What’s been going on!
Was Thanksgiving only a week ago? Seems like a lot more living than that has occurred in the last 7 days! We hope you all had a great holiday and are ready to go because here comes December and before we know it will be Christmas.
Some really cold mornings here this week in the low 20’s but we have been able to take advantage of the warm afternoons to get some seasonal work done. A few weeks ago we planted the anemone and ranunculus bulbs into beds that we had prepared in advance, before all of that crazy rain. Today we pulled the sliding tunnels over them to warm them up and get them growing.
Of course there is always some repair/maintenance that has to be done with those tunnels before we can move them. Only 5 boards had to be replaced this time for the two tunnels but there will be more I am sure before we move the other four in March but for now everything is in good shape for closing things up tight when the really cold weather arrives.
Picture of the Week
The new wood being installed. This tunnel will slide off the lettuce and over the anemones at the far end.
What’s going to be at the market?
Remember the winter market starts at 9:00!
In Lettuce this week we have plenty of Little Gem, Summer Crisp and Salad Mix. A small amount of Lacinato Kale and Spinach.
Japanese Salad Turnips. Lots of Red Radishes. Wonderful fresh Baby Ginger and Turmeric!
As a reminder if there is anything that you would like for us to hold for you at market just let us know by e-mail, by the evening before, and we will be glad to put it aside for you. Just so you know, sometimes not everything listed will be at the Wednesday market.
Hope to see you all at the market!
Alex, Betsy and Jennie
