Farm Update, Sunday February 1st
By Nat Wilson
The warmth today made me almost forget the cold of the past couple weeks as we worked both in the greenhouse and outdoors at the farm this afternoon. Tory successfully finessed cooperation out of our finicky 6-row seeder, planting Swiss Chard in the greenhouse. Afterward, she helped shovel a clear new path from the Edwards St gate to the containers, while Franke pulled out any chickweed that was even thinking of encroaching on our spinach beds. Meanwhile, Tom exhibited excellent sledgehammer technique as he pulled more compost out from behind the container and into the prop house to thaw. As with so many things connected to the farm, we’ll be happy that we did this later.
