Listen to our podcast.
The first tomatoes have outgrown their protective row covers. Juan Jose and crew began to stake and tie them last week, all the while keeping abreast of continuous squash and melon seedings. We started picking a few seedless cucumbers, you’ll soon see these in your weekly boxes. Our first zucchini and yellow crookneck carries the promise of a productive season. January seedings of beets and kale have enjoyed the cooler weather, but any premature heat may send them bolting. Our neighbor Tom Bursey came to spread compost for a couple of days last week. Mr. Willey is doing great work with biological fertility and every living plant on the farm is enjoying it. Tractor drivers, Antonio, Clemente and Isaac, have kept busy turning ground over from one season’s bounty to another, a transformation that is nothing short of remarkable. We are looking forward to showing off the farm to CSA members on May 2nd. – denesse
