Plum Granny Farm Weekly Update for December 14 -- It Was a Wonderland of Snow!

Posted 12/12/2018 9:49am by Cheryl.

 

Hello Farm Friends!  Happy Friday!  Happy December!

What a beautiful Autumn snow!  It's hard to believe that it's still Fall when you have 15 inches of snow on the ground -- but it's true.  The Winter Solstice is still a week away!

The snow was gorgeous -- creating beautiful scenes across the farm.  Have a look around:

   

Even a few beautiful surprises.  Such a fragile thing as a flower can be amazingly resilient.

The good news is that even with such an incredible load from heavy, wet snow, our greenhouse and high tunnels came through just fine.  In the picture on the right, snow was piled up more than 5 feet on the side of the greenhouse and had covered the inflation fan (not good).  But Ray was able to clear it and make sure that the structure wasn't impacted.

 

It was good to have several days notice before the storm.  It gave us a chance to get ready.  No matter what the weather, we still have hungry mouths to feed.  We loaded up Mama Meow with freshly cut grasses (from areas that we weren't able to hay) as well as the cabbage and kale plants that we pulled out while clearing our Flat Shoals field.  Both seemed to be pretty good selections for our hooved friends.

   

Unfortunately the pure, clean snow has now turned to slush and even more mud... Yuck.

10, 9, 8, 7, .... The Holiday Countdown Continues!

Although Hanukkah has ended, we are just TEN days away from Christmas!  Do you need a few more gifts to complete your shopping list?  We would love to help!  We've just loaded up our website with our tasty jams, delicious garlic and ginger powders and lavender sachets and more!

 

We'll even take care of shipping your gifts to friends and family!

That does it for this week's news.  We had a great time at TubaChristmas and Mitchell's Nursery and Greenhouse's National Poinsettia Open House a couple of weeks ago.  And if you need more decorations or gifts, Jim and Judy Mitchell still have a lot of beautiful poinsettias left -- so go check them out!

Until next week,

Cheryl & Ray
