Squirrels

The smell of summer makes me think of squirrels…

That summer smell is in the air and it's making me think about putting up as much food for the winter as possible. This includes haying as much of our land and native pastures as possible to ensure we have enough winter feed for our livestock. Normally I have a huge garden with hundreds of hills of potatoes and countless vegetables, but since I have been living at our new facilities east of Calgary I am somewhat garden-less and feeling a little lost. Luckily Bryce decided to plant one here – after working in my monster garden on TK Ranch for a couple of summers he decided to start realizing his permaculture dream and he is ambitious. He put up a hoop house and filled it with tomato plants, cucumbers and peppers. He also planted a few rows of vegetables. Everything is going well, except we have a small issue with gophers who like to eat his strawberries and jalepeno peppers! I do have a resident fox and this morning there was a Great Horned Owl sitting on a fence next to his garden, so they are trying to help. Such are the realities of gardening :). We are just starting to plan our bulk beef and pork offering for the fall and we'll have lots in stock for you to fill your freezers with. Last week we did a yield test on our beef and discovered that we needed to change things up a bit. The packages are now bigger than before and the price reflects this, but they are definitely worth the investment!
