2017 looking to Spring

 Our strawberry plant order has been placed.Spring is on the horizon! lol 

5000 plants.3 varieties, AC Wendy,AC Valley Sunset,and a new one Laurel. The downside is we won't have any berries this year. 

Laurel,a mid season berry.

Wendy,early berry that has become a favourite for us and a great first to ripen berry.

Valley Sunset,late season berry that our u-pickers really enjoy,great jam berry and for the freezer.

May 2016!!

Here it is May already! In the past year we have downsized quite a bit.We no longer sell eggs.We have 9 hens and they supply us quite well.
We have asparagus coming,this being the 4th year we expect it to be a great crop!

Pea order is here,just waiting for the right time to plant,super sugar snaps and alexandra are the varieties,alexandra being a shell pea.
Peach and plum trees are blooming and the honey bees are busy.
As for the strawberries.....not so good,maybe next year :)

January 2015

 So this is 2015! Less Facebook and more blog!

In October I got another horse! Didn't plan to but that's how it turned out.She's a sweetheart and I can't imagine her not being here.We still have chickens about 100 but of course they are not all laying.This cold weather is hard on day they are out running around all over the place and the next day they are all cooped up! Spring is like 70 some days away.....yes,I am looking forward to Spring.Made some jelly in the fall and some beets and chow.We didn't have a good growing year here,no cucumbers! Other crops suffered as well,here's hoping 2015 will be a better year.
