We planted peas and spinach April 17, during a high wind and snow storm. My seed packets exploded.
The next week we pulled weeds and dug up rows.
This week, May 1, we planted beats, greens, and translated mustards and lettuce. The rest of the leafy plants will be transplanted next week. Our best worker kids attended, Isaiah and Naija, planting and transplanting like pros. This is the third year they've worked with us at the farm.
The soil is amazing, filled with worms and and various bugs. We won't need to amend the soil this year.
Here's a post one of our workers, Teresa made about working with us on May 1, with a poem she wrote:
We'll meet again Thursday at 5pm. Hope to see you there.
