Spring always seems to sneak up on us and before we know it we are in the field full time with a never-ending list of tasks. So far, David has completed two successions of direct seedings of salad and cooking greens and root vegetables. The first planting germinated wonderfully and has been cultivated (hoed) once so far.
The overwintered garden is looking great. Strawberries, onions, garlic, and fava beans are in mulched beds with some flowering mustard, tatsoi, turnip greens, and arugula between them.
The first transplants were planted this week. They included kale, broccoli, lettuce, kohlrabi, bok choy, and more.
The greenhouse if full and everytime we transplant we also seed new flats that replace them. So, transplanting continues through May and into June.
This year is new and exciting because we get to also experience it through the eyes of our baby boy, Maxwell.
He LOVES the farm, but is quick to inform us of when we are working too much and not taking time to enjoy ourselves and the scenery.
This is where reliable employees come in. Currently we are taking applications, checking references, and conducting interviews. Anyone interested can find a job description and application by going to "Jobs" link in "About Snow's Bend".
