Early Spring Crops

So it’s Friday again, and it’s kind of neat – we’ve had over 3.20″ of rain in the past three days that came down in a nice slow rain.  It’s nice and muddy everywhere, and while it means we aren’t able to transplant the things in the greenhouse that are ready to go outside, it also means that we have some moisture in the ground, we don’t have to irrigate in April, and the soil isn’t going to blow away!  That makes us happy farmers.


The greenhouse is very full today.  It’s so full, in fact, that we have trays on the ground next to the benches on both sides and plants outside.


We are a bit earlier than last year with crops.  Look at these tomato plant… They are significantly taller than a five year old!


Oh, and look what we are harvesting… first cucumber harvest of the year and we are eating them up.  Sorry folks, but you’ll just have to wait a little longer – I called dibs!


Depending on what the weather does, we will be transplanting next week. IF I remember to bring the camera, that will make for some nice pictures.  Have a great weekend – see you at the farmers markets in 2 weeks!  AND Don’t forget to sign up for the Pekarek’s Produce CSA.
