February Update

The false spring has brought the gardeners out; seems like a little sun and warm wind gets everyone itchy to plant. Still too early, so some of the guys are going to begin starting plants indoors. They should be ready to go in the ground when the temperature in the soil is right. We plan on tightening up the rows this year which will increase the yield, and with the demand going up we are going to plant more.

We helped a few more of our veterans with furniture and furnishings, and even did a few pick up and deliveries. If you have extra furniture, linens, dishes, etc. that a family could use feel free to contact us – we can put it to good use. The only thing we ask is that we want items in good to excellent condition. Remember who it’s for, and what they deserve.

Good news, our veteran in South Carolina is now on track with the local V.A. in getting the help he needs coping with the bouts of depression. Working through other agencies is what we do to help veterans throughout the country, this is the key to getting our veterans and service members the help they need.

We have set the date for this year’s poker run, we look forward to having you ride along.

With the days getting longer the animals are out longer and much more active.The activity will pick up on the weekends, so bring the kids and stop by and say Hi – we look forward to seeing you on the farm!

Thank you goes out to Steve Olson Printing and Design for all their hard work in printing our flyers and business cards. Steve’s expertise in this field has been greatly appreciated. Thanks again Steve.
