After having nearly 6 inches of rain fall over a period of a week and a half, things got a little soggy around here. So we’ve been playing a little bit of the hurry up and wait game.
We’ve had 7 hay racks full of plants waiting to go outside for a week, so the rain gave us a chance to get the new-to-us transplanter ready to go. We’ve had a two row transplanter in the past, but it required 2 people per row and one driver plus one person following. This year we are going to use the carousel transplanter, which goes around in circles as the name suggests. Stay tuned later this week to find out how it worked!
We also got a little anxious and went ahead and “mudded in” some more tomato plants in the high tunnel. The little metal hoops give us a place to put the white “blanket” at night so that the tomato plants stay warm.
Don’t forget, Mother’s Day is coming soon – THIS SUNDAY to be specific. Does your mom want a weekly bag of vegetables? Get one in the Pekarek’s Produce CSA!
We also have gift certificates available!
