Greetings from the farm!
The high tunnel is up (!!) thanks to a tremendous effort in the cold and wind from Willy, Grace, Jason, Alena and crew. We’re so happy to have Alena back from her vacation and we’ve been up late planting tons of tomatoes. In the (still) cold soil we’re growing leeks, garlic, potatoes, onions, lots of spring greens, lettuce, cauliflower, and broccoli All the plants and animals are begging for more sunshine and less rain. Is spring settling in yet? Next week we should be sending out pictures of hatching ducks and turkeys. Baby ducks rival piglets in cuteness with their big flirty eyes and baby turkeys look as you might imagine – like miniature dinosaurs. We can’t wait to meet them. Our young chickens are having a big week – they are learning to perch!
