The plan is we'll start lessons up again on Monday next week although may do a few on Friday of this week. I've already had few experienced riders that often volunteer here go on a couple rides to make sure the horses were ready to go. They tried out the new trail today with three horses and all went well; although we know the trail will need some holes filled in and other help. The volunteer riders were especially helpful today as they also helped me thin the carrots and beets. 7 rows of carrots each 200 feet long..... that's a lot of carrots. Looks like we'll have a great crop if we get some rain! Beets don't look quite as nice, but there will be a good crop of them also. I also hilled the potatoes so the garden is looking pretty good just now. Hilling the potatoes means to build up the soil around each plant to eliminate weeds plus give more room for the spuds to develop. "New" potatoes only grow above where the original seedling was placed; so they need to be planted deep and mounding the soil up around each plant keeps the top edibles from getting scalded by the sun.
I'm hoping to have the schedule worked out and a good covid-19 preventative plan in place over the next couple days.
