Spring Break

Last Friday was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for getting a few beds seeded. I even managed to toss a few fingerling potatoes in the ground.

This week I'm on a kind of busman's holiday, visiting Foxglove Farm on Salt Spring Island in BC. They're planting strawberries between showers and preparing ground in the tunnels for tomatoes. I'm getting to hang out with the SOLE Food crew, who is having a little training up here, and enjoying some excellent food.

Next week is the first week of the spring harvest season. I'm hoping for more dry weather to get more plants in the ground. Harvest starts on Thursday and the sun would help speed up a few of the early greens too.
