Farm Update Sunday Wednesday April 1

I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden. –Ruth Stout
Tulips and garlic are peeking through the ground at the Yale Farm, an exciting sign that has spring has indeed arrived. It was a quiet afternoon at the garden yesterday. Matthew and I moved compost and weeded beds that will be planted in the next few weeks. We also harvested spinach and a bag of pea shoots from the north greenhouse, which is now an incredible and vibrant hothouse of plants. There are spinach greens, mizuna, arugula, pea shoots, chard, and radishes still growing in the greenhouse which means that we’ll be making our first trip over to farmer’s market this week. Afterwards, we headed over to Marsh Botanical Gardens to plant several trays of Bordeaux Spinach and Astro Arugula that will be harvested later this month. We have a great workday planned for Friday, followed by delicious brick oven pizza, so please come on up and join us. It’s Sustainability Week at Yale and what better way to celebrate sustainability than with good work and a slice of homemade pizza among friends?
