I am in no way a large scale farmer, but my set-up is enough that I recognize the seasons and the activities and chores that come with each one. What farm chores do I do this time of year you may ask? I still plant winter vegetables, just not as many as in the summer. I like to plant plenty of greens because they can be shared with my rabbits and chickens. I clean out all of the garden beds, including weeds and the veggie plants themselves. I top all of my beds with manure so it can break down over the winter and regenerate my soil (I'm behind in this chore so I really need to get it done!). I then top all of my beds with wood mulch (Once again, behind!). In January I start to think about seed propagation and the varieties I want to grow in the new year. In most years, a seed order is placed. I plan the layout of each bed, rotating veggies from the year before to other beds to help control soil diseases. Any maintenance that needs to be done around the farm is completed. And, if I have a large project planned, it gets done this time of year as well. My ultimate goal is to prep and get everything ready for the spring and summer, but most importantly, it's to relax a little.
Nature takes this time to renew itself; we should do the same.
