Great Day for the High Tunnel!

There's nothing better than starting out your day by getting a great look at your surroundings and taking in all the wonder the eyes can see.  I am truly blessed to be surrounded by........................


      Such crazies>>>>>>>>>>>>  Let the fun begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today Tomato Planting in the "High Tunnel"



And what a beautiful day it was.  The prep work had been started by our Crop Mob back at the beginning of the month.


Compost was put down along with drip line and cover.



Watering was checked both on the ground and in the air.

And then we found the Farmer!  Pulling the posse together for a morning stroll through the tunnel!

The cart was being loaded with tomatoes
of all kinds,



As we stood by and watched the water, fertilizer and the hole punch unwind.

Dan and Marv always have a precise plan,



As to how many there are and what kind, all going in by hand.




What beauties!







"The Posse"
(HG, Marv, Dan and Ernesto)




Ernesto was following up with the braces for the top row cover.

Successful Crop Mob!!



We had an excellent group of people come out and help us prepare for the fast approaching season


We prepared the high tunnel by laying down compost to get ready to plant tomatoes!


Once the work was done, we sat down for lunch outside of the barn and had wonderful conversations under the blue skies.
Exciting Progressions in the Greenhouse!

varieties of bell and hot peppers. Will become 55 flats many for the Wilmington flower market


As of today: The additions to the greenhouse are 2800 tomatoes for second planting. Sunflowers. First basil. Profusion zinnias for the stand. About 130 flats at this point

The garlic that was planted in November is beginning to sprout and is well on its way.
