The prepping continues and the tidying commences. Pulling all the tunnels down, irrigation out, and switching the chicken huts from summer to winter means a pile of stuff to tidy away. It is always worth spending the time now to make it organized and easy to find come springtime, since time and energy (and nerves about the growing season) are thin then.
Now is the time to spread everything out, clean it off, repair if needed, toss it if its unusable, and make notes for next year!
If you are hankering for some fresh greens, you can usually find some at the Amish Farm to Market Store. There will be microgreens all winter long and salad mix for quite a few more weeks.
If you need something to brighten up your space as we all get ready for the cold darkness of winter, there are a lot of bright, cheerful Forever Flowers that I'll have this weekend in Thompson Falls! They'll be alongside some of the remaining seeds from last season (I'll be working on this seasons seeds this winter!), Dragon's Balm, Jade Plants and some cute little sachets of potpourri (aka Flower Sprinkles!!)
Lots of dried Forever Flowers remain! All were grown on the farm and are their natural color (no fake dying here!) They'll be available this Saturday in Thompson Falls at the Fall Festival from 2-5pm They pretty much last for forever, require no care except to keep the colors most vibrant they should stay out of direct sunlight and their only nemesis is spider webs!
The main autumnal jobs are to prep the fields, the huts, and the dome.
The huts are all done and covered before the heavy rains come.
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
