Farm Update Friday April 3
By Nat Wilson
Friday’s rains made it a good day for working in the greenhouse. While Zan started seeds in Marsh Gardens, the rest of us harvested produce for OUR FIRST FARMER’S MARKET OF THE YEAR! Laura, Kate, Chelsea, and I collected, washed, and packed radishes, mizuna, arugula, and spinach, placing them in the freezer overnight. The greenhouse, which we began planting in December and continued through February and early March, is practically overflowing with greens, ready to harvest and eat. Following harvest, we congregated around the pavilion for pizza (nettles, spinach, and honey!) and to try out the Farm’s newest aquisition, a shiny bicycle + trailer courtesy of Yale Transportation Options (blog post coming soon).
