January Farm Work

It's so nice to work in our greenhouse on a cold day! My husband actually had the same idea, so we had to share.

 He was working on getting a bee hive up to par as we hope this year we can split the   hive instead of having them all fly away. . .Wish us luck! It's really good to have some inspiring friends like Victor and Nancy! Thanks guys!

I was working on planting our peppers for the spring.  Today I planted 24 bell peppers in mixed colors (Ferry Morse), 6 of cayenne (seeds saved from last year), and 6 jalapeno (mild saved from last year's seed packet).  

Our other seedlings are making good progress.  In these two flats are broccoli (one flat), snow peas, cauliflower, and cabbage (second flat).  So far, so 

New herb rack from scrap wood, leftover paint, saved peanut butter jars, and printed labels.

Other than that, this is the time for home maintenance, growing out some new pullets (chicken flock maintenance), starting our lean-to shed on the nice days, and experimenting with cooking all of our wonderful garden treasures and sitting in front of the wood stove.  Life is good.
