Hi every one sorry i have not written in a while. Winter is a busy time for use as i work 7 days a week. We have been playing with some plant despite the cold and i have managed to get some flowers out of my 3 year old jalapeno and this years bonsai habanero.
We have also purchase a piece o land in Coquille! It is not much but it will give us a place to grow more perennial plants that we couldn’t before. We have setup a Facebook page for it so you can tack our progress if you are into that kind of thing. https://www.facebook.com/kingdomoflyria We have big plans here and hope to have a good part of it cleared this year and maybe have a few things planted and growing there. one of the things we hope to do there s start a Camellia sinensis plantation so we can offer our own blends of green, oolong, and black teas. Don’t put your orders in yet thou it will be two or three years before there produce. We have had some guests there but not a lot of time to play as i am working al the time and the rest of the time it is raining. Julia and i did get a bit cleared and a fire table erected out of some of the old broken concrete was dumped there buy the previous owners. More pics of that when i get time.
i have been working split shifts and Julia has been working noon to 5 so i have tried to get the farm ready to gear up for summer buy turning beds and fertilized with rabbit manure but it is slow going as the ground it still soft and wet from all of the rain we have had here in the last few weeks. We have cut our planting plans down from what we had last year as some things just don’t do well here. But dont fret we are hoping to add some new things to the list.
As of next month we will be looking for water to put our boat the Delyrius back in the water for good. The trailer she is on has seen its last winter and will be headed to the scrap yard. We would prefer to put here in the lake and sail at the Coos Bay yacht club but we will not be able to take her back out of the water until we get a new trailer and that could be a year or two. The yacht club only allows boats on the docks in the summer time so we will put her in Bandon and have to up our game and try her out on the deep blue.
Thats about it so i guess it is time to put together some pictures from winter and Christmas and post an album.
