FIRST SEEDS OF SPRING!

We had a little window of dry days between the snowmelt and the rain beginning earlier this week. So on Monday and Tuesday John spaded in the winter's mulch of a fall-sown cover crop of oats, and made beds in the fields.

On Tuesday afternoon, I followed behind with the push seeder, sowing seeds in the freshly worked soil. I sowed carrots, spinach, radishes, turnips, and Asian greens. It's so exciting to be working in the soil again, preparing for the new season!

Even though it does not feel like it yet, spring is coming.  John noticed the return of the killdeer, a pretty seagull-like bird that inhabits farm fields, nesting on the ground. A strange name, I agree, but people say their call sounds like, "killdeer, killdeer." Having returned from their wintering grounds recently, they were looking for worms and bugs in the freshly turned earth.

 

CELIA & AIMEE'S VIDEO DEBUT

Last week, on a snow day, our daughter Celia accompanied me to the greenhouse for the day's seeding. I commissioned her to be a videographer for the day. I show you how we seed kale, and explain a bit about the process, from seed to seedling to field. You can watch it here on our facebook page, www.facebook/goodfarmcsa/.

We hope to continue to do more of these this season, to show members and farm fans a glimpse of the farm that otherwise would not be seen.  We hope you enjoy it!

John and Aimee Good
