Farm Happenings for October 21, 2019

Posted on October 19th, 2019 by Mitch Lawson

The picture shows our high tunnel beet crop.  It is doing quite well!  Unfortunately our earlier field crop did not make it in the heat and the drought.  These won't be ready probably until January or so.  

We are finally getting some MUCH needed rain and it feels like fall.  This is very good for the crops.  This week we will hopefully get our garlic crop planted and do one more planting of salad mix, turnips, spinach, and radishes in the high tunnels for the year. 

We also got a new puppy last week to live with Annie and the chickens since my family took our other puppy, Molly, in as a pet.  The new puppy's name is Rossi. She'll be a big help in guarding the chickens with Annie.  SADLY though the same day Molly jumped out of my truck and broke her leg!  She is stable and should be healed up and jumping around again in about 8 weeks.  Until then she'll be crate bound and is moaning and groaning about that as I type.  Oh the drama of the farm. . . .
