Just an update on 2012 shares. All the Twin Cities pick-up locations are sold out and there are about EIGHT spots available yet for pick-up at the farm in Hutchinson. We expect to fill these within the next month or couple weeks, so do contact us if you’d like to sign up. Thanks to all of our returning and new members for signing up with us this year! We’re looking forward to fresh vegetables soon!!!
Our new hoophouse (144 feet long and 32 feet wide) will be delivered this week and we will immediately start work on getting that up. I just up-potted the tomatoes in the greenhouse that will be transplanted into our new tunnel. Adam has gotten into most all of our fields to work out the first batch of weeds, plant oat and pea cover crops, and spread all our compost. Record earliness for us! We will do some seeding in the next few days in hopes of catching a passing rain shower. The high winds have really dried out the soil so rain would be excellent! We’re not jazzed about having to set up irrigation in early April, but we have the means to do it if necessary. For that we are grateful. Hard to tell at this point in the game, but it feels like this summer could continue on with the drought pattern started last fall.
