A planting we will go.

We waited, and waited, and finally the sun came out again. This last ten days have been our busiest in the field: plowing, discing, fertilizing, tilling, and transplanting. We have nearly filled our newest (leased) field, just around the corner from our main farm and home. Mike and Patrick run tractors from sun up to dusk, and we now have broccoli, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, celery, celeriac, lettuces, chard (stop me any time)... all sorts of transplants into the field. Our new transplanter is performing well so far...we hope that it will speed up our planting time significantly.

The plants are happy to be out of their flats, and the forest of tomatoes will be in the ground by next week. Mike is seeding beans as we speak. We will have much to offer for the Summer season!
