Sunny spring days make farm crops and farmers so happy! We’re still hard at work planting for this season and as we move across the farm, it’s so gratifying to see the farm coming back to life again. May and June are the most intensive planting months every year, so we’re out there all day every day getting seeds and seedlings in the ground.
Some of the earliest crops we planted in March are already ready for harvest, so part of the crew is out harvesting every morning while the air is still cool. Spring greens like Spinach and Lettuce, Kale and Salad mix, don’t care for the midday heat, so getting them out of the field before the sun gets too intense is always a priority. A little harvesting first thing in the morning is always a satisfying way to start the day.
