We're moving ahead and up

Exciting news – we’re getting a new tractor delivered tomorrow.  Going on what every single farmer/market gardener/grass cutting land owner has verified, we have entered into the world of Kubota and look forward to many years of easier-on-our-bodies labour with this new friend to our farm. 

Therefore, the 1953 Massey Harris Pony tractor is for sale, details are:
has PTO, belt pulley, hydraulics, one-furrow hydraulic plow, hydraulic disc set, extra set of turf tires, new front tires, new carburetor and inline fuel filter and a 5’ Woods hydraulic lift belly 3-blade lawn mower; this week has had fuel line and condenser replaced, points cleaned, valves freed up, ignition coil, spark plugs and spark plug wires replaced, transmission/differential oil replaced, engine oil changed, has been pressure washed – it’s in pretty good shape – all for $3,000.00

Once the new tractor arrives, we’ll be really smokin’ out there – nice clean rows of fluffy soil, bio-mulch laid out, tomatoes and peppers and eggplants transplanted – it’ll look like we have gardens of food – because we will.

We have been busy, however, with our hands and can provide the following this week:

Herbs, fresh:  garlic chives, lemon balm, mint, oregano, rosemary, savory, stinging nettle, tarragon, thyme   $2 bunch  
Herb Mix, a mix of several fresh herbs  $5 bunch   let me know if there’s an herb you’re not fond of
Kale  $3 bunch
Radish  NEW $2 bunch
Salad Greens, washed and table ready:  includes green spinach, strawberry spinach, wild spinach, orach, celery, sorrel, arugula, parsley, lovage, mustard, mizuna, cress and various soft and crunchy lettuces and other green stuff growing on the property and edible flowers  $4 bag   
Swiss Chard   $2 bunch

Please see Prices for details – not all plants are still available – ask and I’ll let you know

Sprouts  $3 /bag
Sandwich Booster  (clover, alfalfa, radish and mustard)  
Spring Salad Mix  (broccoli, radish, alfalfa & clover) 

Sunnys, not for everyone this week – the chipmunk couple decided to turn over most of the seedlings in the trays so I’ll be growing these indoors from now on – cute little critters they are. 

Pea Shoots might not be ready this week, but definitely next week.  

If you'd like to purchase any of the above items, I'm happy to provide them if available after our regular customers have ordered.  If you want to know how to receive delivery of our nutritional goodness, see Contact information and email or call me.  Thanks.
Until next post, have a great every day.
