Finally! A gorgeous, hot, dry, sunny May day! Just what we need to get all of our little babies planted! After a wet, wet, wet, chilly spring Adam and I are STOKED for warm weather and drying soil. We (and the rest of the PNW farming community) are a couple weeks behind schedule as far as planting goes, but are grateful for the moisture.
Despite the challenging weather, we've still been able to get most of our spring crops in the ground, including broccoli, cabbage, onions, lettuce, radishes, turnips, carrots, beets, and kale. We've also moved the chickens to the pasture, added 20 honeybee hives, installed six 5000 gallon water storage tanks and built a gravel road. Next week, we're hoping to plant potatoes, flowers, and strawberries, get our irrigation system up and running, and prep our squash and tomato fields. And we're getting so excited for our CSA to start...only one more month!
We are also scrambling to get ready for the Moscow Farmers Market which starts THIS SATURDAY! Crazy! Definitely stop by for a visit! We'll be selling radishes, kale, arugula, bok choy, microgreens, and veggie starts.
Here's some other stuff we've been up to...
