This week's farm news:
The week started out in full-steam-ahead fashion as we hustled to get all of the sweet potatoes out of the ground before rain. With a lot of perserverance and tiresome grubbing in the ground, we were successful in completing the task! We estimate just under 4,000 pounds of our winter staple was lifted from the garden. Our winter's food supply is looking secure!
After that big project, we slowed down our pace and took things a bit easier for a few days, enjoying some rain and relaxation. Jesse and Hannah took a few days off from the farm to celebrate Jesse's birthday and to look at some land/living prospects for the next stage of their life journey...life after Bugtussle. (Boo Hooo Hooo Hooo! We are so going to miss them when they do go!) They have a few options with great potential and lots of wonderful family support! We are so happy for them!
This week we also transplanted some kale into the high tunnel pretty much filling up the last remaining space in there! The high tunnel crops are looking great! More winter bounty to come!
