187-Building Garden Beds and More

In this week’s episode we share our vision for the garden area and how we have started to implement that vision.

This week at the Farm has been hot. Humid and hot. But that doesn’t stop us.

The timing was right in the garden to replace some of the in-ground planting areas with raised beds. The end result is exactly what we wanted even though the weather was not cooperative.

Even while we work on improving the garden, we are also continuing to dream up new things that will be useful to our customers. Keep coming back to learn more about how we are transforming some of Donna’s photos and inspiration into a tool for you.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines


171-How the Farm Fared in a Freeze

Hello from Five Feline Farm!

This past week, our area experienced an unusual late snow and freeze warning for two nights in a row. We covered everything possible and prayed for the rest.

Everything was fine! It appears the snow had an insulating effect. Coupled with the temperature not dropping quite as low as expected and our covering efforts, we did not have any loss of plants.

Don’t forget Kwiksilver Karaoke in the Crib on May 15, 2021 from noon to 4:00PM. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy some fun music.

You can always find out what is happening by following our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) or signing up for our email list.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

P.S. We are continuing to add to our Gardening the Five Feline Farm Way course. We use video, presentations, checklists and more to provide instruction on how we garden here. You can get in now for only $39 for lifetime access.

168-Interview with Cathy Hiser

Who doesn’t love fresh flowers?

In this episode, we interview our friend and neighbor, Cathy Hiser about her new venture in flower farming.

She describes her interest in growing flowers, the types of flowers she has started and when she anticipates fresh picked blooms will be available.

As a bonus, we plan to include some of Cathy’s fresh flowers in the Mercantile this year. Possibly even as an add on to our weekly deliveries which begin in mid-June.

Stay tuned for more about this and more at Five Feline Farm through email and social media.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines (and Cathy)
