Happy 2015! Happy longer days ahead!
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and remained healthy. So many people around had flues or colds. It's easy to get run down at such a busy time. So far, so good around here.
I received some wonderful gardening, cooking from the garden and greenhouse books that I've been reading every minute I can.
EcoFarmDay, run yearly by Canadian Organic Growers, is also coming up in February, it's always a good learning session and nice to hook up with other local organic farmers.
I'm also reading everything I can about sprouts, will start that once the house gets back to some normality. That back room which had everything shoved into it that didn't belong in the main part of the house has gotten out of control, again. The bookkeeping is priority right now. Once the seed sowing starts, there'll be no turning back.
The Greenhouse is dark inside, unfortunately the roof is covered with ice that's not coming off in the near future. Thus, no salad greens for a while.
We've set up the new Greenhouse with tables, had electricity installed and will be setting up seed trays, heating mats and lights in a few weeks.
The planning of all of this is stirring around in my head every waking moment, and there are a lot of waking moments with the recent full moon in play. I'll be applying these ideas to the online garden planner in the next week or so, then let the games begin!
We're presently getting 2 - 3 eggs a day now from our four little silky hens, some days none.
I've used the last of the frozen garden tomatoes and haven't been out to see if I can buy any local, still have lots of our frozen peppers.
So, back to the books now and then the planning begins - yippeee!
