It's March... we had a couple days in the 50's last week but now the wind is ripping and snow is falling. Feels like Spring is a comin'!
March is a great month at the farm, things really start to pickup as the ground thaws and days get longer. We begin seeding crops on a regular basis, building the many projects we have planned for the season, fixing this and that, repairing tires, changing oil, etc.
We purchased materials last week to build a propagation house here at the farm! It should come together quickly (once this storm passes) and make the vegetable starts and the farmers much happier!
We seeded carrots and beets in the greenhouse on 2/21 and they should be up any moment... and today marks the first seeding of tomatoes and peppers for the season! I love growing these two crops. Seeding, repotting, transplanting, trellising, harvesting, etc... I love every step from seed to harvest. We're trialling a few new varieties this season. I'm on a mission to find the perfect brandywine type for our farm. The variety I came to love and rely on in Ridgway doesn't perform as well here so we're experimenting with 4 new (to me) heirlooms plus my old favorite, Soldacki.
Shishitos were a hit with CSA Members last season so we're planting many more this year, along with Padrons and a mix of sweet peppers. Who's ready for the flavors of August?!
