164-Spring Has Arrived

With the arrival of warmer weather, the outdoor tasks at the farm begin in earnest. In addition to planting, transplanting and taking out invasive plants, we are preparing for the season opening of the Mercantile.

On Friday, March 19, 2021 from 10:00AM – 2:00PM we will open the Mercantile. Our onsite store features great products such as handcrafted soaps and balms, specialty baked items, jams, and produce in season. Plus we host the work of some local artisans.

In this episode we mentioned our Gardening the Five Feline Farm Way class. If you are not already enrolled, you can still get in at the low introductory price of $19.00. This gives you lifetime access to every lesson we add. The course is growing and the price will too before too much longer.

As always you can keep track of everything at Five Feline Farm through our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) or on our email list. You will get a free downloadable ebook just for signing up.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

162-Filling Our Time by Filling Stock

The long cold days are about to come to an end and we are thankful.

We have also set Friday, March 19, 2021 as the season opening of the Mercantile.

Between those two things, we are working hard to fill our product stock now while we have the chance. As soon as the weather breaks, we have a lot of outside chores to do and we want to have full shelves when we open on the 19th.

Donna has been busy making balms, soaps and shampoo bars. She is creating a new line of botanical scents that are sure to please.

Julia has been in the kitchen testing heritage recipes to add to the menu plus will be stocking up on jam.

All of a sudden, we are not bored any more.

Mark your calendars for March 19. We can’t wait to see everyone.

Stay tuned to our social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) or subscribe to our email list for more details.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

P.S. Registration is still open for the low $19 introductory price for our gardening course.


161-Polar Vortex at the Farm

It is mid-February 2021 and the Farm is deep in the grip of a Polar Vortex. For us, that means temperatures hovering near 0º with windchills even lower. It is too cold to work outside even though we are chomping at the bit to begin gardening.

Even with the uncooperative weather, we are still able to complete some tasks that move us closer toward Spring and the season opening of the Mercantile.

In this episode, we talk about what we have accomplished and some upcoming next steps. This includes the delivery of the new potting shed this past week.

So even though we can’t be outside, we are making the best use of our time and looking forward to warmer weather.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines
