Busy Spring Season

Posted on by Tim Livingstone

We have seen a surge in sign ups since the last post!  We'd like to thank all the many customers who have signed up - both those returning and the new ones.  In light of this we plan to keep our original target of 300 summer box customers.  We are almost half way to this goal.

Swiss Chard is coming up well on the right.  Starting it early like this gives us greens earlier in the summer and allows us to plant it on mulch greatly reducing the weed growth.

 

Our greenhouse is filling up quickly and plants are looking great.  Tomatoes are planted up into 4" pots and many of the cabbage, Brussels sprouts, Broccoli and Cauliflower are seeded for the season.  Onions, Shallots and Leeks are doing well and even celery root is looking it's best ever.

 

There are signs of spring outside too.  Though there is mud and water everywhere, we hope new life and green growth are just around the corner. 

The cows know where to go to find a dry warm spot in the sun.

Pigs know where to go too - at least someone enjoys the mud!
