We have been weeding a lot and started planting again. We have planted tomatoes and peppers and a lot more flowers. The flowers we had already planted have come up beautiful and bright. They smell wonderful and the healing garden looks awesome. The peas and green beans are growing real well. The potatoes didn’t do as much, just a few here and there.
We got more bee boxes to put together. A man brought one out here on Monday already to go with the ones we already had and we got it set up for the bees. It’s great that the farm will have its own honey. They came out and did a special on the farm for KET, which is great. The more people who learn about farming, the more that may try it themselves and grow a lot of their own food, which benefits them and others greatly. It’s also very peaceful when you’re working in the garden. (22 May 2013)
