End of the Plant Sale

The first weeks of June always feel like a big push on the farm.  We were grateful to have some extra hands to help us get corn, squash, melons, tomatoes, and peppers in the ground.  All the transplants are certainly enjoying the constant mist/drizzle today.  A big thank you to Danny, Kyle, Cayla, Blake, and Brittany for lending a few hours to get the job done.

I have really enjoyed meeting all the folks who stopped by for our spring plant sale this past month.  I am inspired and humbled by all the knowledgeable gardeners in the area.  Pete and I just moved to Plainfield at the beginning of April, so it was a great way to meet members of the community.   Thanks for all the support!

In other exciting news, Littlewood has gone solar. Over the past two weeks a slow parade of people and vehicles from Suncommon have visited the farm and installed two solar panels that are now feeding the sun’s rays directly into the power grid.  It feels good to be creating energy in a way similar to the photosynthetic processes that all the plants we’ve been raising here use.

    What a joy to read your posts, Joey. Love the photos of veggies and you on your antique tractor. But I think you work too hard. Thanks for making the world a better place.
