Starting to Feel Like Summer

The first CSA pick up is only two and a half weeks away. I hope everyone is excited for fresh and delicious produce! Here is a quick update on what is happening at the farm. 

The tomatoes and peppers are starting to bloom. 

We focused a lot of energy this week on building the second hoophouse. The construction is complete and we are just waiting for the wind to calm so we can attach the plastic cover. Wahoo! The plan is to fill this house with more heirloom tomatoes, sweet peppers, eggplant, cucumbers and a few flowers.

Earlier in the month we planted a small berry patch! It includes 5 different varieties of strawberries, 3 varieties of raspberries and a couple blackberries for good measure. The strawberries took off right away and are looking very strong and the raspberries and blackberries (also known as brambles) are justing starting to pop up.

The garlic planted last fall is looking great. 

And the salad greens and pac choi are growing quickly and should be ready to harvest soon.
