More farm preparation

The electrified poultry fence arrived today, but I can install it until the field gets plowed, which will now happen Wednesday (there was a weather delay). Then, we can get to barn-building, which missed its earlier window of opportunity due to rain. Also in there, I’ll spread compost out over the area marked for Spring vegetables and get the seeds in the ground. Busy, busy.

The Georgia Organics conference was wonderful. We saw many contacts we’d already made around here and established plenty more from around the state. We learned plenty and, more importantly, confirmed many things we’d already learned. I’m still digesting all the notes I took.

Before we left, I got around to making the farm’s web site more attractive, but it’s not done yet. I’ve been learning a new set of tools thar has really impressed me. Enough to eventually transfer this site to them. In the meantime I’m using it to build the other site from scratch. It will have its own weblog, too, to announce farm news to our customers. It’s hidden at the moment (though if you’re clever you’ll find it) as I integrate all the site’s pieces.
