The Farm Report
This pic was taken 'pre-failure.' I wanted to be able to show you the loads of strawberry blossoms that were setting on the hydroponic strawberry plants. LOADS! of 'em.
But now this is what I have to show you. Wilted over, sad strawberries.
And their little blossoms have turned black inside. Frozen off.... Well Dang!
They have recovered and are re-blooming now, but....
It got so cold in there it even stunned the peas and the radishes.
I didn't think peas could be zapped by a freeze. It turns out, they can.
The spinach did better, but it even said, "No, Thank You!" to the cold.
New thermostat installed, and we're back on the program.
In the Good News department, I've potted up some new Caroline red raspberries to set out later. I really like using these fabric pots to start things. The plants seem to like them, too.
Cup half full or half empty? These coleus have made a great start, but half the pot damped off. Fingers crossed we'll have nice plants later on.
This is our favorite all time sweet corn. It is wonderful. Sweet, and it actually tastes like corn.
Annie moved right in and just collapsed. It was like she was saying, "Sheesh! What a week, Tim. I'm exhausted." She got her fav pillow in the right spot and just chilled out for a nap. I hope you can do that too. Other than that, life is good here at Oakdale Farm - until the next thing goes FFFFUUTTTT! Then I'll say, "Well Dang!" and deal with it. Cheers!
