Back on 29th April, the Feast of St. Catherine of Siena, Brian and our son William began bending hoops from which to build a long-awaited production greenhouse. A little over a week ago, our oldest son, Jack spent two days here building the end walls and helping his Pa and brother cover it. With the generous donation of plant tables made by our long-time friends and fellow farmers, we now have the means to nurse cuttings and small plants, mainly lavenders and other herbs for medicine, cooking, and dyes.
It isn’t large enough for growing off seeds and seedlings, we will still need to hire that out. We are blessed to have that service available from another farm not too far from here. This small production greenhouse is a significant step forward for us and we are grateful for this great blessing!
