It’s chick arrival day!

It’s going to be a busy day around Our Farm. The chicks will arrive at the Kinburn Farm Supply very shortly, and I’ll get a call to go pick them up, along with their feed and plenty of wood shavings to keep them cozy and dry in their brooder boxes. We got their boxes all set up last night, so everything’s ready to install them in – as my friend Jill says – Cluckingham Palace!

Just a quick note, 75 of these beauties are already spoken for, so if you haven’t gotten in touch with us about getting your name on the list yet please do so quickly while there’s still some available. Otherwise, we can put you on the list for the second batch that will be ready in July.

This afternoon, I’m heading into town to give a talk to some Grade 12 students who are taking a food and nutrition class on “Where does my food come from?” I’ll tell them all about why we decided to start farming, what Community Supported Agriculture is all about, and give them some ideas on how to get started if they’re interested in agriculture as a career.

This is a lot of work, but there’s so much fun and excitement in farming, too. I planted a whole bunch more flats of seeds over the weekend (tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, leeks, onions, and more broccoli and cabbage) and as of last night there’s already broccoli, tomato and tomatillo sprouts up! Some day, if you’re all very unlucky, Mat will take a video of me doing my happy dance over the seedlings and post it on the blog! 😉
