The last two days have been incredibly long ones! Yesterday, I helped to put on a workshop on soil and irrigation management for vegetable production. The workshop was at Jim Muck's farm in Wheatland - Farmer Jim's Produce grows vegetables for farmers' markets and for his own CSA. It was a great day - lots of new and existing growers and lots of great information. Check out my youtube channel for videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/flyingmulefarm?feature=mhum I'll keep adding more!
Today, I hauled sheep and a steer to Wolfpack Meats in Reno. When I left Grass Valley, Caltrans reported chain controls over I-80, so I ended up driving to Oroville and up Highway 70. What should have been a five-hour round trip turned into a nine-hour drive. We have lots of customers who want our sheep sausage before Christmas, so I felt obligated to get to Reno today. While Wolfpack does a great job for us, I do wish we had an option closer to home!
