We had cancelled the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service because it was so cold and frozen, but intrepid volunteers showed up and so we harvested in the hoophouse. Nine pounds of mixed salad greens went into the Food Bank!
Winter finally came and blanketed the garden with almost a foot of snow. A big thanks for Sarah Birger and Matthew Swett for regularly brushing the snow off the hoophouse!
We also stacked up milk crates to prop the hoophouse up in the overnight snow storms. Just one little cold farmer left out on the fence!
Love those veggies! They did amazingly well under the snow. The spinach got remarkably sweet, and everything survived. We’ll be harvesting this week!
We’re starting to turn over the cover crops, weather permitting. The soil is beautiful, and it’s lots of fun to chop the rye cover crop in, knowing that it’s creating organic matter for this year’s crop.
Join us if you see us out in the field working. On Wednesdays, we’ll have hot soup, and salad greens from the garden, for lunch!
