It's official...we have a new farm! We just signed the lease last week and have been working like mad to get the garlic planted. It's a real cool spot....a six acre field on a 21 acre piece of land with a lake and a 50hp John Deere!

Making Room for the New Germination Chamber

By | Uncategorized

In the coming weeks we'll be building a germination chamber out of an old freezer so the seeds will have exactly the right temperature and humidity to come to life. But first we had to make some some room in our basement plant nursery. There was an old shower that needed to be torn out, so I hired the best demolition crew in the business. Setting a   4 and 2 year old loose to do demo was insanely fun!! They ripped it apart with their bare hands! Farming is so varied and fun;)
