These days...seeding, waiting, hoping, dreaming, planning, tending...happy spring equinox to all of you (just a few days away).
We just picked up our portion of 10 bags of certified organic potting mix, ordered through a friend who was getting a whole skid (70 bags) delivered from Pefferlaw Peat Products (located near Pefferlaw, Ontario). Exciting to stack up this large pile of (frozen) soil next to our greenhouse, knowing in a few weeks the weather will have warmed up and we'll be needing much of this soil to transplant our seedlings.
Below, feasting on greenhouse greens (arugula, mache), planting eggplant, hot peppers and basil...and chickens warming themselves in south-facing soil patches around the yard that have warmed up to the sun! New chicks for this season will be ordered and picked up in just a few weeks. We'll be getting our chicks from the nearby Frey's Hatchery (in St. Jacobs) again this year.
