The deer fence is officially complete and now that we have learned to keep the gates closed at night, there have been no more deer sightings inside the fence! Cross your fingers that this trend continues! With our largest infrastructure project behind us, we have moved on! Here are some of the highlights from the past few weeks…
The hoops are up for my 20ft x 96ft hoop house and the plastic will go on soon! I just might direct seed lettuce, radishes, and mustard greens inside the hoop house to be harvested before the tomatoes are transplanted in late May!
I seeded some flats! Here are some future onions, leeks, and shallots. If you look closely, you can see that they started germinating yesterday!!!! I just love it when seeds germinate!
When the sun is out, I must keep a close eye on the temperature…it heats up fast! Last Monday, I had all the doors and windows open.
I got 6 hens about a week ago! They are a cross of barred rock and light brahma. Chickens are pure entertainment and the eggs are so delicious!
My cat, Bob, has decided to leave the hens alone…I was worried for a few days!
Currently, we are constructing the roadside farm stand that I will sell produce out of. This means I get to use lots of fun power tools and a fancy stapler!
Here is what it looks like so far…
And I start each morning drinking coffee and taking in the view.
Looks like you’re making some great progress! I’m glad Bob is leaving the chickens alone. I hope he stays away for good!
Looks great to Grandpa. Can’t wait to see everything that you grow. We had a Victory Garden during and after WWII, but it was only about 50′ X 10′. It was between the RR tracks (now the Burke Gilman Trail) and Beach Drive NE ac ross from our home in Lake Forest Park.
