It sure feels like winter out there today, but despite this last blast of cold and snow we are busy preparing for the growing season ahead. The greenhouse is nearly full with seedlings: shallots, onions, bok choy, spinach, chard, kale, cabbage, beets, eggplant, peppers, and more. We'll begin transplanting the most cold-tolerant of these crops at the very end of the month. Until then we'll continue seeding both in the greenhouse and high tunnels and will be finishing up our organic certification and food safety plans. Cameron is fixing up a cultivating tractor and two new crew members--Brad and Christina--will begin learning how we do things around the farm.
Infrastructure improvements continue including underground irrigation line and a third high tunnel for producing winter greens and summer tomatoes. Check out the photos below to see what's new!

We bought this Allis Chalmers G tractor from a celery farmer in Michigan last fall. Now its time to get it ready to use on our farm.
