Alisa and I have been working like two beavers getting the farm ready for our Spring Celebration. I must acknowledge the help of a veritable legion of neighbors and family who have come over to help. It's the country way, neighbors helping neighbors. I'm glad residents of Dinwiddie county still follow the old ways. Sometimes old-fashioned is the best way.
It's all coming together. The retail area behind the greenhouse will be clear. We have a really neat covered area up front. The roof is a geodesic dome designed and built by our friend Will "Papa" Byrd. There will be flowers, of course, lots of flowers, hanging baskets, giant Boston Ferns. The greenhouse is overflowing with little plants just waiting to get in the ground.
Our Emporium has lots of new products, too. We have a lot more healing herbs and essential oil blends. We are just about out of the joint relief blend. People buy it faster than we can make it. We also have a nice general purpose skin healing blend, and just make up an itch relief blend. Alisa is just finishing up a group of products for fibromyalgia.
The alpacas will be back for a visit. The chickens, turkeys, and guinea hens will be around. We actually loaned out one of the Tom turkeys to a friend of ours who lost most of his flock to dogs. Mr. Brown was completely dominated by our Bourbon Red Tom here. Now he has the hens all to himself. I suspect he won't want to come back- ever.
It's going to be a great day. Please come out, even if it is just to look and say "Hi." There is a lot of neat stuff going on here these days. Be a part.
