This dry weather has been perfect for getting all of the cultivation/weeding done, the staff has done a great job of cleaning everything up, now we just need some water to keep it growing. Even though the forecast is for a good wet period early next week I will still be setting up irrigation today, that will bring the rains for sure! We also got more things planted both in the greenhouse (more tomatoes, tomatillos, sunflowers) and in the field with the first of Betsy’s fabulous Zinnia’s being seeded. Last year we planted the first Zinnias three times (does that make each planting the first?) because the first two were flooded from all of last springs rains. Won’t happen this time, they are high up on the hill.
The big project this week is the subject of the picture of the week. You will get lots of news on this as the season progresses but we began the final step of a process we started last fall.
