The overwintering chard and kale is coming on strong with terrific spring growth.
We love our hoophouse, where we just started harvesting the lettuce we planted mid-February. Great to get early salad greens in the Food Bank. Now we’ve also planted lettuce, peas, chard and kale out in the field.
Brrrr! But it’s still cold, though, so we’re protecting our little starts with floating row cover!
In the greenhouse we’re growing lots of starts not only for the garden, but to distribute to Food Bank clients.
Lots of bed prep, and great satisfaction when the starts are planted!
A big thank you to all the Whitman College students who volunteered during their spring break!
