Raw Milk, Wide Rows and Odds and Ends
We plan to start looking into what steps we have to take to start selling raw milk. We think there is a pretty good market here to tap into. It would compliment the eggs and grass fed broilers, make like a kind of "one stop shopping experience". I recently heard about a dairy north of here a ways that got a raw milk permit but I don't know any details. I'll keep you posted on what we find out.
I told you all a while back about doing some wide rows in the garden as an experiment. Well, the wide row plants seem to be doing better than the single row ones. I knew we would yield more crop with a wide row, but figured the plants would not look as good being crowded and all. The peas in the wide rows are much bigger than there single row counterparts. I think this has to do with them creating a shad canopy which keeps the roots cooler. The beans have come up and look real good, the tomatoes are starting to grow well now as well. The tomatoes are in the rotten hay layers that we made this spring. Has any one else done wide rows?
