The world is a stage, and you are a star. Peep out from behind the curtains and see all the faces of those that love you and want to see you thrive. — Little Brown Chicken Here’s What’s Happening At Good Spirits Farm This spring has been unusually windy, and that’s saying something because it’s always windy up here on Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau. Last Saturday, I had this same bee hive blow over for the THIRD time in a month. Luckily, this time I had my new bee suit at the ready, and it worked like a charm. No stings! As soon as I get a little extra bandwidth (hah!), I am going to have to build a windbreak. Having the hives blow over every other week is bad for the bees — and this stressed out beekeeper.
Are you direct-seeding your spring crops or are you transplanting? I direct seeded a couple of weeks ago down and covered my boxes to keep everyone insulated. The radishes, peas and spinach are growing and the carrots are starting to show signs of life, but the kale and romaine is nowhere to be found. I've been doing some succession seeding, but I just don't know if it's time to throw in the towel and go buy some plants from the garden center.
Also, I love nerding out on your land management practices!! Thank you for sharing!!
The details about the relationship between the flerd nibbling on well rested grasses and earth-friendly things happening as a result is seriously cool!
Little Brown Chicken’s quote hit home today - just the boost I needed! And the photo of Benni and Gimlet, so sweet. ❤️
Love the suit!
