What a Weekend!
Hello All !
I am hoping that we all got out to enjoy this unprecedented warm stretch!
72 degrees here at the farm, just unreal……………
Our weekend project was to put a brand new “sheet” of 6 mil plastic over our new high tunnel…. We started at 7 am and finished the job by 9:30 am…. This installation needs to happen while there is little to no breeze as the slightest gust of wind would lift you off the ground, and holding onto this massive sail is almost impossible, so crack of dawn is the absolute best time to cover over our new high tunnel… Joe ( my husband) and his good friend Andrew have been putting these coverings on our high tunnels for years so they have a good working system…I run the tractor lifting them up to the peak but primarily stay out of their way, lending a hand as needed……this high tunnel will provide us with another season extending space, and I will plant in the next few weeks a perennial bed of asparagus and spread another sheet of clear older plastic over the remaining space to “solarize” the ground, hoping to rid it of weed seed in preparation for an early spring crop of greens.
We are back onto our winter ordering and delivery schedule (Wednesday order deadline and Friday delivery), and the turkey group grows everyday…. Order yours today ! We are also taking preorders for Christmas holiday hams, duck and goose…..
And as always my grateful thanks for your continued support of our farm and for fresh local foods grown by our excellent small Maine farms!
Ohh and yes, tomorrow is Election Day! If you have already voted , good for you! And if not, take a few moments tomorrow to vote your opinion….
honestly every single vote counts!!!!
