Hella and the Hens
A week of crossing as many things off the list as adding onto it!
The bucket shelves are done in the trailer and soon the Dragon Wagon will be rolling all over delivering fresh flower and food goodies!
Hella had a field trip into the world of the hens, albeit a very short one!
More seeds get to meet the soil, with high hopes for a fruitful future in the Dragon Dome greenhouse!
And a few new additions to the yard sale items are waiting for their forever homes!
More projects are still underway as the focus turns from making the cabin cozy and comfy to prepping for an avalanche of seedling trays and all the future packaging and management to get them from me to you!
And if I've planned my time management correctly, I might even get a few new wreaths and/or dried flower bouquets up online so you can be ready early for the impending February holiday!
More seeds are going into soil and this time it's the first batch of tomatoes. The plan is to heat the greenhouse Dome in late April (and probably a few nights into May, weather dependent), so those baby plants will have a nice place to get a head start. I'll be starting a second batch to plant the more usual early to mid May, in case that plan fails.
Hella had a midday field trip into the realm of the hens!
She wanted to go in and sniff around. The hens didn't mind. But she quickly felt outnumbered and wanted to be released!
Wintertime is when all the administrative stuff gets done, like crop planning and packaging prep! As usual, Hella is a constant helper and gets to inspect all boxes and finished projects for quality.

Is it a Microgreen or a Sprout?
This is a common question I get at Farmer's Markets and the main difference is how they are grown.
Sprouts are germinated in water only, no soil, and are only a few days past germination and haven't 'greened' up yet.
Microgreens (and shoots) are germinated in soil and are grown from 7-21 days, depending upon variety. Plus, they get a chance to 'green' up and start producing chlorophyl.
Both are nutrient-dense, yummy, and are great additions to your fav salads, smoothies, wraps, or any meal you fancy!
