I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss this time of year out on the farm. It was literally living the dream for a decade on Scarlet Fire Farms and I wouldn’t trade a second of it. I question my decisions all the time. Growth is full of difficult paths to navigate, uncertainty and second guesses. If that’s the case I must be doing something right. I definitely feel blessed for so many reasons! Last season 2017 was such a fun summer with @dragonslieutenant @ancientdank @the_worlds_last_hope🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳🌳 Trenchtown 2017!!! A field of Scarlet Fire! Thanks @blacklabelimages for catching all these special moments. I ate a lot of gummies tonight 🤤 #sungrown#knf#blacklabelimages#scarletfirefarms#dragonwithmatches

We have been canning a massive amount of tomatoes, about 1lb a week. Kale being stripped and frozen, cover crop sown, lots of preparation for next year happening and soon to be garlic going down in the fifth row. We will also be widening the rows to three feet. This should have been done initially but my thought process was different than what it is now and I’m going to be nixing the borders of the rows except for maybe the outside to keep somewhat of a barrier. We have been reaching out to a few restaurants here and here to drum up interest in the kale and herbs we have but no luck quiet yet! #marketgarden#garden#farm#farmlife#cedarsprings#michigan#knf#jadam#organic#tomatoes#herbs#sunflower
Check out the amazing-ness of the vinegar-ness #knf I drink it probably 5 times a week in my water. About 1-2 teaspoons and splash it in the a cup of water. Feel the en-vinegar-ation !!! I really do feel immediately charged up as I’m drinking the glass down. I can only imagine plants feel the same way and man has it proven itself in this years plant health. As goes for my personal health too !
Started a few piles of IMO3 four days ago. These photos show the massive fungal network that has grown through most of the piles. This run was 6 piles, 3 of rolled oats and 3 of barley. Each pile had different water amounts added. This is the best way to learn a whole lot real fast. Don’t forget to document everything. Water amounts, starting material, temps, how you’re your pile is and how often you flipped the pile, these are a few of the notable items. The more data the better. When I have completed the piles I will post some final data results that might be helpful. #fungalnetworking#imo3#imo#naturalfarming#indeginous#soilhealth#knf#knftw#moneytreefarms#pnwcannabis
