News for the Farm: Happy first week of spring! We’ve moved from wishful thinking to no time for thinking. Working the ground and planting have become our top spring priorities. Warm weather and green does not mean we suddenly have summer vegetables to give out, but it does mean we have some of the first of those planted in greenhouses and that everything else is growing at a much faster rate. We’ve prepped and planted in several of our fields – around a zillion (no kidding!) feet of onions and hundreds of feet of kale and flowers and lettuce and beets. We moved the big high tunnel from its winter spot covering spinach, kale, lettuce, and beets west to its summer location. Those hardy plants will live happily in current outdoor conditions, and the high tunnel can begin warming the soil to more hospitable temperatures for raspberries, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant oh my!
