The big news on the farm these days is the hoop house that's going up. This is a joint project between Yianni, who owns the land we're using, and the farm. We're putting in a bit of sweat equity and in return we'll have a warm, dry place to start some seeds and perhaps a bit of space to grow a few shoulder season crops out of the weather.
While the hoop house is consuming a significant portion of our time these days the rest of the farm activities still move forward. Most of the seeds for the season have been ordered and our planting plan is all in place. Sign ups for shares are rolling in and the overwintered crops are mostly looking good. Favas were the one predictable casualty of the winter freezes but we'll seed more of those soon.
