The ground has been broken on our third hoop house/high tunnel. Unfortunately, that ground contains a LOT of big rocks. Christina needed to use the tractor to assist in getting this rock out of the way.
Our current high tunnels have received a lot of attention this week. Summer crops continue to be removed and fall/winter crops are taking their place. Below is a photo of the first planting of head lettuce.
This row once contained Lisianthus, but now that the cooler weather has arrived, it is time to replace it with a winter crop of Arugula. First step is to remove the old crop (and weeds) and pitchfork the now-empty row. Chemical-free soil amendments will be added and the row will be raked to be prepared for seeding. Here is photo of yours truly after Christina and I finished the pitchforking.
See you at the market!
hi mom! 🙂
