Greenhouse – it’s started!

Greenhouse – it’s started!

It's started!  We have the dahlia's and tomatoes and peppers growing in the greenhouse!  It's an exciting time of year.  We were able to collect the recent rain so our tanks are starting to fill up. We went to pickup one of the pots we overwintered in the greenhouse...

Zeus – who adopted who?

Zeus – who adopted who?

This cute little guy has been hanging around for quite some time.  He decided to make himself at home!  We've been to the vet once already and he has another appointment to fixed next week. Kwesi named him Zeus!  He is super cuddly and fun to be around.  And no, we...

Water and ponds

Water and ponds

Each year, around this time, we have little panic moments about water.  Every year is different and we certainly have had years with significant amounts of rain.  However, for the past 3 years, our "big pond" has been close to empty.  The last time it overflowed was...

New life for the honey house!

New life for the honey house!

New purpose!  We are always amazed at how fast we re-purpose buildings around the farm.  The day after the bee items were sold, we had seedlings and the grow lights setup.  Our house does not get much natural light (we have overhangs on the house!) and having the grow...

Winter skies

Year-round, we have beautiful skies!  Sometimes they are dramatic with clouds, sometimes with different colours.  We have a decent view over our valley to the Rocky Mountains.  Even when it is overcast it is still wonderous!  We also see lots of Chinook arches.

Why don’t we sell anything anymore?

Why don’t we sell anything anymore?

From the beginning, we have sold random products from the farm.  It has been fun and enjoyable (mostly!) However, we have been working for the past couple of years to "streamline" and "reduce" some of the extras that we do. The first to go was eggs.  We decreased our...

Wait, we have a blog?

Wait, we have a blog?

We have to admit that the speed at which time is flying by has been a source of frustration lately.  How is it possible that a whole year has passed and we have not updated our blog or anything else online? Yes, I'm sure we have good excuses.   It seems since the...

Who likes winter?

Who likes winter?

Winter is most of the year at the farm.  It typically starts to snow at the end of September and the final snow leaves around the end of May or beginning of June.  The means (October/November/December/January/February/March/April/May) about eight months of the year we...
