Magnolia Grove Farms has recently welcomed a new addition to the family, a foal named Saleen. Saleen is a beautiful, spunky foal who has already captured the hearts of everyone on the farm. She is full of life and energy, always running and playing in the fields. Saleen's mother, Porscha, is doing great and taking excellent care of her new foal. The birth of Saleen has brought a lot of excitement and joy to the farm, and everyone is looking forward to watching her grow and thrive.
Saleen has a personality that matches her spunky and cheeky nature. She is curious and always exploring her surroundings, often getting into mischief. However, she is also incredibly sweet and loves to be around people. Saleen has already formed a close bond with the staff on the farm, and they have enjoyed watching her grow and develop. She is a beautiful addition to the farm and has brought a lot of happiness to everyone who meets her.
In addition to the arrival of Saleen, the farm is also eagerly anticipating the arrival of another foal. Izzy, another of the farm's mares, is set to give birth soon to a colt. The staff on the farm is keeping a close eye on Izzy and ensuring that she is healthy and comfortable as she prepares to give birth. The farm is buzzing with excitement as they await the arrival of the new foal. With the birth of Saleen and the anticipation of Izzy's foal, it is an exciting time for Magnolia Grove Farms.
Our garden is thriving with various vegetables such as squash, cucumbers, peas, lettuce, and radishes. We are excited to have a variety of produce available in the near future. The timing of planting cool-season crops like peas, lettuce, and radishes is crucial to their success. As per our research, mid-May is a good time for cool weather crops like spinach, peas, lettuce, onions, potatoes, and broccoli-family plants. The growing season for these crops is around 155 days, which is important to keep in mind when selecting the crops. We look forward to enjoying our garden's fresh produce and sharing it with our community.
