Planting and transplanting

Ken's work is never done, it seems!  Often people think we "take the winter off," but no, we don't.  Our work does change, though.  I do seed orders and tax prep in late fall, then plan for the next season, send out harvest dates to potential CSA members, and in my spare time weave rag rugs.  

Ken keeps planting for winter micro greens, and starts planting full season crops in late January early February with the onions.  Last year he was seeding and transplanting in late February in the greenhouses.  This year it was late March.  

The seedlings are growing and going out - here are some brassicas, 

and some celery and parsley

And here is a close up of one of my favorites, a beautiful red mustard.
