Now we have all the greenhouses up and running with all new hoops and new floors, with a new cover for number three. We also have number two full of broccoli, cabbage, kale, brussel sprouts, romaine and mixed leaf lettuces. We have a few odds and ends like Rutger and Roma tomatoes, wax peppers and Jalapenos and basil. These are germinated and in some cases ready to transplant into bigger cells. All in all we have around 13000 plants in that greenhouse.
The tomatoes and peppers are doing well but are still at Wentzel's for the time being. We will bring them home starting next week.
We have started working up the ground and have the fields where the sweet corn and early green beans disked, and we have the garden in the back and the field across the road field cultivated. Next we will work up the potato ground and the partial field where we will plant all the early stuff. Green onions and onion plants, carrots, spinach, beets, radishes, lettuce and romaine, kale and early broccoli and cabbage will go in that field. It is around 90' X 300' in size, and is irrigated with trickle irrigation.
The weather this past week was very good and the ground is beginning to warm up fast --it was even a bit dry in the field where we plan to plant sweet corn --we can use the rain we are getting today.
