Spring has sprung and we are busy planting the early crops in the fields! So far, we have planted onions, peas, turnips, kohlrabi, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage. By the end of the week we should be adding collards, chard, beets, and spinach to the mix! And our garlic, which was planted in October 2017, is looking fantastic. Of the 1800 cloves we planted, it looks like less than 15 didn't grow!
Next week, we take a small break from planting and spend it moving caterpillar tunnels and laying tarps in preparation for all the planting of warm season crops in the last two week of May. For now, the tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, and more wait in the greenhouse for the weather to settle and warm up. And later this week all the curcubits (melons, cucumbers, winter squash, and summer squash) will be seeded in the greenhouse.
Share members can expect a welcome letter emailed by the end of May with all the details of the season. In the meantime, we are on track to have our first pickup on the week of June 18th. We look forward to sharing the future bounty with our members!
