A Rainy Week

So I missed another week of farming while off at work, but you can tell by how full the greenhouse is that people were busy anyway.  In addition,  the strawberries are planted alongside the greenhouse, the pea trellis’ are up, and Steph completed the chicken schooner.  Dave and I spent Saturday afternoon laying lime on the field and mowing down some of the rye grass.  Unfortunatlely, there was still twine in the field from last year’s tomatoes which kept getting tangled up in the mower and we’d have to spend time trying to pull it off.    I’ve got some picture below of our activities and some showing the progress of the transplants in the fields…

Cabbage or broccoli – protected with row cover because flea beetles really like these.
