Good Morning, I can't believe how many have come to our party. Not all have signed up, but that is okay, at least they came! The first day we had over 600 hits on our blog. The most ever!! Thank you for at coming and for those who signed up, thank you so much! Some of you graciously put us up on your blog and for that we are so thankful.! Thank you also for the orders that we received. We really appreciate them. It is part of the way we make a living! Thank you sooooooo much!
We asked on our post for the party, what would you like to see in the future on Prairie Flower Farm. Some wanted some garden hints............ so here is one.
We use old newspaper patterns to keep the moisture in the ground in our garden. It also keeps the light out, so the weeds can't grow. Great weed barrier! Start saving your newspapers! It works great. Make sure that you butt the papers right up to the plant. It is some work to get it all down, but I don't have to ever weed after it is all done! I like that!
After we lay the newspaper, we lay a layer of wheat straw on top of the the newspaper. It helps hold the paper down and provides as a light barrier. This also helps to cut down on the evaporation. When your garden has quite producing in the fall, work all this into the ground. This will build up your soil, because it will decompose throughout the winter months. We have done this for years. It saves so much time in the long run and then it improves your soil each year.
Well, I am off to work in my garden. Thank you so much for stopping by. What do you have going on in your life today?
Ooops for got to tell you. Remember we moved Momma Cow down in the pasture and she was going to have a baby? Well she is getting huge and her day is "Any Day Now!" We are on our way to check on her. Maybe I will have some exciting news. Also I have a hen that is hiding under the chicken coop and sitting on eggs. Now that is exciting news also! Just forgot to tell you this before I put up the post. Exciting days here.
If you haven't signed up for the party. . . . . . . please do so!!!
