Photo Update 5.2.14

Well the camera is not working properly, so I am going to do a photo update with pics a couple days old. Imagine everything a little bigger!!

These lovely cucumbers are about twice the size now! They are ready to go outside when it warms up. Mmmm, fresh cukes.

Double Yield Cucumbers.
 Kale! Some of the cutest darn transplants. Red Russian on top, and below, Dinosaur or Lacinato kale. These have also bulked out and sturdied up.

 These couple of pics are pre-monsoon. Here we have the first row of peas planted on the 22nd. Huzzah! Field work. When we can get back in the field the fence will go in.

Snap peas in the ground.
Potato trenches! Our new rotary plow attachment is amazing! It made creating these trenches a breeze, which makes John's back very happy :) This plow address a "logjam" in our farm management and will allow us to better utilize our cover crops (more organic matter!) as well as create trenches for things like leeks, potatoes and more. Awesome.

Late season potato bed.
 The pigs are out on the flint corn field from last year. There is not tons of green grass, but they have been cleaning up the corn remaining and digging up every square foot. What amazing tillers! Now we just need things to dry up a little for them. Those mamas are looking more and more pregnant all the time.

The pigs are digging their expanded pasture space.
 Oh chickens, you constantly entertain us with your antics.

Hen, giving me the once over.
We're celebrating! Today is John and my fifth wedding anniversary - how time flies. Here's a pic from our wedding day, May 2nd, 2009, at Lake Bemidji State Park. Cheers!

Another reason to celebrate--my little brother and his wife welcomed their first baby into the world a couple days ago. Welcome little Abigail Laine - we can't wait to meet you!

What a wonderful week - the sun has even decided to make an appearance today!
