Spring Fields

This morning, walking around the farm, everything absolutely shouts “Waking up”. The place looks awesome; bright and shiny, mowed and organized.

Paul moves from field to field with a shovel, digging holes, checking moisture levels, deciding where what will get planted and when.

The finished kales, brussel sprouts, broccoli and cover crops have all been mowed.

A disc can quickly turn the plant debris over, giving the micro-organisms a meal.

Several fields were “turned” with a disc yesterday to allow for them to dry more quickly.

These tomatoes are huge and healthy.

The greenhouses are full of plants ready to transplant.

Padron peppers are much bigger than the antohis, in the house and in the field.

Interesting how much more vigorous the Padron peppers are than the other peppers.

Maximizing space or hair-brained experiment?

Making use of every inch of space, there are tomatoes and marigolds planted in the ground, under the tables in the greenhouse!

      Hi belov, We have 3 field workers that at this time of the year are not working every day. They will be 10 hour, 5 plus 1/2 day Saturday employees soon enough. We have additional help at the farmers’ market. Afraid we don’t offer tours. Leased land with landlords not interested in allowing more people on their property.
