Farm Prep for 2014

Spring has finally sprung and we are busy getting ready for another great year of growing organic vegetables for our UK CSA members!

Starting in February, plants have been getting a head start in our greenhouse. We’ve filled trays with seeds,

and gave some of our onion plants a haircut.

The fields have thawed out after our long winter. The first two of many fields were spaded to till in the cover crop and get them ready for planting. Compost was added to these fields as a fertility source for the plants.

In the beginning of April, we transplanted the first batch of our little greenhouse seedlings into our ready and waiting fields. Seedlings that went in the ground first included: Kohlrabi, Broccoli, Cabbage, Kale, and Lettuce. We also sowed seed for Carrots, Beets, and Spinach.

Meanwhile, many more seedlings are still waiting patiently in our greenhouse for warmer temperatures before moving outside into our fields: peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, herbs, okra, leeks, flowers, and more.

In addition, we’ve done some house-cleaning.

Our tools and equipment are undergoing routine maintenance, and we even put a fresh coat of paint, so-to-speak, on our blog! We hope you enjoy the new look to this site. Don’t forget to take advantage of our growing recipe archive, where you can find tasty recipes for nearly any of the vegetables you will be receiving in your CSA share.
