On our way to pick up organic chicken feed and lambs and Baron is doing his best to stay awake. Not very successfully.
Lady bugs coming to life under the crabapple tree. Love the red lady bugs!
Baron found the coolest spot in the greenhouse
We were expecting 100 Barred Rock hens this morning and this mornings surprise was an extra box with 25 Easter Eggers and 25 Cornish Rocks!
We had to come up with an emergency spot for the Cornish to get them out of their box.
This morning we planted spinich, beets, carrots, radishes, sugar snap peas and lettuce in the smaller tunnel
And Bill rototilled the bigger tunnel for planting later this week.
I planted lots of little pepper, eggplant and early tomato seeds today.
We also have some cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi and lettuce growing from last week’s planting.

I know it seems early, but today I ordered the potatoes. Bill made the raised beds last fall and we are adding a bed since we ran out of potatoes to sell in early September last year.
Some of the new varieties for this year are Sieglinde, Crackled Butterball and Kipfel Fingerling. We will also have some of our favorites – Austrian Crescent and LaRatte fingerlings, Purple Viking, Red Gold, Desiree, Maris Piper, Nicola, Carola, King Edward and Katahdin. And, believe it or not, this is fewer varieties than we grew last year. Clearly, I have a potato addiction!
