It’s been a while since the last post, but that’s because we’ve been out in the field prepping beds and transplanting!

Our asparagus was pretty neglected last year in the drought and the scotch grass and weeds most definitely got away from us. Take this as a “before” photo because it will be undergoing a big transformation tomorrow on Mother’s Day. The amazing thing though is that the asparagus is growing like crazy! We planted it from seed 2 seasons ago, so it should be ready for harvesting next season. This season, we will only get a few tasters, so that it can continue growing for next year.

Dad has been out ploughing fields – prepping them to be re-seeded with hay and a nurse crop of oats.

 


We have started eating SO well again – fresh picked fiddleheads from the bush, heritage pasture pork from Pork of Yore and mashed potatoes.

YUM

YUM

Stay tuned as the season progresses! Cheers!
