Our seed order is in. Everything from eggplant to watermelon to kale ordered and (mostly) received. In a great feat of concentration, our 2012 Organic System Plan has been sent in to the Montana certifying entity, and the planting plan for 2012 is on the verge of completion. To cap it all, our taxes are done.
Margaret and I spend most of our time on a ginormous puzzle or with a nose in a book. As the season creeps closer and closer, the Farm Shares begin to roll in and our pantry is relieved of more and more jars.
As of 2 weeks ago, the bees are still alive and well. We’ve begun to sprout roughly 400 asparagus seeds, which will be a challenge to fit in our greenhouse before they’re transplanted in the spring. The goats are fat and happy and one is (fingers crossed) growing a couple little goats inside. We’re looking forward to 2012 and hoping to fill it with baby plants, baby goats, and honey.
