What’s Happening on the Farm this Week?
This week brought more planting with it. Lettuce, beets, radish, and carrots are all going in this week with plans for also planting potatoes and corn. More transplants of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers also went in. Our first succession of tomatoes are fruiting. Garlic, leeks, and onions are looking great. Broccoli, turnips, peas and green beans are coming soon!
With windy conditions last week, our tarp blew over the newly transplanted melons. Thankfully, most all survived and are growing well. To prepare for in case of windy conditions again, we have reinforced the tarp to the ground, making sure that it won’t blow over the plants again.
Thank you for your patience as we work through a late spring. We are catching up with the nice weather but some items will be later than we planned.
