Monday- Seed Inventor - Hailey I spent a good deal of time today inventorying seeds today. We hadn't taken the time to do that in a way that separated them into planting times according to soil temp. So that really helped us get a better perspective of what we are looking at. I tried to order more seed from Seeds of Change, but much of what I was requesting is back ordered. I called Whole Foods in Nashville since I am going up there next week to see if they have their seeds in yet. They do...do we thought we would fill int he gaps there. It is our goal to start saving our seed this year (Sorry Monsanto! We're not playing your game!). This will be a big gardening year for us. So much to implement and learn!
Tuesday- Chuck Wagon and 2 More Roosters -Tuesday is our day to deliver a meal to a local family who is at the end of their pregnancy. We set this up about a month ago. They are vegetarian, so it keeps me on my toes with how I order produce, but I think it have been going pretty well. We have been doing this for a month now and will continue it for another month or so.
We also added two more Roosters to our flock. They were given to us (by the family mentioned above), because their flock of hens is smaller and didn't need as many roosters. We were going to put them in the pot, cuz we already have a rooster, but thought we would see how they do together (they are all Road Island Reds). They seem to be fairing well...so they have a little more time, before they hit the pot. :-)
Wednesday- Jars and a Surprise Visit-I got a surprise visit from a new friend who placed a big jar order for folks in the area (she gets a lot together for the Amish too). We had some that were back ordered, and has brought them by today. So we got to take a break and visit for a few hours in the afternoon. They are dairy farmers and I love to pick her brain about dairy cows, she is so patient with me. :-) I picked her brain about Wood stoves right before we got ours too. :-) It is so nice to have people who have "gone before you" to talk to! Its where the best learnin' takes place in my book! I am looking forward to a many years for friendship with her!
Thursday- I just can't think of a thing to share about Thursday.
