The next package to arrive will be full of worms! Yes, worms. Our composting worms are doing so well, it's time to start focusing on the larger fishing bait worms now. These will be left to settle and reproduce for the remainder of this year. So, hone up your fishing skills! The live bait will be ready next spring.
The last shipment expected this week will be full of blackberry bushes! Though we already have several on the farm, these will be planted in a berry patch with produce harvests for farmer's markets and pick-your-own sales in 2018. We are excited to be starting out with four varieties.
The excitement of the package arrivals will soon wane with thoughts of the impending work to follow! To renew my excitement, I remind myself I could be stuck inside crunching numbers all day in an accounting office somewhere. Now, digging in the dirt doesn't sound so bad. Happy farming and God bless!
