The Greenhouse Has Exploded

While taking a walk through the greenhouse, Zina got some photos of all the progress.  It appears the damage from the initial chill is a memory.  According to the forecast, summer is set to arrive this week with daily temps around 90.  East of Steamboat Springs got 2 feet of snow this weekend.  We’d attribute that to global warming but we all know that’s a myth.  After all it’s snow right?  5 years.  Harvard Professor says we have 5 years to fix it.  Never happen.  Plant til you can’t.

Next up in the farm evolution is a huge Permaculture development of a “food forest”.  It will involve ponds and swales, pollinator attractors and habitat, trees, vines, bushes and ground cover.  We will be making lots of vermicompost, utilizing hugelkultur techniques and making furnaces to create bio-char for amendments. It will be the biggest soil building project I’ve ever tried and easily as big a job as the initial farm infrastructure was to build.  Stay tuned!

    An even bigger project?! I will stay tuned. I suppose in a climate like yours, there is reason to not install fruit trees and vines and such in winter. There are a few items here that should go into the ground, but they will wait until winter because it is just easier that way.
