We’re finally getting a few sunny days in a row, warming the soil and waking flora and fauna. Underneath the rampant weeds, signs of intentional planting are beginning to manifest.
We have a last batch of New Hampshire eggs in the incubator, with a hatch date of June 22. The next time we set eggs, it will be from our carefully-selected breeding stock, in early winter.
Strawberries are coming ripe, and it’s a daily battle with the robins to pick them intact. Raspberries, blueberries and black currants look to be setting a bumper crop this year, so a little sharing won’t hurt.
Some of the new greens we’re trialing are a hit – Beedy’s Camden kale, Winter Wonderland lettuce, Donkey spinach to name a few. We’ll update in more detail as soon as we can turn our backs on the weeds for longer than a few minutes.
