New! Greenhouses completed with the help of so MANY GREAT FRIENDS!
This project was definitely an undertaking. The Oklahoma wind was at its best most days and so coordinating the best day, weather subject to change, with people's schedules proved to be a bit of a challenge. But after a delay by a day. Take two. We got the first top on. Lots of lessons learned on this one. Caught a snag, got a hole. Life goes on. The next one, you ask? Much better this time and we were all a little more savvy on how to handle the oversized saran wrap.
GREENHOUSE ONE: Take Two...And ACTION!

So many babies and it's not even spring. We are blessed with good mommas, healthy babies and happy endings. "Hell Bitch" as she is affectionately called (she's a good momma, maybe too good) gave us twins. The bull calf thrived from the get go, but the heifer was a little puny, so she needed some TLC. Now that she is able, she is back with momma and all are thriving!

Farm Challenges: Army Worms
So this happened...Army worms came and made quick work of eating everything green. The Critters were none too happy about it either. What was wonderful grazing pasture quickly turned to slim pickins'. However, the worms ate then left. We did not stand in their way.
Meanwhile, we took the opportunity to do some seed drilling and put in some nice mixed greens for the critters. We will see how it comes up. We will keep you posted. Pics to come.
Farm Beautification: Caterpillars! And Monarchs!
"Whatcha Cookin' Luis?" Looks like your using freshly dried 3J Farms OK Basil huh? Good choice Sir.
Meanwhile, Jennifer was busy making pepper jelly and sharing peppers with others to make pepper jelly. Boy it is tasty!
