April newsletter

Howdy from the farm,

 

Do you know what April showers bring? Mud,mud mud. Not my Favorite but when you get half your spring in February this is the price you pay.

Alan and I were talking tounge in cheek the other day and we decided that if global warming brings a shorter winter and more grazing we are fine with it. Actually we agree that the weather is becoming more extreme and what we are doing to make the farm more sustainable will help our farm weather the storm so to speak.

We have started planting and have about half the oats and peas planted and one field of just peas for seed next year already planted. This is a picture of one of the peas that had germinated, with it bing so cold growth has been delayed some.

Soon we will have some 60-70 degree temps and things will really start growing.

Jeremy is feeling mostly better, thanks for your concern and prayers.

Cherie and Barb will be doing the run to Downers Grove, Elgin and Arlington Height this Saturday so please get your orders in SOON.

We are getting very low on chicken, that will be the case for a while.

Thanks so much for continuing to help us farm the right way.

Jeremy, Cherie and the rest of the farm
