I guess I've had enough time off from the hectic days of this summer past....and now it's time to get back in gear and get ready for our new and hopefully wonderful summer of 2013.
Mother nature put the hurt on our orchards in Michigan last year....farmers keep on chugging along and hope that this year there will be a bumper crop! We plan on planting lots of those wonder veggies for this year, I might even talk Joe into trying a few things new for 2013! Don't get to excited...there is still a long time before we will be picking our own veggies, but we can dream of those warm summer days, with butter running off your sweetcorn and down your arm!
Maybe a thick slice of tomato, a few slices of bacon a little mayo and....OK, I'll stop! LOL
Let's get back to business...
Joe put new natural gas heaters in our large gutter greenhouse. This should help to keep our heat bill down a little this year, and we should be firing them up very soon. I can't believe it's already the middle of February! I think I'll dig around for a comfort food recipe using some of the veggies I froze last summer! I still have some sweet corn, some green beans, a little bit of broccali and maybe if I dig deep I might find some brussel sprouts. Check back next week and let's see what kind a great dish I came up with.
Oh yea! Joe and I become grandparents for the first time in November! Our son Joe, and his wife Ashlye had a beautiful baby girl - Our Little Miss...Kenadie. Maybe she will be the next generation to take over on the farm!?!?!? She's a keeper !!
