The three stages of cleaning!
Dirty
👉
Washed
👉
Painted
Every year we move all the buckets and pressure wash the floor to clean up all the algae and dirt. But every 3 years we put down new paint. It looks all brand new after a paint year; clean, bright, and ready to start a new season.

Had to replace all the pipe in our well today. We just did this back in June and now we had to do it all over again, also had to put in a new control box cuz our other one got fried! It’s been a shitty week here so far, but the good news is we are rolling into this season with all new and upgraded equipment. Unfortunately it’s not by our choice.
.
.
Just a quick list of all the stuff we had to replace so far this year:
-some grow buckets
-feed pump for lettuce house
-pressure washer
-tire on delivery van
-headlight on market van
-well pipes
-a water line
-perlite(growing medium)
-trellis twine spools
-other small misc parts
-floor paint

Don’t ever let someone tell you this isn’t the best life ever though!

Such a pain in the ass, but apparently it’s necessary! 30 pages of confusing questions that don’t really make sense to a diversified farm! But alas we spend a couple hours each year filling it out to the best of our ability!
