Early Spring at Victory Farm

Adam and I like to joke that we're contractors instead of farmers since we've spent all of this incredibly wet winter building a barn and a new greenhouse. It's easy to forget that we actually grow plants for a living! Needless to say, we are SO excited that spring is here!

Here's a springtime update of all the happenings at Victory Farm!

Last week we officially started our 2017 season with a batch of 80 adorable layer chicks and 70 seedling trays of onion, tomato, brassicas, flowers and more. (We named our new greenhouse "the nursery" since it's full of babies)! This week we're seeding early spring greens and roots into our hoophouse and starting another bunch of seeds in the nursery. 

Our poor flooded farm....

Broadforking! Here's Adam getting the hoophouse ready to seed early greens and roots. Broadforking is a great way to aerate the soil without disrupting the soil structure. #newtoolsarefun
