As the title of this episode suggests, we are starting to see warmer temperatures in East Central Illinois.
Those warmer temperatures allow us to begin the outdoor tasks like removing invasive plant species and burning up the cuttings.
We also have been able to check on the honeybees. We may have lost one colony over the winter, but the other two seem to be doing well. They have plenty of food stores to get them through until pollen and nectar start, but just in case, we added a little more in the form of winter patties.
The Mercantile will re-open on Friday, March 19, 2021 for the season. We will be then be open almost every Friday until Christmas. Keep watching our website, email and social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) for more details.
Two links were mentioned in the podcast.
First is our online gardening course: Gardening the Five Feline Farm Way. It is packed full of videos and information about each step we take here at the Farm to produce all our garden goodness. We are offering a low introductory price of only $19 for lifetime access. As we continue to add lessons, the price will go up.
Second is our Gert’s Garden 2 Go© bags for customers within our delivery area (15 miles from the farm). All of the details are available through the link below.

As usual, we are busy here at the farm.
Until next time,
Donna, Julia and the Felines
