The Organic Greenhouse was totally destroyed

The good news is that all the family and extended family are fine. Elizabeth’s, Caitrin’s, and our homes are okay, undamaged.  All of the critters (morgan horses, dogs, cats, and poultry) survived.  The tornado came through our valley and across our farm.

Caitrin’s neighborhood sustained major damage.

Our neighbor, lost her entire roof.  Our hearts go out to her and her family.

Some of our other neighbors lost parts of their homes, barns, etc. 

We are grateful to everyone who has helped with the clean-up, and repairs…

More pictures to follow – will post some pictures of the treeline, fencing, etc damage on the www.SleipnirMorganHorseFarm.com website>>> Georgia’s Morgan Horse blog.

This is a quick post. More to follow.
As far as we know, all our friends and family have survived the storms/tornados. No one has power. All of our immediate family and critters are ok.
Most of our builldings had little damage. Some fencing was damaged, but the horses are all ok.
Friends in Bradley County lost all their farm buildings, but family and home are alright. Other friends had little damage.
Friends in McMinn County are flooded in; but they, home, and critters are all ok.
Britta is working in Arizona, and smoke is in the air from fires…but she is well.
We will update you with amusing stories, later…for instance Foxy and CL’s very heavy dog box stories…but for now…love and hugs to all our family and many friends…and prayers for all our friends, neighbors and customers…and the greater community of the world.
Hugs to all.
The Denman, McGee and Bayard Families

In the flower beds.

Depending on exposure, daffodils are either just up, or blooming gloriously.

No matter where they are planted, their faces turn to the South.

Sometimes, you can find leftover daffodil bulbs sitting in the clearance section of garden shops and discount stores. If the bulbs are still firm, it is possible to plant them and still get some springtime blooms.

If you find, or have, leftover tulip bulbs, they need to be exposed to cold, either in a cold garage, or the refrigerator, prior to planting.

When you walk through your garden and view the clumps of flowering bulbs, mark any clumps that need to be divided after blooming. A small stick or piece of old tableware, like a knife or fork, looks decorative, and reminds you where to lift and divide clumps of bulbs after blooming.

Pansies and snapdragons will benefit from fertilizing with a light feeding of liquid fertilizer, such as fish fertilizer every couple weeks.

Violet flowers and snapdragon blooms can be picked and added to fruit salads, or spring dinner salads for bursts of colors. Make sure that they have not been touched by inorganic chemical lawn and garden fertilizers.  Pansies are in the violet family, but the big hybrid flowers are more beautiful in the garden than tasty in your meals.

If you didn’t get a sprinkling of hardy annual seeds spread out last autumn, it is not too late to do it this month. Seeds like calendula, cleome (spider plants), and bachelor buttons will be fine sprinkled in to a flower bed now, and will produce a floral display later in the spring and summer.
