We Love You Sunshine
Notes From The Field
by Farmer Derek

Transplanting the first of many rounds of snap beans this past Friday.
A snapshot of the farm in mid-May: Exceptional hustle amidst a wet, windy, and cold first harvest last Monday followed by the return of our off-and-on again friend the sun which allowed us to hustle again on Friday as we used the tractor and transplanted for the first time in over a week. Infinite weeding continues as we clean up what the cultivating hoes miss. Onions, carrots, cabbage, broccoli, kohlrabi, and kale have been merrily saved. Up next are beets. Last of the peas have been trellised. Next urgency is cultivating many crops that haven't been hoed due to the dominating wet weather pattern of the past couple of weeks. The commencement of harvesting means a significant amount of time each week is devoted to that so our window to tackle other tasks slightly narrows. However with successful harvests there's a feeling of optimism as the fruits of our labors can now be eaten. Spring crops, especially the lettuces and greens, have been thriving and should continue to do so. We do hope you love your greens as much as we do. Salads and smoothies for health!
