Our Farm's first blog entry!

Good morning all!

 Welcome to Sweet Harmony Farm’s first blog entry. 

 As I sit here typing it is yet another cloudy, rainy day, after a week of cloudy, rainy days.  I am looking out the windows at beautiful green grass on our back lawn, filled with many clumps of blooming white clover and yellow dandelions.  We even have clumps of what looks to be red dandelions.  They are so cute, and Dan always mows around them.  Both our lawnmowers and the weed wacker need repair so the grass is getting long and seems to have gone to seed.  We’re thinking that’s a good thing!  It should help fill in the patches of bare ground.

  Last week I planted seeds and transplants in our little garden so the rain has been welcome.  Last years’ oregano and chive plants are huge and spreading. The tomato, zucchini, eggplant, and basil transplants that I planted with them, the ‘Ratatouille Bin,’ are doing wonderfully and so far no little critters have dug them up.  (Note to self: pick up large container of cayenne pepper to sprinkle around the plants!)  Something from the year before always sprouts up in the current year on its own, and this year it’s tomatoes again, and surprisingly a few lettuce plants.  I’m still waiting for the veggie seeds to sprout:  green beans, carrots, beets, kale, and swiss chard, and a whole of bin of sunflowers.   We have 4 bins, all made with 4 x 8 pine boards and filled with compost, a total of 128 square feet, so it’s not that big, but plenty to keep us busy.
