Dirty Boy Making Trays for Onions
What a difference a few weeks make in New England! These temps have got us all thinking about the spring chores that need doing. I always have fun with onions. We continue to pull onions that were seeded this time last year out of storage, clean them up and enjoy them. While eating a dish made with those onions I watch this years onions grow. This is just one of the things that bring the farm full circle.
Other happenings on the farm this week:
Alex takes his vacation before the heat really turns up on the farm. When he gets back it will be time to tune equipment and get ready to roll.
First tomatoes should be potted up, their final stage before planting into the first tomatoes greenhouses.
We will be looking at a root harvester to make that crop more profitable for us. Also going to a conference on farm efficiency to help keep labor under control.
On March 6th we will welcome our new crew manager onto the farm. Erin will spend the spring getting him up to speed so we can continue to have the fine crew operations that she created.
Many more things in the works. Stop by and check out the summer feel in the greenhouse if you are around.
New from Bell & Goose this week: Similar to Boursin, Herb Rounds from Bell & Goose Cheese Co. Will be available at the farm stand this weekend in three flavors.
See you this week!
