The crush to get the plants in the ground at the right time is on! I can't prep beds fast enough for all the seedlings that are ready to go in, even though some have to wait until I know it won't get too cold. I will get frosts throughout the summer (the longest the farm goes without a frost is 3 weeks), but the earlier and later in the year the harder the frosts and little tunnels of fabric and plastic can only provide so much protection. For most growers they are considered season extension supplies, but for me they make growing in my little valley possible and without them I would be limited to spinach, radishes, and kale.
It was a great market last week and I will be there again this week (and every week) with all the flowers, micros, and eggs (and soon more flowers and veg) rain or shine!
Now back to bed prep and planting!
What's available this week?
I'm Farmer Megan with a life full of cackles, clucks, quacks, weeds, crazy kitten, and one tiny, senior, blind dog.
