It was an absolutely heartbreaking afternoon here at the farm. .
While I was outside harvesting dahlias in broad daylight, a coyote found my flock of hens. Of my 16 ladies..it looks like just 6 hens made it through the day (and only because I scared the coyote mid-attack) All of my original ladies that were still thriving...gone..
The coyote got away (for now) but the hens that remain are locked up tight and, as frightened as they are, are safe..
This by far is my least favourite part of living on a farm. It’s given me a much tougher skin but I won’t lie - it never gets easier 💔
#DYK? Many small and mid-sized farmers lack the capacity to access retail and commercial markets on their own. Food hubs offer a solution by providing aggregation, distribution, and marketing local food for farmers. According to the USDA, "food hubs make it possible for many producers to gain entry into new larger-volume markets that boost their income and provide them with opportunities for scaling up production." By choosing to get healthy food from 4P, you are helping and strengthening local food systems. 🌿

9.23.18 // Myoga or "Japanese Ginger" my current plant obsession ✨ unlike the ginger root we all know and love, this type of ginger is quite different... you don't eat the root of myoga, but you eat the flower buds (pictured in image one) and the flowers, the flower buds push their way up through the soil twice a year. Their flavor is ginger-like, but slightly different. I have been eating it daily and can't wait until my lil myoga patch grows and provides me with all the myoga I could care to eat 👅 a million thank you's to my friend Misae for sharing this most amazing plant with me.
