Yesterday Tamas tilled a new garden. The principle was to widen the main garden on our property by one extra bed. This will almost bring us to ONE acre of production on our property. This seems amazing since we now harvest all our greens from the back outside garden (we used to grow the greens in our greenhouses) and we currently have more produce than we are selling. Expansion by one more LOOOONG bed (equivalent to 6 short beds) will give us the ability to do more succession planting of our greens and be able to let some grow bigger for greens and harvesting others young for salad blends. Right now we often have bouts where we will be out of one green or the other for a few weeks while the next bed matures. We sure are learning a lot more about farming this year than we knew last year. Of course this is how life works right?
Our original green house is filled on one side with flowers and on the other side with herbs. Though it has been weeded 2 times (the weeds are growing quite well) the flowers are all beginning to bloom and we are starting to see abundance. An Organic grower and friend of ours sent us some Genovese basil seedlings which we planted in the green house so we will have lots of basil in the “Earth Blend” and the “Cosmic Blend” soon.
We have been feeling so blessed to be living and working on this property. As we went for a bike ride this evening and spoke about our future and our aspirations, we were privy to a most amazing sun set and some magical cloud formations and the blessing seemed even greater.
We will see some of you at Dufferin Grove Market on Thursday and others of you on Saturday and Sunday and Monday.
