Blooms on the Farm

Although they're not (all) edible, we love seeing the flowers in bloom! God gave us some plants for food, while others to admire their beauty. There is a certain aesthetic to a field of wild flowers. They are the Lord's promise of new growth, and a reminder to stop and "smell the roses" once in a while. We also have some peonies planted, bleeding hearts, petunias, and a couple surprise sunflowers coming up in the garden! The pollinators will be very happy this year.

Garden and Greenhouse Progress

We have a lot of new plants coming up in our garden and greenhouse! We have spent a lot of time working on planting, weeding, broadforking, scything, and mulching, and our hard work is all paying off! We owe it all to our Lord.  Everything is growing by His will, and when good things happen, we know it's because of Him. God gives us the rain and sunshine to help the plants grow, and even the strength in our bodies to be able to work the soil.


Today was the perfect day for planting, so that's what we did! The peas and beets are in the ground, and we pulled up a lot of weeds and found tons of dandelions. Those will be great for making tea and putting in salads. We used the broadfork to loosen the soil and added some rich compost. There are chives and garlic already coming up in the garden that returned from a previous year. We also have three trays of seedlings started indoors. So far we have broccoli, kale, sweet peppers, basil, jalapenos, three different kinds of cabbage, and more!

Farm Fresh Eggs and Seedlings

The chickens are back in full swing laying mode, and the farm is getting over a dozen eggs a day now. We also have a goose who is brooding on a couple eggs and we are hopeful for some baby goslings. The male goose is very vigilant and runs to her side to keep watch when anyone gets too close. God built animals with good instincts and it's amazing to see how they care for each other!

Winter Projects and Katahdin Sheep

The days are finally getting longer at Coram Deo farm. After a freezing cold day last Tuesday, the sunshine came out on Wednesday (03/03/2021) and we were able to do a little bit of trimming on the apple trees. We also adjusted the solar panels to get the most out of the sunlight this spring season. These panels are adjusted based on the angle of the sun throughout the year.
