A week of snow means some projects will be put on hold and others will just require me to slog through it. Construction projects in winter take much longer as they require clearing the snow away and taking time to warm cold fingers and toes.
But the very last of the planting, the eagerly awaited peonies, arrived and got into their wintery homes! Now the only planting that happens until spring is what I can do inside, like the microgreens and some rooted cuttings. I sometimes think I mainly keep them growing in winter as an excuse to get my hands dirty and feel the soil between my fingers!
The lights are on in the huts and runs, so in a few weeks the hens will start laying a little more frequently and I'll have to trot out every few hours, or sooner depending upon the cold, to scoop them up and bring them in so they don't freeze solid!
Don't forget to order your micros, eggs, or dried flowers for pickup or just stop by on Friday to see what I've got! It's all in the online store, which is open from now until 10am on Friday.
Look for me and my snow covered black truck in Libby at the Chamber/Fireman's Park parking lot from 12-1230pm and in Troy at the Museum parking lot from 1-130pm!
Be safe on those roads!
Peony planting under the snow!
They finally arrived and I was ready! The soil was prepped and clear of weeds, covered in straw to block out the cold, and a tarp over it all to make it easy to flip the snow out of the way. The soil was lovely and soft with just the right dampness.
Sometimes the snow fills the sky as well as the ground and sometimes the clouds clear and the mountains appear!
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
I'll be at Libby this Friday from 12-1230pm!
