Lots of planting and starting field work

Posted on by Tim Livingstone

After days (and nights) finishing up our accounting Kirsten is enjoying one of her first days out in the greenhouse doing transplanting.  She and Bruce are planting ground cherries, probably Bruce's favorite along with carrots.  

If any of our customers have thoughts about how to streamline our accounting process or even would like to help us with it for an exchange of vegetables, let us know :-).

We have to be very careful not to cultivate the soil when it is too wet or the soil structure will be damaged and we will have problems all year long.  After a careful check last night we were able to do our first field cultivation on our driest fields.  It is so much fun to work the soil, smell the earthy smell, and see the resulting smooth mellow texture.
