Root cellar – started!

Root cellar – started!

It's finally happening!  We've had a dream of building a root cellar and we made the plunge... Why a root cellar? Really, we wanted a giant fridge... space to store food and also space for mushroom spawn!  We keep looking at building more fridge space for our spawn...

Roasted Tomato Sauce

Roasted Tomato Sauce

Lots of tasty tomatoes from the greenhouse.  We have been roasted them in the oven and freezing them for the winter.  So delicious!  We had a pizza using the roasted tomato sauce and all we could say, was, WOW. Thanks to Laurra for teaching us how to prepare them this...

Who’s the boss?

Who’s the boss?

Always amazing - how does the puppy, Iris, get a spot on the soft dog bed? Titan (big white dog) gave up and Whiskey (brown dog) stood his ground a little bit...  The dogs provide a lot of entertainment on the farm!

Garlic

Garlic

Garlic harvest!  We harvested the garlic at the end of August.  We wanted to let it dry for about a month before planting it again for next year. We have several kinds of garlic. Here's the ones that have worked well so far: Chesnok Red Crème de la rosa Yugoslavian...

Honey 2020

Honey!  We did some extracting last week.  As always, it's delicious. We have jars for sale.  $10/jar.  Pickup at the farm or in SW Calgary. Thanks to Grandma (the beekeeper!) and helpers grandpa, nieces Rian and Tiela.

Straw as garden mulch

Straw as garden mulch

Typically, we sell straw as a growing medium for mushrooms.  After getting many requests from others to buy straw, we did market some straw this year to gardeners! We wanted to post some feedback we got on using straw as garden mulch.  We sold quite a few straw bales...

Iris – growing up

Iris – growing up

Little Iris isn't so little anymore!  Last week she was already at 15kg. Iris continues to provide endless entertainment around the farm!

Greenhouse and tomatillos

Greenhouse and tomatillos

Greenhouse is looking very green!  We planted some tomatillos this year.  It's our first time trying to grow them. They are super neat looking and are quite large plants!  The lanterns are interesting.  We'll see what happens in a few weeks.

Titan and Iris

Titan and Iris

Titan getting a brush!  Iris is super curious as to what's going on.  We started brushing Iris already and she's not quite as keen yet as Titan.  Once you starting brushing Titan, he doesn't stop bugging you to continue! The puppy is fitting in well.
