It’s been two weeks since Wildflower Farm officially broke ground. We’ve tarped our field blocks, ordered potting soil, seeds, compost and started construction on the propagation house. Off the farm, we’re making phone calls and meeting potential customers and markets in the area.
There are some signs of life in the field–the fox, wild onions, earthworms. It’s been wet, cool and windy here lately; there were even a few tornadoes nearby last Friday. We are fast wheeling to spring.
With the equinox nearly a month away, there’s still much that needs doing. This project is itself a seed that needs the proper environment to germinate, thrive and bear fruit. In February, we prepare to coax the seedling from its shell.
