It has been a crazy weather ride. We are grateful that we haven’t had the amount of moisture that others have had. Our thoughts and prayers are with those that have be been affected by the weather. We ask that you to include the farmers and ranchers in your prayers.
Here is a glimpse of what we have been up to the last week and a half.
Harvesting the last few sugar snap peas and cucumbers before taking down the fence.
We were finishing the final harvest in one of our fields and cleaning out the plants trying to beat the weather. Sam was mowing down the plants to mulch them to then be tilled back into the ground to feed the soil.
Pulling up the tomato mulch and putting away the drip irrigation hoses was messy.
We did have a bit more clean-up to do yesterday, but the pelleting snow didn’t stop them.
A bit more tilling to do as well. Thankful the snow did not stick around.
As part of the clean-up we collect seeds from the Marigolds to be used next year. Marigolds help to bring in beneficial insects to eat the bad insects.
The flowers will die and dry up.
We will harvest the dried flower heads. When you open them up – each of these long black strips with the white end are a Marigold seed that can be stored through the winter and planted next year.
