At long last, I think there will be seeds in the ground this week. Winter just wouldn't let go, but I think the ground is finally going to dry out enough to till up and plant. Megan has been analyzing and strategizing with the seed packages so long that the other day I told her she might have the seeds worn out before they even get in the ground.
Last week, I was commenting on how much it would cost just to buy cover crop seed for a 2 acre field that is ready for crops, but no plan in place for this year. Before it was over, we decided it would be cheaper just to plant two more acres of winter squash. Go Big or Go Home seems to be our motto.
When we went out the week before last to get soil samples, we found a row of carrots that had been hiding under the barley last fall, so Megan dug them up and washed them off, and we sold a dozen bags of Spring Carrots. We plan to work the rest into our trial batch of Carrot Kraut this week.
It rained most of the weekend, but today the sun is out and the wind is drying out the fields. Wednesday we will pick up the soybean meal fertilizer, and by Friday we hope to have the ground ready for seeds. Can't Wait!
