Late Spring on Chickadee Creek

We’ve gotten through all danger of frost, so it’s time to plant our hearts out. Just before the rain we got in a second seeding of beans, more tatsoi and arugula, herbs, salad mix and lettuce. Then we spend a nice drizzly day yesterday planting flowers, squash, and cucumbers. We’ll see you at market this later this week!

The Chicks have arrived!

Our shipment of Black Australorp chicks hatched on Friday March 9th and arrived on the farm on the evening of the 11th. Here they are in action in their brooder:

Their job on the farm is to control insect populations in the vegetable blocks after we are finished with all harvests in an area. They are learning vicious bug eating behavior very quickly.
