New Helper to the Farm

It is our new Mulch Layer! This will help cut down on weeds and pulling weeds. This will increase the growth of all the veggies. Also help us on time management, we now can focus more attention of veggies that we can’t use the mulch layer on.

We have been busy this winter researching paper mulch. Paper mulch mulch unlike plastic mulch does not need to be picked up at the end of the season. We found a couple choices here is one of the top contenders:

Weed Guard Plus is an organic paper mulch

“OMRI Listed Organic Natural Formulation
All-Natural Weed Suppressing Mulch
Effective and durable product
Boosts production, good for the environment”

It will degrade during the season and we just till it in. This will be a big help!

Forgotten Summer Post

Hi gang,

Yep this next post was done in the warmest of day during the summer and I was busy and forgot to post it.

So here a little flashback to summer!

It was tomato season and with TONS of tomatoes around I made basic tomato sauce.
No herbs or spices except some salt.
And two of my favorite tools for the job; good old 1970’s Squeezo! and my trusty battery operated drill!

And away we go! I tried to post a video to show it in action and it would not let me. bummer.

All said and done over 7 quarts on this day.

Now I am looking forward to greenhouse time and planting! Come on spring

 

 

The Shank

The Shank, a lost cut of meat to most people.

Today I used the last of my beef shanks up, how you ask: Beef Bolognese.

Yes it took all day but the kitchen smelled wonderful.0212161617a.jpg

Supper time came and I could not wait, made some fluffy mash taters. It was done nice big scoop of tater then the beef bolognese. 0212161915.jpg
