SPRING 2015!

April 20, 2015

Wow, it took a while, but it really is finally here!
Things are slower than usual, but, as we have learned in the past (last year!), things tend to catch up quickly even with a late spring. We hope!
We have lettuce, peas, beans, parsley, new kale growing in the greenhouses, should be ready in a few weeks. We have tomatoes, peppers, squash, cukes, scallions and more in plugs still growing before we plant them out...but we are ready to get them planted! We have been harvesting the spinach, kale and cilantro like crazy for the last 2 months, but those crops are nearly done and we are anxious to rip them out and get new crops planted.

We have had 7 calves this spring. 5 heifers and 2 bull calves. The cattle are literally "chomping at the bit" to get out on pasture. The grass, like the crops in the greenhouses, are slow to get going, but we are seeing the green shoots poking through. It will come!

We are getting our ducks in a row for the upcoming Burger night season! We can't wait! We have an awesome new staff in place, with many returners from years past. We had our kick off training meeting and it was so fun to see that every person on the crew is either studying or working in the farm, food, naturalist fields! Such amazing common interests. We are so lucky to have such a good crew from year to year!

Stay tuned for more updates soon!
