Below is the farm update from Pete Jr.


Farm News Update:

The past several weeks has been a flurry of activity. The main objective has been to get the many transplants out of the greenhouses and into their permanent home in the fields. Most transplants have a window of only a couple days when they are an ideal size for planting. Too small and they will not have roots necessary to survive. Too large and the plants can be elongated and quickly damaged by the sun and the wind. The weather has cooperated and we are starting to finish up the first big push of spring plantings.

As I write this the crews are finishing up the last of several thousand squash and cucumber transplants. I spent the last couple days direct seeding into the fields. The first seeding of beets, beans, carrots, popcorn and more are awaiting the imminent rain that is set to come in over the next couple days. The fields are full of small transplants that will certainly benefit from a rainy day or two! The spring greens are doing well and nearing maturity. The fields of lettuce and salad greens look perfect so far. (I can’t wait for some fresh salads and a good stir fry!)

Today’s tasks include finishing up the squash transplants, cultivate for weeds, hill the potatoes and cultivate some more. Our crew is doing a great job! I’m sure you will all be pleased in the coming weeks.
Thank you all for your continued support and please pass the word to friends, family, and neighbors. Only a few days until the 2017 season begins and we rely on all of you to help spread the word and keep our membership strong and our farm moving forward.

I will be sure to keep you updated on all the latest.

Enjoy your day!
Pete Jr.
