Field Notes. Ken had expected to harvest from the mobile high tunnel this week, but the cooler nights have slowed everything down. Spring is pretty unpredictable - one year 80's in March, one year snow and cold. So we roll with the weather and work in all those windows of opportunity as they pop open.
As much as Ken gets ready ahead of a job, and keeps equipment in good repair, once the spring weather hits he is incredibly busy - planting, transplanting, trimming apple trees, making compost for the next year, etc
And then there are those unforeseen events - like coming home and finding Oscar in the irrigation pond stuck in ice on Monday. Go back a few blog entries if you want the whole story. He is fine and we are recovering as well
Goose egg season has started. This seasonal treat comes around each spring. Goose eggs are large - about the size of three large chicken eggs. They are particularly good for smooth custards, light cakes and airy omelettes. We have these available for sale - usually just into May.
PLEASE NOTE! This is the last week of our 2014 - 5 season. Our next season starts next week on April 1st (no fooling). We are no longer delivering vegetables. St Croix Falls has organized a group pickup at farm, but no one in Amery has, so this is the last box we are delivering to Amery.
'Til Next Week, Judith
