Schoolhouse Farmers still can't resist growing!
This "Fat Tuesday" a gift Amaryllis (a plant also known as the Belladonna Lily or naked ladies) we received and planted on Christmas finally rewarded the winter bound Schoolhouse Farmers with a truly beautiful display of colorful delicate blooms. This stark contrast to what seems omnipresent grey weather helped to raise the spirit and urged us back to the seed catalogs to continue the mad hunt for our next fabulous season of growth.
We also have a couple of good size pots planted with Swiss Chard! If we can get a little more sunshine and a hint of warmth we believe they will kick in and we will back into eating our own homegrown. The bored farmer becomes restless and impatient but these small treasures help us to endure until our fingers can once more be married to the soil soon very soon!
