We continue to harvest every morning for the shop, offering beautiful & tasty veggies to neighbors & friends.
We weeded the center three short beds at the Hei, shuffled them, put rye straw from our farm onto the beds & transplanted more strawberries from the long raised beds. More & more of the Hei will be turned into perennial, lower maintenance plants so that we can focus more on the high maintenance crops near home.
We spread a mix of compost, horse manure, phacelia, field peas, & rye onto the previous rye field at Hei to help decompose the remaining roots, cover the soil, & have a living cover for fall/winter.
We shuffled in between the leek & carrots a at Hei.
We cleared the left side & right side of closed tunnel of all end-of-life crops & gave it to the chickens, leaving the peppers, tomatoes, melons, & watermelons to harvest from for the coming weeks.
We cut leftover wood into pieces & put them into boxes, stored for our cold winters.
We welded a broken wheelbarrow back to functionality with the help of our technical guys. Thanks Alex & Antonio!
With the renovation of the kitchen & bathroom in little plukrijp house, we have set it to be the new center of activity in Plukrijp. We now spend our time there eating, planning, talking, listening to & playing music, & generally enjoying being together. Thanks everyone for helping set up such a cozy new atmosphere!
We lit the sauna & warmed up after a week (or three?) of cold & rainy weather.
Our newest friends Istvan & Suzanna, have arrived from Hungary & have helped us around the farm with outdated electrical systems, teaching us how to solder, introducing us to local Hungarian food, & generally giving great life advice & conversation. Thanks for your presence!
We set up an easier watering system for washing the veggies that come to the little shop in the morning.
