THIS WEEK’S SUBSCRIBER MENU:
• last of the Spring Onions
• Pepper Cress
Mike spent all of Monday and most of Tuesday on the tractor, trying to make up for lost time. Plowing, disking, getting ready for planting. Then Wednesday it poured again. The weekend is looking really good—even sunny! We’re getting our ducks in a row so that we can start planting early Saturday and not stop until it either rains again, or we finish, whichever comes first.
I’ve spent long hours in my “office”, or planting room. I stand in there and plant flats of transplants. Yesterday I planted 75 flats of fall brassicas—cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage—it’s more interesting than that, as there are many varieties of each. However, the greenhouse is getting full, with lots of little plants getting crowded in their flats. They want to go outside and flourish!
The crops that we planted weeks ago are growing so slowly. We’re hoping to have some good leafy greens for our first week of summer next week, but it may not be as exciting as the second week. Hopefully everyone will be forgiving. The thing to remember is that there are lots of different things planted, and the harvest will build every week.
This is the last week of our Spring Season/Winter Makeup. If you are finished for now, we hope you have a wonderful summer, whatever it brings. If you are continuing on into summer with us, or are just joining us now, we will look forward to seeing you soon!
