Each year about this time we ask ourselves the question......when should we pull the plug and be done for the season. But this year is very different from the last!! We now have the added bonus of the high tunnel. This is a game-changer!! If you peruse back through our older posts you will find that we shut the farm down in early January last season due to the second ice storm of the season. That was without the high tunnel. This year we will again be performing our "12 month growing experiment".............Can we do it???? We are confident we can.....but only time will tell.
Our no commitment CSA program will run for the indefinite future. We now have a select few crops sowed in the high tunnel and plants started in the seed room which will be transplanted out into the high tunnel (celery, celeriac, tomatoes, broccoli, fennel, cauliflower, chinese cabbage, red onions, etc.). Crops will start coming out of the beds outside in late march or early April so we have another 4.5 months of fall/winter to play our dormant season games!!!
It is so much fun to experiment with growing........we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!
And to top it all off we are scheduled to get some rain tonight!!
Things are looking up!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
