This week, we’re starting to get our hands dirty.
On Sunday, our friends came for a visit and helped us start more plant babies! Thank you Jennifer, Allison, and Spinney for your help. The work got done in a flash. 🙌
We don’t always put our friends to work when they come to visit, but when we do they have a lot of fun. 🤩
Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you get the itch to help out at the farm this spring so that we can add you to our volunteer list.
We transplanted beets into the high tunnel—a plastic structure that keeps the plants warm and helps us start growing vegetables as early as possible. 🌱
We are so thankful to have access to this space thanks to our amazing mentor, Barb (more on our land access/mentorship story in a future email). It feels so good to be surrounded by a community of supportive farmers, newsletter subscribers, and CSA members as we start our farm! Thank you!
Last but not least, we got a load of potting soil so that we can… you guessed it… start even MORE plant babies! On a small veggie farm like ours, starting new plants is a constant process and something we will be doing again and again all summer long. It’s the best way for us to make sure we have each vegetable not just once but several times throughout the year.
