I think we have around 50 if you would like to browse a few and pass them on!) and make some plans for improvements and space saving techniques, while growing all our favorite veggies at home and lovely edible blossoms and aromatic herbs on the farm. We're getting our plans made and setting up the grow lights and heat mats in the basement. Below is a photo of some of the first things we'll be planting -- pea shoots! Yum.

We've been fortunate enough to scrape together the funds for a couple smallish greenhouses, so we can get into the gardens earlier and grow later than in the past. After 2014 it seemed the only logical thing to do. Crazy Weather! We were remembering 2012 -- our last harvest and delivery was on December 4th!


So here we sit -- mugs of cocoa, home made socks, seed catalogs, an extra pound or more around our middles, big dreams, great plans -- bucking the cold and waiting for spring again.


Thanks to everyone who has supported our little hobby/business the past few years as we try to get on our feet again. It is such a rewarding task to put seed to soil, nurture it, watch it grow and enjoy the fruits of the harvest.

The miracle of all that never grows old, and we are thankful.


Stay warm!
