A few photos from the last week on the farm. We are getting an amazing amount of work done since our 3 employees joined us last Monday. Adam and co. will begin the hoop house construction tomorrow, drilling over 80 holes with an auger for the hoop house posts. In the late afternoon, we will try to slip in some transplants, if the soil has dried out enough. And Friday is the first harvest for market. Saturday, Laura makes the trek into Minneapolis for the first Mill City Farmers Market! And it is all a blur from here on out until we get through the first CSA delivery in mid-June and heave a sigh of relief. The intense sunny, bright energy of early Spring and summer, the 15+ hours of photosynthesis happening all around us and getting to taste the pleasures of those green greens all help us to keep on keeping on despite myriads of projects and juggling an 8-month old before Grandma is here to help in June. It is such a thrill to be on the cusp of summer though and we remind ourselves to savor it as we work outside on these glorious days.
And a few photos…Hay wagons filled with seedlings waiting to be transplanted after the rainclouds pass.
Garlic growing up and up and up!
