Well hello long lost friends! It’s been a while since you last heard from us, as we took a much needed winter break from all the things farming (including the website). Break or no break, we have been hard at work on our newest CSA or farmshare offerings, with some VERY exciting new additions. We are going with a great, mix and match model to help people customize their weekly share with exactly what they want. This includes flowers, fresh tea and herbs, locally grown mushrooms and even pastured chicken (new this year!). If you’re local and haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to do so. Spots are very limited.
While we have been taking a break from farming, really a farmer’s work is never done. The past few months are generally dedicated to planning for the coming season; ordering seeds, plants and trees. Ordering chicks to add to our laying flock, ordering meat birds to be run through our silvo pasture etc.
One of the hardest jobs ANY farmer or even home gardener has, is determining which seeds to order for the coming growing season. Armed with stunning color catalogs and a selective memory of the amount of work involved, it’s easy to go a little crazy. So when that box of seeds arrives it’s east to find yourself quickly overwhelmed with dozens of seed packets to sort through.
Well friends, I’m here to help you sort through the fruits of your overactive gardening imagination! While MANY other (much more famous) youtube gardners have highlighted this seed organizing system, I’m here to take it a step further. The real KEY to a successful growing season, is organization and planning. Taking a few extra moments in the beginning, and it will save you HOURS later on.
I show you how to use my method for both organizing your seeds and writing our your seeding starting schedule in the video below, but I am also thrilled to share this free seed starting planner with you! Simply fill in the information on each line and each page for the corresponding week. You can also print this out and keep it a gardening binder (like I do) for easy reference later on.
