Breathe Easy

Amazingly enough, there was no snow damage on the farm. The 2 x 4 braces worked! We got around 8 inches on the farm and it is a beautiful sight. The roads have been
treacherous though, and it took two attempts in our 4wheel drive truck to make it over to our farm. Things in our greenhouse were drying out fast so I'm glad we made it when we did. We are thrilled to see the bells of ireland are germinating; we haven't had these germinate since '06.
You can see the new shed that Stuart and Gerard put together. This is going to be a much-needed tool shed located close to our cultivation fields. We are now ready to debut the inside of our second hoophouse. We are still in shock that it hasn't been planted yet, but the weather has been rough this winter. Extremely wet and very cold. So perhaps in March and April we will have loads of veggies??? Since we've been snowed in, Stuart and I have played a million games of ping-pong for our cardiovascular workouts and strength training. Gotta get ready for the season somehow, right? I am thrilled to announce the fact that I won my first (and as of yet, only) game against my husband. I have now entered the realm of lightning speed reflexes, ace serves, line shots, and everlasting rallies. Watch out brother Ben, you are next.

Is that last photo an invitation? Glad y'all had no damage and that you saved those drying wee infant plants!
