This week spring appears to have made an appearance and the snows are slowly receeding! Still things are slow on the farm and in the vegetable gardens so we talk a little about the tough decisions of a small business when it comes to firing a customer. We also celebrated the fact that our AI was successful and our gilt is with pigs!
Then in the community we talk about the farms newset adventure - raising bees. Beekeeping was somethign we had thought about but the kind gift from a listener of ours has started us down the path to our first hive (and likely trip to the ER). So we talk a little about the process we are taking to start up bees on the farm. We are also excited about the impact on the vegetable gardens the added polenators should have!
Finally in the community we talk about a great question a listener posted on our Facebook page about treated seeds and what that means and what our thoughts and practices are on using treated seeds in our vegetable gardens.
