News from  the farm

Jan 23 rd

What a rain we had last night! Everyone's pond seems to be full and we have made progress on the water deficit from last summers drought.

It is usually at this time of year that the field crops melt in the field from the cold and the rains. This morning they looked fine and we have been getting enough wind and sun in between rains, so the field crops have continued on. We still have turnip greens, Chinese cabbage, diakon radishes, arugula, asian greens still in the field, green onions have made a come back this week and look good.

A couple of weeks ago we have planted 2 high tunnels with early crops and they are up and look good the swiss chard hasn't made a good stand so far, but the beets, mustard, lettuce mix, spinach, kale, radishes, onions, turnips, bok choy, and arugula have.

We will be getting our spring fields ready soon. The winter has just zoomed by so fast, and the market season will be upon us quickly. We are planning on planting about another 1/2 acre more this year and we are looking for help. So if you know of a young person who would like a summer job let us know.
