This past week, Doug, Peter and I hustled and planted fall beets and fall chard. We have a few more rounds of fall planting to go (kale, broccoli, cabbage, the rumored "fall peas", and more) and then all of our greenhouse transplants will be in the ground! Hooray! They are happier than we are about it, I promise you that. Some of those little plants have been in the waiting room for quite a while!
After the transplants are out, all we have to do is the direct seeding. The carrots were seeded last weekend, which is a little late for carrots. They like to take their sweet time. I am hoping for an irregularly speedy carrot emergence. This hope manifests in my obsessive squirreling around in the soil, looking for split seed shells and thin new growth emerging. The carrots won't be rushed though.
While we wait, we have Laser to distract us. This past week, she donned dandelion leaves as eyebrows and posed for the camera!
All that being said, time to go! I look forward to seeing all of you at markets and any of you at the farm! I feel lucky to know you guys.
