Diary 4/23/16

Seems like the harder I try, the slower I go sometimes. Trying to reason with that and slow down, ha-ha! So, I have missed blogging some progress on the farm. I am in charge of the Shady Cove/ Trail Wildflower Show which is coming up on May 7th and 8th. We will be collecting the flowers next week.
I have started some tomatoes for the plant sale and a few neighbors and friends. Not the 3000 we used to do!

Diary 4/6/16

Calypso Orchid
Putting 1" aviary wire down into three foot deep beds, creating a giant basket of soil the gophers cannot get into. Hoping to have peppers and eggplant this year. Made a potato box and could use a couple more. Again, gopher protection in order to get food! What a battle it has become. the work we do this year will last into the future, so that is good. Just lucky I didn't have all these problems when I was farming commercially. Hot today, I saw 84 degrees on the thermometer. Supposed to be a little hotter tomorrow and then a break for the weekend and possible showers.
