garden food

We planted some onions last year and they are now ready to eat. Yay! I love onions, scallions, and the like. I put some in my beloved's dinner tonight as well as on my salad.

see? you can even see the dirt!

Green Meadows farm

Today we visited Green Meadows farm. We went with Nate's sister and her 2 kids. We had a good time catching ducks (like this one) and chickens, and petting pigs and cows and bison and sheep, and all kinds of stuff. It's the perfect time of year to go, since it's cool enough out and not as many people are attending, due to the time of year. Green Meadows is a petting farm, not really a working farm as such, nevertheless, still fun to go and visit. The ducks, nor the chickens, were too keen on being caught and held, but I managed to catch one of each for the kids to hold. The girl did great with them, the boy seemed scared and unsure. Quite different than what I was expecting. Still, they had a good time.

winter garden

We're getting quite a bit of cabbage and lettuce this time of year. I can hardly believe all that's coming up. I can't wait to start on the spring garden. We're going for compost here in a couple weeks and will be sowing our seeds of love (so to speak) shortly thereafter. I still don't want to plant much until end of this month as we still may get another freeze. After today's weather (78 degrees) I have to wonder...
