Spring Projects and Many Thanks!

The onions are in the ground and growing! This year we started half of our onions from seed and the other half we purchased as plants from Dixondale, a Texas onion farm. Thanks to everyone that helped us get beds ready and the onions planted: James, Chris, Ethan, Ron, Claire, Sara, Jaclyn, Breanna, and Catherine.



Bees have arrived at the farm! We owe a huge thanks to our neighbor & master beekeeper, Tom, who invited us to help him remove these bees from another neighbor's wall. We carefully removed as much comb and as many bees as possible and transferred them into this hive. They are now happily buzzing around at the farm, enjoying the Cottonwood blooms. We will be learning about beekeeping as we go along this year, and will update with exciting bee news!

Matt checks on them after the move:


We are building a seed starting greenhouse too! Between planting, bees, animals, and everything else that occupies us, we have been making progress on the greenhouse. This is where we will put our seedlings after moving them from the house. Help from Chris, James, Brian, Breanna, and Ron has been much appreciated!

Matt and Chris making teamwork look cool:


I will be posting more spring plantings soon!

Sprouts!

Snow fell on Skull Valley two weeks ago, leaving with us over an inch of precipitation!


The moisture has coaxed the cover crop into sprouting!


The garlic is happy under the snow too -- the straw that we mulched with slows the melt rate. To the right of the garlic is radishes that we seeded before the storm, and now we have sprouts!


Look for more updates on new growth!
