Wanted to share a bright musing for farming from today’s Earth Day…

¿Is it possible… conceivable… that farmy day at ourHouse happens after a flash flood warning and rain postpones it…? Yeaaahhh! Yes, yes, and Yay! As was overheard in Sunset… ¡Hao mei! ¡Hao mei! …Flowers of trees, charcoal, sunshine and doggies and fire, chickens, 'n…

We’re going to keep steady, and reconvene: 27APRIL will be the first day we ask you to take part again in FarmyDay.  ¿What would you like to participate with in the realms of a tiny farm in Flatbush? Usingg one of the most dangerous tools safely, composting, etc.? Or ¿maybe you can show us something too!? Like New York so nice…

This Sat, (¡uh-huh!) we’re gonna kick off Farmy, every 2nd and 4th Saturday ’til November. Come thru this Saturday 9am-2pm — there will be a veg/An BBQ (maybe something for us meateaters) for lunch!

Much has happened this past year:
We got 10 new chickens, some that lay *BLUE* eggs and have mustaches so all-in-all fit in in BK these days. Yet little do ppl know they are direct descendants of the Mapuche area. We'll have some of their eggs to crack on burgers or egg-y dishes! 🍳 we might finish their chicken castle or make them an castle wall.

we decided to take a step back from beekeeping as after a successful 1st year, our bees didn't overwinter their 2nd winter. ask xtian all about it and what he is doing about it so we can get better at stewarding these lovelies. join us this Saturday as we attempt to extract the honey from 5 supers (aka A LOT!) and maybe go home with tasty hyper local honey. 😋 🍯

Currently, we are amending the plots from squashmania last year and have started seedlings and some greens + herbs in soil. Saturday, we'll hopefully start the rigging of the rainwater catchment system and the solar-powered irrigation.

Finally, we continue to host our neighborhood CSA this season as last season was great. Early sign-ups have opened so check it out. We get all the veggie leftovers and have been distro-ing to our ppl--please keep us in mind for any projects of yours that may need fresh veggies weekly (Wednesdays)! Give us some notice tho coz we need to coordinate with block grandmas.

We filmed an impromptu fun music video last year that we will screen and would love your opinion on deck dreams for this summer!

Feel free to bring your compost to come rot!

Hope to see you here and there.
