Our "night life" goes from dinners at a reasonable hour to "WOW I can't believe how late it is!" Guess this means spring is on its way.
The signs of spring around our farm / market include an abundance of plants in the greenhouse awaiting transplanting. The chicken coop needs a spring cleaning and some work to be done on its fences. And there is some new fencing to be put in for our new spring arrivals (more to come on that later). It's also time for us to be planning for our first event of the season (Spring Celebration on Sunday April 30, 2017). Oh yes, and the addition of another greenhouse – but first we have to dismantle it and move it to its new location. Good thing the days are getting longer: we are going to need it!
Over at Furnace Falls Farm the transformation has begun. The kitchen has been framed in and I can't believe how big the window over the sinks is. Now that we can see the space, I can envision the big kitchen table as a focal point, and can't wait till our guests get to enjoy that first meal ... or maybe we will have to have the first meal there ourselves.
In busy days ahead, it is always good to have a back up plan to simplify some of your meals. We have put together a meal in a bag to take the thinking and planning out of your day.
