Good afternoon (from Carissa)!
Hopefully everyone is having a good beginning to 2018. The New Year came in with a cold front and made farming so much more difficult on farmers, their crops and their livestock. As I look out the window at the gloomy, cold day, I long for Spring! There is a bright side though! Because of the milder winters we have had the past few years, insects have continued to be a problem for gardens. Hopefully with the really cold temps that we have had this past week, we will see a decrease in damaging insects in spring and summer! Natural pest control at its best! :) There are so many benefits to cold weather! Check back next week for another.
No lettuce from Rattle’s Garden this week. The cold weather stifled its growth last week and should recover next week.
Chickens are extremely fickle, but are far more intelligent than people give them credit for. And, they are such wonderful garden helpers!!! Egg laying in the winter is one area that chickens are very fickle. VERY cold weather will slow down laying because more of the chickens’ bodily resources have to go into keeping her warm rather than to producing eggs. Another reason for slow laying, even if the winter weather is warm, is daylight. If there is not enough light, some breeds may slow down laying in the wintertime. One thing’s for sure, they are doing their best!!! :)
Rutabagas coming soon!
