Daily Farm Pics – June 14th, 2009

We were super busy in the gardens today. The chicken pen is now 2 feet taller. The clucking ladies are enjoying the extra room to roost. It was hectic rounding them all back up today.

We also planted a lot more veggies! Kale, Chard, more Arugula, more Sunflowers, Sesame, Dill, Sacred Basil, 3 types of radishes, a mixed greens galore and Cucumbers. The current patches are full now. Next step will be prepping a new section for corn and wheat. We’ve purchased wheat berries from a local farmer that has a nice strain of wheat for the area.

We’ll also start preparing an area for broccoli, cabbage and mustard greens. If we can continue to successfully expand our gardens, we’ll be growing at least 50% of our own food by this fall.

Missed the afternoon shot. 😦
