157-Gardening Begins in January

Did you know the gardening season begins in January, even when it is snowing?

It does here at Five Feline Farm!

This episode is chock full of what we have accomplished in the past week. We are recording video of each step and will release that in Five Feline Farm School within a couple of weeks. If you are not already on the list to get course related information in your inbox, you can sign up here. You can also participate in our very brief survey to let us know the types of information you are most interested in. (Don’t worry, we have your answers recorded if you have already completed the survey.)

We also discuss the new potting shed we have on order. One question we answer in this conversation is how we made the decision to order a pre-made one instead of building our own.

You will hear us referencing Larry at Thompson’s Sales in Mattoon, IL. If you are in need of a portable building and within driving distance, please check him out.

One last thing–if you have somehow stumbled on this podcast episode and are not already on our email list, we have a free downloadable ebook for you: Wisdom From the Bees. It’s our way of saying “thank you” for allowing us into your inbox.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

110-Time To Garden

Finally, spring is arriving in the Northern Hemisphere and it is time to get in the garden.

At Five Feline Farm, we are building new raised beds, transferring seedlings to the greenhouses from the basement grow station and rooting out invasive plants. What a great time!

Plus, the Farm Fresh Mercantile will be re-opening on March 7, 2020. If you are interested in ordering scones or mini-pies to pick up, contact us by 5:00PM on March 5.

Until next time…

109-Spring Is Coming

Spring is just around the corner and we have been busy around the Farm. There is much to do this time of year and we are ready to be outside.

On March 7, 2020 the Farm Fresh Mercantile will re-open for the season. We will be open the first and last Saturdays in March from 10AM – 2PM. We will announce the April schedule soon.

108-Gearing Up For Spring

Finally, a break in the dreary weather allows us some time to do a few outdoor tasks. It is time to get tools ready, do early pruning, clean up garden beds and more.

While all of those tasks begin, we are still moving forward with speaking events and course building.

Mark your calendars for the first Mercantile opening of the season on March 7, 2020. We will be open from 10:00AM – 2:00PM. Looking ahead, our 2nd Annual Spring Fling will be April 18, 2020.

Keep coming back, it’s going to get interesting!
