A spat of snow arrived to light a fire under me to get all things in and under the soil before winter arrives in force and the pouring rain gave me a good chance to clean and tidy inside both cabin and barn.
All the fall cleanup like draining hoses, tidying planting beds, and prepping for fall bulbs gets to happen on the sunny, dry days when my clay soil isn't so heavy and the hens get a chance to stretch and flap and get a move on with finishing replacing their feathers (most hens are looking good but some are late molters so they can be a raggedy band this time of year!)
This week is the first Friday Pop Up/Drop off at 12pm in Libby and 1pm in Troy.
You can prepay and order using my online store or email/message so I can set items aside. Look for my black pickup full of dried flowers, micros, and (a little) eggs in the parking lots for each market!
The micros have all been migrated inside to their winter home in the seed starting area where they get to enjoy the good life under the lights and in the warmth of the cabin!
The few flats of perennial flowers that I still need to get in their permanent beds before the real snows come also get to come inside to pass the deep freeze. This Delphinium flat has a cute little Liverwort friend (upper left) that has grown up among the mosses. I'll put her in a nice little pot that can stay damp in the windowsill until spring so I can return her to the woods!
I finally got some fall cleanup done! The before pic would show a 5-6' sunflower stalk the size of a broomstick in each hole. They either got pulled out or cut off at the base so the soil macro and micro organisms can have some winter food! I couldn't bring myself to pull the pansies yet, but winter will come for them too.
After days spent hiding in their huts from the pouring rain and the snow, the hens are happy to get out and play! Hella too even if the hens don't wanna play her games!
The currently available wreaths and other dried flowers have all been added to the online store so you can reserve one for you or yours!
