The last year or so is kind of a blur?? To say the least life got a little "out of control" with ailing neighbors in need of great help, a chicken and turkey season that took over our lives, computer after computer crash and so much more, but now onto the positive!! Here at Moonstruck we are enjoying turning things upside down, but we are not doing a lot of it on our own anymore. Thanks to my "Moonstruck Angel" things are looking amazing around here!! Yes, I have an employee, but I hate calling him that because he is so much more than that! So from hereon he will be referred to as the Moonstruck Angel. Both greenhouses are cleared, planted and ready to go. The 20x100 is full of salad mix and spinach and more and the 20 x40 is at about 90% completion of being converted to a "berry house". We have strawberries and blueberries in there. We had a lot of time thanks to my Moonstruck Angel to sit back and observe and absorb all the lessons I have learned over the last five years, and even though our summers hit the 100s we are still a very cold season microclimate here at Moonstruck, and the great news is so far the BERRIES love it!! So between the 300 fruit trees we put in and the expansion of berries we are doing this year you will be seeing a lot more fruit come from Moonstruck. We have a 20 x 100 field that gets hit horribly with the wind in the Spring and Summer and has never done very well so we are going to run a test on it this year with a small row cover of raspberries and if the results are stupendous we will convert the entire field to raspberries!! As always thank you all for your support through the years. Moonstruck signing off....but just for a little while.
