A Note From The Farmer's Wife

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Cara and I am not a farmer, just his wife. I am, however, the creator of all things bloggy and paperwork related, so any posts you read here will most probably be written in my farming-is-lost-on-me prose.

If you have a serious question about something that requires acutal knowledge of a tomato seed from a squash one, please, I implore you - email Jeremiah!

With that said, enjoy our blog and please try not to giggle too much at my expense.

All Purple Thumbs,

The Farmer's Wife

What's Doing At Little Village Farm

Well, I went away for a few days last week and came home a completely different looking field!

The bee hive has been prepped. Two swarms will be arriving on Friday, the 28th. POLLENATION HERE WE COME!

The chickens have been producing like crazy! They like them some nice warm weather too. Want eggs? Come and get 'em!

The tomatoes cages are built and placed...no leaning tower of fruit this year!

An electric fence runs the perimeter, keeping out the critters and keeping our crops safe! Man- but digging the holes for all those posts gets me tired just thinking about it!!

All the plants are in and rows are clearly marked. Our former-'back yard' is really beginning to look like a sweet little village farm!

Thanks to all of you who have entrusted your vegetables to Jer. Starting a farm from scratch is no small task, but if anyone can do it -- he can!
