Raspberries!

 

Farm Happenings

We had a slam-packed weekend of tractor work, planting, unplanned vehicle maintenance, greenhouse work, and harvesting that took up almost every waking moment of our time.  Therefore there is no newsletter, but there is a lot of news to share, which we will write about next week.

To mention just a few exciting things: we now have almost an acre of summer vegetables planted.  The start of the summer CSA is looking great! Also, we planted a bed of raspberries on the farm that we dug from Chloe’s parents’ yard (they’ve got some great raspberry plants) last week.  After watering them in, they seemed to glow in the sunlight, telling us they survived the transplant and will bear fruit in the seasons to come.  Now, planting the strawberry plants that are sitting in our cooler is the next thing on the list.

Enjoy this week’s vegetables!
