The last expected frost date has meant long days in the garden, planting and weeding and watching it all grow. Completed tasks this week have been laying out long rows of plastic covered mounds, transplanting 175 tomato plants, planting beans, purslane, beets, and lettuce, cutting, washing, and bagging lettuce and spinach for two farmers markets and our third delivery, plus lots and lots of weeding.
A special thanks to our six worker shares who have been indispensible in keeping the weeds at bay and in getting all of the lettuce from the field to the bags. The worker shares make a big difference, not only in terms of labor, but in the feel of the farm. It feels like a community effort and not just a business.
