Not a fun summer

It has not been a fun summer and we have gotten to take a vacation we had not planned on due to the flooding from the Mighty Missouri River.  We don't have flood water for a change but we sure can't get to our markets because of road closures.  It looks to be a long lasting problem too.  It has given me time to catch up on some over due yard work and developement of some new jellies, soon to be unveiled. 

Ready or not

Yep, ready or not it is a new market season for us.  Ken has been busy getting the spring crops in and getting seeds started for later things like tomatoes, egg plant and pepper.  I just hope we have great weather and the garden produces better than last years.  I have geared up the old jelly factory again and have a few flavors in development yet as well as a few new ones to start.  We just finished our inspection for our second year of certification and are excited about that.  I have add a few new things to the website and hope to do better as the year goes along about update. 

In full swing

We are now in the full swing of market season.  Just wish the weather would give us a break and save some of this rain for later in the summer.  It has been hard to get in to plant or do any weed control when it rains every day or two. 

New Season

Winter is finally move on and signs of spring are beginning to show and we are already gearing up for another market season.  Seed orders have been placed and they are arriving daily and we are just waiting for it to dry out enough to get to planting.  Ken has started some seeds in the small greenhouses for transplants later.  Jan has check the jelly and jams and has begin to get the inventory up to date on them.  The brooder house is cleaned and waiting the arrival of the baby chicks next month.  Things are shaping up to be a great new season.
