Open House Saturday May 10, 10 am to 4 pm

Farm Events Miscellaneous

Time is flying by in the garden!  Seems like not so long ago we were asking the snow to go away, and now we are asking for rain!  We’ve got onions, leeks, kale, swiss chard, carrots, beets, lettuces, radishes and greens planted into the garden now.  Things are starting to look green; even the asparagus are poking their heads up!  So we decided we’d better cultivate them along with the raspberries and rhubarb.  Here is a picture of our new crop of interns weeding away in this patch while Jess and Lenny pull the single row cultivator and Kyle steers it.

We’ve also finished transplanting all the lettuces into the high tunnel – things are growing nicely in there.  Hopefully we will have some pak choy for sale on Saturday at the Open House!  As well as a few potatoes and onions and maybe more…

We also had our first CRAFT Day of 2014 – we went to visit Tony at Wheelbarrow Farm.  Our interns got to meet a few other interns from different farms in the area, and learn about greenhouse production.  We especially liked meeting their Olde English Black pigs which he has been using to help clear the garden beds of roots!

We can’t wait to see you this Saturday, May 10 from 10 am until 4 pm!  Bring some friends along – we’re sure they’ll enjoy a day in the sun learning all about our way of gardening, and visiting with the animals 🙂

Cheers!
