Chris and Shrek have been working all week on the new Hygge Farm Stand building. The wind has been horrible here for the past 2 weeks, but in truth, this week has been over the top where the wind has been concerned. It makes this project much more difficult.
Below is “Supervisor Shrek’s” lounge. A bale of hay that broke apart and which he has now claimed as his spot when he’s working on the building with Chris. Shrek has a pretty cushy job description around here!
This week we planted all the bare-root small fruits, including wine grapes, table grapes, elderberry, sand and Nanking cherry, currants, raspberries and more. The strawberries that were planted in January are growing nicely.
Of course, the fact that the weather has ranged from the high 50’s to the high 70’s all week has encouraged everything to grow. This is the craziest weather. Last night the low temperature was 56 degrees F and tonight we are supposed to get rain and snow. All of that is fine if the wind would just calm down! It wrecks havoc around here with the greenhouses and it gets on all of our nerves wondering what will blow apart next. Yikes!
The beautiful batik below is from Uganda. We have a friend, Chris, who just spent 6 months there working with a remote tribal group. Now Chris is back working in the States. He gifted us with this lovely piece of art work, which I framed and hung in a place of honor. Thank you Chris.
Well, this will be a short post. I’m working on updating all our databases for the new plants we are growing this year. This information will be used for the plant label printer, the Farm Stand inventory, the databases on this blog, and to make signs for these new plants which we will have for sale in the Farm Stand store. It’s a huge task and it seems to be taking me forever to accomplish. I best get back to it.
