What’s been going on!

 Incredibly beautiful days, one after another and we have been getting quite a bit done, construction projects, repairs, a bit of planting.  Today we slide three of the little tunnels over what will be late winter harvested flowers and greens.  The anemones and ranunculus have been in the ground for a few weeks now and are coming up so they are ready for some protection as the temperature will surely drop.

Always a few more winter preparations to take care of.  Time to drain the irrigation system and other water pipes.  Some vehicle and tractor maintenance.  Transplant greenhouse battening getting ready for the late December seedings that will soon fill it up with spring crops, I know hard to believe we are talking about next spring already.  The seed catalogs are pouring in now and soon the 2018 crop planning sessions will begin.

We hope that you all had great Thanksgiving breaks and meals.  We certainly did.  Jennie drove home to Indiana to be with family and on the way back picked up our new mower for the tractor!  We of course stayed close and had good visits with family here in the area and worked on several projects as the weather was too good not to.  Soon it will be real indoor/woodstove season.
