We planted garlic last week and prepped the farm for rain and a couple cold nights.
Temps here dropped down to 20 degrees and thick layer of frost covered the farm yesterday morning. The rain missed us though, which is a bummer, we were pretty excited for some moisture and muddy conditions. Oh well, I think the storm went north. The next 10 days look pretty mild, which does make growing Fall greens easy peasy. I think we will be harvesting the outside greens for another week or two and then we'll start picking off the greens in the tunnels.
Mike is in Albuquerque for a few days attending the National Young Farmer's Coalition (NYFC) Convergence with farmers from all across the country. NYFC has 36 chapters and the leaders and/or representatives from each of those chapters gather at the Convergence to network, connect and share ideas, learn organizing and advocacy skills, work on farm bill and state policy, and much more. I'm excited to hear all about it when he gets home!
