|Little banty hen, Peng (short for Penguin) has been |
on the nest being broody lately. She lays beautiful tiny eggs.
|Lilacs smell incredible right now!|
We were having baby rabbits in the hoops eating all our bok choi. Argh!! Needless to say, we relocated them (not to the oven tho as they were too small). We mulched around the hoops in hopes of keeping the rest of the bunnies out! Also in the hoophouses we have some cilantro and arugula that we harvested the leaves from. Now they are setting flower heads so we hope to harvest the flowers soon.
And that leads me to flower season. We harvest a lot of “wilds” on our farm. They are some of the specialty items that we are known for. Wilds include some “weeds” that are highly nutritious and edible, wild plants from the woods, and also the wilds in our yard which include redbud blossoms and violets.
|Red delicious apple blossoms are sweet.|
|Daylilies we harvest the flowers and buds from.|
Harvesting in the woods right now gives us some early mushrooms and wild onions. We have some sweet cicely coming. It has sort of a licorice flavor.
Super dry for us lately. The rain has been skirting around us. We are really hoping we get a good shower tonight…really need it!! Well…off to work outside!!
