Is the sun finally here to stay?
I sure hope so, cause my fields are still buried under a bit of snow, though fast melting. Farming and gardening have few guarantees, especially when it comes to weather. When tending the land within our modern landscape you are constantly torn between 'land time' (which is based upon weather, climate, soil moisture, winds, the seasons, and neighboring wildlife) and the modern human schedule of appointments, errands, and following a clock that doesn't care when the sun comes up or goes down.
Spend too long deep in one set of time and it can be hard to adjust back to the other. But watching seeds you put into soil with your own hands, eating food you grew from those seeds, and watching flowers bloom on their own schedule helps ease us back into 'land time'.
There's a fresh batch of microgreens for this week so you can feed yourself from your local land and, if you are looking to plant some seeds of your own, there'll be a restock of seeds heading to Homesteaders by the end of the week!
What are Microgreens?
Yes, that is the gate to my main growing field.
and yes, that is still a good bit of snow.
But, the sun is out and daytime temps are in the 40s so the melt is fast!
If my impatience lingers I may just use an old trick of sprinkling a little wood ash onto the snow to help it along ;)
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
The Mini Microgreen Market of course, running all winter!
Thursdays from 12-1pm at the Libby Chamber of Commerce
*come inside where it's warm & toasty while the micros are chill in their mini cooler*
