It’s hard for me to believe that it has been a month since my last post! Lots has happened but I was always waiting for time to develop the perfect post, well that time never came, so here is a brief update! Sadly, we did not get approved for our high tunnel as the program has run out of funds:( No high tunnel means more time to experiment with other projects!
We have started seeds, planted transplants, cleaned raised beds every pretty day that we have had this spring. When I think of spring the first things that come to mind are daffodils, strawberries and asparagus! I hope to have time to write about each of my favorites soon. But March was full of strawberries, so let’s start there! My dad and I have birthday’s in March and I made my first homemade strawberry cake with cream cheese icing for the occasion. I need to work on the presentation but it tasted pretty good!
For my birthday, I had a list of kitchen gadgets I wanted but at the top was a ninja blender. My coworker has one and she was teaching about making “green” smoothies and I just fell in love with the machine! I was not disappointed and have made many strawberry smoothies since (I even added some spinach to some to copy my coworker’s “green smoothie”)!
I cannot wait until fresh strawberries are in season and we can start making pies, jams, etc. Until then we will just continue to Live…Grow…Farm!
