We have been busy on the farm!  So busy I forget to sit down and share it here. This warm spring has been on-going, and we are planting accordingly.  The barberry is blooming, the cottonwoods started their snowy seed shower last week.  We have even heard frogs at night around the 1st of March!  There may come a night when we are rushing to the farm with frost blankets in hand, but we will hope it holds off.

The onions are in the ground!  We are trying something new with them this year: planting on plastic mulch.  Onions are notoriously hard to keep weeded - even in their maturity they provide no canopy to shade out new weeds. We had lots of help getting these 13,000 onions in the ground (thanks everyone!) - it's the usually the first and most tedious transplanting of the season.  It's been two weeks since this picture was taken, and the onions are now standing at attention and are growing happily.


In fact, the mulch-layer is our newest labor saving device on the farm, so it will be making an appearance all season.  Farming in a very rural location + being a small business with limited cash flow + living off the farm = a challenge for us to find much needed reliable, able labor on the farm.  We are hoping the mulch layer will provide a relief from labor spent weeding, so when we do have extra help, it can be dedicated to planting, harvesting, and other projects.

Kale in the greenhouse that was planted in the field last week:

Lettuce that we planted out this morning:

Parsley surrounded by cottonwood seeds.  We have already seen some of these seeds sprout in the wet spots of our beds!

With seven weeks until the first market, we will be planting non-stop!
