Farm update – 2/4/2018

Granted we’ve only been using it a week, but I’m absolutely over the moon about our new germination heating mat. Everything that was planted last weekend sprouted quickly, in just two or three days. Even better, it kept the seedling flats at about 65 degrees through two nights of freezing temps.

Broccoli, peppers, eggplant, more kohlrabi, and pea shoot seeds were sown this week, so the greenhouse is quickly filling up with flats and tiny seedlings. Speaking of pea shoots, the first flat of the year is about ready for harvest!

We checked another major item off the to-do list this weekend by building and installing six more raised beds in the field. At the same time, we started making improvements to the layout of the new field rows. Even though we ended up with a beautiful afternoon, this morning’s rain created some puddles in the field that kept us from finishing our work there, so that will be a project for next weekend, along with more greenhouse plantings and felling trees for this year’s mushroom logs.
