Lacinato kale is pushing to flower and seed. Both types of kale were transplanted last month and hopefully we will begin picking from them before this crop is too far gone.

Here you can see the different environment created by the row covers, and the advantages are obvious. The covered arugula is much bigger than the lettuces in the colder field. We may end up covering some lettuce to push it along. Sometimes covers allow us to plant once and stagger the harvest times.

The greenhouses are filling up. In the warm part of the day, the condensation drips as you walk through and it feels cold when you walk outside again.
