Keep updated on all that is happening around Thiessen Farms!



I’m weary and I hurt all over.

It must be spring!

After the winter – a most enjoyable winter, with little physical work (though plenty of mental exercise) and a good share of relaxation – our bodies take some time adjusting to being active again. We fall into bed tired at an early hour and rise in the morning stiff & sore. (Age could have something to do with it as well?)

But it doesn’t take long to adapt and get back in the swing of things!

Amy spends a lot of time in the greenhouse transplanting – tomatoes, eggplant, peppers …
The blackberries have been mulched.
Preparing the ground to plant snow peas.


Around the farm this week …

The garlic is up and growing.
The field where we grew vegetables last year has been seeded down to a cover crop of oats & peas.
Burning the brush pile.

Warm spring weather is best enjoyed cruising with the top down …

… or just relaxing in the sunshine!
