Wild spring weather pushes back plowing...what's growin' now...
Well last Sunday we got nickle sized hail that punched a few holes in the greenhouse plastic but not much more. This week was miserable with 2" of rain, 50 mph winds... And today, welp, a lovely one but it is not to last. They're calling for another 2" over the next 2 days. Each time it rains plowing the fields gets pushed back farther and farther; can't plow wet ground. So pray for a 4-6 day break in precipitation!
Also, I'm not sure if I posted this before but the garlic looks great (I'll upload a photo soon). I was a bit worried with this really cold winter they wouldn't do so hot but they are doing fine. Fava beans are planted as are about 1000' of Oregon Giant snow peas and Sugar Ann snap peas. I've got quite a few flats started including the first of a few varieties of cabbages, collards, kale, spinach, bibb romaine & green leaf lettuce. Onions have been transplanted from strips to individual cell flats called 288s (288 individual cells for each onion, VERY TEDIOUS WORK).
TOMATO HEADS: all of my first tomatoes are up and will be transplanted up to larger cell flats soon. I will be growing about 15 varieties of tomatoes including quite a few herilooms plus standard red slicing tomatoes. You'll be eating one like Black Krim, green sausage and green zebra, and dad's sunset. I'll keep you posted. Hope all are well.
