Happy Solstice!

We've had a great working nice long days in the sun, and now everything would like a good rain! Happy Solstice to everyone (yesterday). We hope you enjoyed the lovely evening!

Today we picked a big mess of garlic scapes, and they are beauties! Here is a shot of Ben in front of the barn, which just got finished with insulation and plaster. You won't recognize it! The drywall guys are doing a nice job.

We also picked a load of greens, herbs, and radishes! Logan made a delicious radish salad with Maple-Miso dressing:

Of course we did a lot of planting this week, including this Bubba Blue baby ginger from Hawaii! We have been pre-sprouting it in the greenhouse for about 2 months now, and this is what it looks like when it goes in the ground:

See the white sprouts with the pink tips? We are looking forward to harvesting "hands" of baby ginger late in the fall. We also planted some Hawaiian Red Turmeric, and Lemongrass! It's going to feel tropical in our greenhouse this summer.

All the critters here are doing great, too! Pigs, layer ducks, and Pekin meat ducks. And the farm dogs when they come in with their owners to work...Here's Hannah's dog Maple. 

 

Have a great week, everyone!

Ben, family and crew
