We want to keep Chef happy!

So I am told, one of the things that our "new" chef asked about when he was hired was whether or not we had an herb garden. Well, we have a farm. Granted that it is winter, I would hate to think that we can't at, bare minimum, keep him in fresh herbs.
So while we are letting things grow slowly in the hoops, we have working to beat the band to make things happen in our "secret garden". Someone asked about why I would refer to it by that name. . . stay tuned for that post.

In the meantime, we have been scrambling to make things happen. You know about the peas,if you have been reading this blog for any length of time, but we have been growing and starting herbs over the last couple of weeks hoping to start getting stuff back in the cafe by February. . .

Rosemary, German Thyme, Dill, Oregano, Broad leaf Sage, etc have been started and growing. Today was very special as we noticed Amethyst Basil popping out of the soil in a tray set that we thought was dead. . .

To fill a rainy day we complimented our garden work with cleaning of the barn to better serve our plans for upgrades for the coming season.

We are still composting!! Yup, it's winter, but things can happen with proper management. If you are interested in participating, we are always accepting kitchen scraps. Drop us a line or stop by if you have questions.
