The farm is starting to look alive again!
Taking a look around today, it looks like our kales, lettuces, radishes and favas are all up and running. The fennel and shallot starts seem to be holding their own, but the leeks took a hit when a mole built a hill on their bed. A few things (kale mostly) are showing some chewn leaves, so slugs got baited for–hopefully that will help.
The rest of the day was devoted to building those little trellises and hothouses you see, and getting our mallow family plants in the ground.
This year we have:
Blacktail Mountain Watermelon from Seedsavers–This feels like a long shot, but how fantastic if we pull it off. Idaho heirloom that does well in cooler climates, and short seasons. A shocking 65-75 days.
Australian Butter Pumpkins from Seedsavers–Good keeper. Lets just hope we got them in the ground on time!…
