Summer Begins

Onward into summer!  Lots of good looking plantings are  in the ground, doing well with the nice mix of sun and rain, cool and hot weather.  There is still lots of planting yet to do.    The list seems to have 10,000 things on it.  Soil building cover crops occupy about 1/3 of the farm this season.

Weeds are very well under control, thanks to both tractor cultivation and lots of hoe and hand work.  We have a small patch of strawberries, not quite enough to keep them in stock at Plainfield Coop.  The big kale planting has kicked in and we are shipping to Hunger Mountain Coop several times a week.  It is hard to find the time to sleep 8 hours, these nights are so short.
