Plum Granny Farm Weekly Update -- Happy Garlic Holidays!

Posted 12/19/2014 8:10am by Cheryl Ferguson.

Hello Farm Friends!  Happy Friday!

Scurrying around to get everything done before the Big Day -- elves?  Well sort of!  It's the Plum Granny Farm crew scurrying to get the garlic in the ground this week!  As of yesterday, we had close to 24,000 cloves planted for bulb and fresh garlic.  Today we're on a push to get the spring garlic in the ground.  It's got to get in there today because of the forecast rain for next week.  Mud + garlic = Yuck

Another farm activity this week has been getting some foundations repaired on a couple of buildings.  We found a really good mason and had him do some work for us.  Time has taken its toll on the Yam Barn & Tobacco Barn foundations so we had them shored up and put in new footings and waterproofing.  We also built out the foundation of the Corral Building that my brother built about 20 years ago -- we hope to get a roof on it before long.  Here's Ray showing the work that was done on the Yam Barn.  More pictures later...

This will be our last edition for the year -- we're taking a few days off to relax over the Holidays.  Thank you for supporting our farm and for sharing what we are doing here by reading our newsletter.  We really appreciate your words of support and encouragement as well as your business! And most of all, we are most grateful for your friendship and trust.

Here's wishing you all the most wonderful Holiday Season ever!  Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Joyous Solstice and all good wishes for a Happy & Healthy New Year!! 

Until 2015,

Cheryl & Ray
