Farm Friday

We were scheduled to attend a North Carolina Cooperative Extension school today.  The topics were high tunnels (aka hoop houses or unheated greenhouses) and asparagus.  The weather forecast was for a bit a snow last night, turning to rain this morning.  However, when I looked outside last night and saw the ground covered with snow, I knew we were probably in for more than the prediction.  Here's what we saw this morning:

So, instead of driving to North Carolina, we did a bit of this:
Doesn't Mr. Fabulous look confident and relaxed?
Despite the weather not always cooperating, we were productive this week.  We attended a vendors' meeting at the farmers' market and put in a request for a particular spot.  We were told if we don't get that spot, we'll get the one next to it.  We also made a couple of deliveries of eggs, now that the girls are laying again.  Bill started prepping the raised beds and I worked on aprons and a few other crafts for a spring craft show next month.  

Have a great weekend!

Probably shouldn't mention that I was in a t-shirt today planting carrot and onion seeds in the garden as it was 60 here in Portland!
