SPROUTING ACRES 2013 SEASON Box #4

Posted 6/19/2013 10:37pm by Andy Watson.

Hello and welcome to week 4. We are still busy catching up on the farm but we have pretty much caught up to where we want to be. Now it's maintaining what we have in the groung. Trimming our hoophouse tomatoes so they can grow 8' feet tall. Tying up all the tomatoes so they don't hit the ground, ever. Keeping all the beds free of weeds and getting them when they are small and easy to hoe(we have a hoe attached to a big wheel that make it easy). Replacing plants that deer, rabbits, mother nature, and mysterious other reasons have dissapeared. Seeding in the greenhouse every week trying to keep up with lettuce and greens successions. Getting our fall transplants nice and big so we can put those out in a few weeks. You name it, we are doing it, every day, all day, all week. We did put the asparagus bed to rest finally and our backs are happy for doing so. The strawberry plants are starting to send out nice big runners so we can have a big harvest next spring. Our to do list never ends, there is always work to do on the farm, but we love doing it. Well, most of it. I could do without the weeds. 


Remember it is an even box week. Have a great weekend and enjoy your veggies. Also, let us know what you liked over the last four weeks and tell us what you have been making. We really like to know. Just send us an email or post on facebook.


Below is the newsletter.
