spinach





Remember this post?
Well, the warmer daytime temps means the spinach is growing fast!
Another week of warm weather and we'll have so many greens to harvest.
Spinach for dinner!

planting seeds





The new high tunnel is staying very warm on these sunny
November days.  Adam decided to try and plant some cold hardy greens
under row covers to see how they would do... Ideally, we would have planted earlier in the fall, but since we just covered the high tunnel, we had a late start this fall.

I'll keep you posted!  :)

finished!




Adam got the high tunnel covered this week!  The boys have been enjoying
foggy evenings playing in it and the chickens are enjoying a little extra warmth
on these chilly November days (their coop is parked right next to it).  
Can't wait to extend our season next spring and fall!

something new









Last year, a group of our church friends helped us build our lean-to.  This year,
a group got together to help Adam construct our new high tunnel.
We applied for a grant for this high tunnel (which covers the materials) and 
we're so blessed to have helpful (and able!) friends to help with the actual construction.
A sweet couple came just to bring a delicious homemade lunch! 
We are filled with gratitude, Adam is planning away on how he will use it and
I'm a bit overwhelmed by the size! ;)
