Yesterday afternoon we pulled up what was left of the garden and took it to Lazy J Tree Farm. It’s $5 a truck load and they use it for compost. I explored around and above is the pond there and a part of the tree farm.
I got the following from Sequim This Week:
“In 1955, Steve Johnson’s parents, George and Eloise Johnson, bought 20 acres and started a berry farm on Gehrke Road in the Agnew area.
In 1960, the family changed the focus of the farm from berries to Christmas trees and Lazy J Tree Farm was born.
Steve took over management of the farm at age 16 after the death of his father, and has built Lazy J Tree Farm into the diversified 85-acre operation it is today.
While the primary enterprise on this farm remains Christmas trees, the farm also features a certified organic orchard of various apple, pear and Asian pear varieties.
Steve added a composting operation to the farm, which receives yard waste and other organic materials, and sells finished organic compost.
Lazy J also has an organic vegetable operation, which is managed by Lela Copeland and Mike Gwaltney.
The farm’s gift shop sells locally crafted products including honey, fresh cider, syrups, jams, jellies and organic apples, pears, Asian pears, garlic, potatoes and numerous other organic vegetables.”
