There's always something happening here on the farm. But, as far as the boyz were concerned, they were more interested in the new water puddles left by all the recent rains and our excavation/preparation work!
We started digging out and leveling a pad for our new addition behind our house about 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately, we were hit with a lot of rainy days and were delayed in getting the work done.
But patience prevailed… Today, all that work paid off as we took delivery of our new greenhouse!
There is still a tremendous amount of work to get the greenhouse environment to the state we want to get it into. But, the real work will be in what goes into the greenhouse. Stacy and Jan have already planted all their seedlings and have been growing them in the garage for a couple of weeks.
The girls are planning to fill the greenhouse with all types of herbs, spices, vegetables, and fruits and we are all looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labor (pun intended) in the coming weeks.
From what I have seen thus far, there will be lots of goodies for us to eat and sell at the farmer's markets around Ottawa and Baldwin City.
Be sure and check back often and watch for lots of pictures as the planting progresses and we start to see all the hard work begin to pay off.
I want to give a huge shout-out to the folks at D & M Mini Barns for providing us with the great buildings they have built. This is the second building we have purchased from them and we are very happy with their products and services. We now have a livestock barn and greenhouse built by their skilled craftsmen.
If you are in the market for a shed, chicken coop, greenhouse, or stock barn give them a call!
