Kansas weather is never dull; I will say that. Last week, we saw wind, snow, rain, and sun. Planting has been a bit of a risky business. But as one of my favorite authors, Jen Sincero, says, “There is no riskier risk than refusing risk at all.” And so…the planting has begun.

News on the Farm

The first of the tomatoes are in the greenhouse. Can you believe it? Some of you might remember this from last year, but we plant beets on the outside of the tomato plants in 30-inch-wide rows when they are small. This saves us some space.  We can plant more product in one row because the beets will be ready to be harvested before the tomatoes get too large. Bonus! Two crops in one row.


We finally got around to re-building greenhouse #2. As you can see, we have the hoops up, and now we just need to deal with the plastic. The wind has not been very kind in that regard. We’re hoping we get it up and running by mid-May at the latest. Then we can start working on #3 and #4. The greenhouse village is coming soon!

The chickens are doing well here on the farm. They love that they have a new patch of ground every few weeks or so, but what they don’t love is the wind! When we started to move the chickens farther away from the house, we found that not only did we have to be careful of predators, but weather as well. Without a wind block, the chickens could easily get too cold in the chickshaw. In order to keep them warm, we’ve had to move them over by the house on more than a few nights.

Recipe of the Week

Tumeric Honey-Marinated Salmon with Red Beets

I’m not one for fish, but my husband tells me this meal was pretty good. And my 11th grader said we couldn’t have picked a better meal the day before his first track meet, so you’ll have to trust “the fam” on this one. No Pescatarian diet for me! (I learned this new word on the news a few weeks ago, so I’m using it. A Pescatarian diet is a diet where people only eat fish and vegetables.)  I could, however, eat roasted beets all day long. That’s a vegetable farmer for you, I guess.

What's New in the Market Place


We have the beets! And if you want the pickled ones, they’ll be back in the store in 3 weeks! We just received our license for the new kitchen this month, so we’ve already utilized it to process more beets. Don’t forget to visit the Market Place in case there is anything else you want to pick up. We have to have orders for any additional items in by 10 am on Monday morning.
