It’s a busy time on the farm. I am planting seeds and transplants in the field and continuously sowing seeds in the greenhouse. Started harvesting green beans and baby yellow zucchini the past couple weeks, both of which sold out at the Farm Stand this weekend. I’ve also been harvesting lots of fresh herbs: Rosemary, Oregano, Tarragon, Lavender, Parsley and Thyme.

The animals are keeping me busy too. It’s the time of year to shear our llamas so they will be comfortable in warm weather. The laying hens are producing dozens of beautiful eggs and the young hens are growing like weeds. (The weeds are growing like weeds too!)

With so much activity, it was the perfect time to host a field trip for our local first grade classes. We had 100 students visit the farm over two days last week! They learned a few things, helped with some chores and checked out every square inch of the farm.

Soon my time will be occupied with harvesting, more planting and weeding, and managing the Arbuckle Certified Farmers Market. It’s always busy here, but certainly never boring!
