The familiar weekly routine of moving chicken runs, adjusting seed flats with baby plants, opening the greenhouse, small tunnels, and frost fabric in the morning and closing them in the evening begins. Even if the normal routines for most people are disrupted, the routines of nature, plants, and animals goes on and so does mine right along with them.
The hens are happy for the sunnier weather and fresh ground, even if it isn't that green yet. The young plants are happy for the sun too, but I have to slowly increase their exposure each day so they don't get sunburned, yep just like us humans! And the soil is warming up and drying out enough to begin planting into. In a few more weeks there will be more green things to harvest than just microgreens!
Check out the online store for what's available this week. I'm working on adding the handcrafts that much of the wintertime hours were spent working on, so keep an eye out for when they show up!
Stop by Friday, April 17th, from 12-1230pm at the Fireman's Park parking lot to pick up your online order, a pre-order (you can email or message me), or just to see what's left!
I'll have free cotton masks available, if you or anyone you know needs one. I've been working on some templates for masks that work well for people with glasses (like me 🤓😎🧐) and think I have found some winners!
The guineas get moved to their new, growing-season space. After a week or two to help them learn this is their 'home' now, they will get out during the days so they can roam, eat lots of ticks, and other bugs, and generally be the farm watchdogs with their ever watchful eyes and super loud calls. When they call, I come running!

I'm Farmer Megan with a life full of cackles, clucks, quacks, weeds, crazy kitten, and one tiny, senior, blind dog.
