april 18 field report

Exciting day here – we got a tractor!  

Elsewhere on the farm . . . tomato seedlings in the cold frame are getting bigger, and the greenhouse is filling up with seed trays of kale, chard, lettuce, bok choi, scallions, onions and leeks. 

nice and warm inside the cold frame

Out in the field, we’ve been preparing some beds for planting early crops. I got some salad greens and peas planted just before the last rain. We are growing lots of peas this year (shell peas, snow peas and sugarsnaps) so I’m hoping for nice moderate temperatures in May and June, that will bring us a good crop. We’re also growing a bed of pea shoots since they are so delicious!
