(Slowly) Getting Going

After a storm last week that dropped surprisingly more snow than expected, I was starting to wonder if I would ever be able to get seeds in the ground. However, several days of drier weather allowed the top beds on the Home Farm to dry out enough that I was able to prepare them for planting and get pea seeds and onion plants in the ground yesterday! Today, I put in 5 new blueberry bushes to supplement the two we already have. Blueberries take 3-4 years to reach harvestable maturity, but once they do, we’ll have a bounty of berries at market!

In the greenhouse, the kale, collards, and broccoli (in the back row in the picture below) are growing away and getting ready to be planted in 2-3 weeks. The tomato and pepper plants (in the front row) are lagging behind a little, not very happy with the cloudy days and cool nights we’ve been having recently.
