A box of observations about sustainable hobby farming, microbiology, recipes, and odd projects

Who would have thought hail could demolish tiny baby tomato plants....? I just never thought about it before. Some had so many leaves severed I couldn't even find the little sproutlings. I hope they still have some for sale at the garden store.
The beets suffered but I'm eating 'em this weekend, anyway. Just maybe not the leaves.
The swiss chard and spinach are trying to recover.
The artichoke plant looks pretty devastated. It HAD tons of long, huge leaves. Sniff.
AND I have poison ivy all over the right side of my face. Lovely weekend coming up.
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
