Projects and planting

So I know that there was a huge gap in time between today and the last post, so sorry.
We have been getting the farm into running condition, tidying up, training interns, finishing projects and of course, planting like crazy!

Quick update: the raised beds at ground level are finished, the cold frames have come down and the trellising is going up, we have 5 kinds of tomatoes planted in the boxes, along with arugula, eggplant, 4 different varieties of peas, a few different lettuce mixes, and a lot of herbs. We purchased black, red and white currant bushes which now live in our front ground level beds. And we have Concord seedless grapes and Catawba grapes, which will help construct the arbor that we are building over the front entry way! We have two kinds of fava beans planted in Earthboxes and next week will hopefully warm up enough to plant some corn and more beans.

  1. Cool. I'm planning on attending the second heirloom tomato plants sale, so maybe I'll get a chance to meet you, if you're around.
