After a heavy rain this week everything is growing like crazy out there… the weeds too unfortunately, so with some help from my aunt Kiki (a fine CSA member) and friend Colleen we have been making our way through the garden picking heaps of Lambs Quarters and Canada Thistle. On top of that there has been a major need for Colorado Potato Bug Picking as well as control for the infestations of Cucumber Beetles. Even some Flea Beetles have been snacking on the Eggplant. We have been busy out there!

We have finally gotten around to making improvements to our chicken barn, adding 6 new windows the the lower part of the barn. The chickens have been enjoying the added fresh air, especially on the warmer days. The processing date is booked for July 2nd so if you are interested in ordering some fresh farm chickens, please let me know!
