As stated in our previous post, our dog Luna died earlier this year. We could not stay without dogs very long. So we have two new friends living with us - Bella (on the left) and Kennedy (right). If you have been up to the farm recently you know they love to bark at visitors so we are working with them on that issue. But they are friendly and love to play together. 
These slow-growing celeriac plants were seeded over 2 months ago. They were just transplanted yesterday and they will grow all summer before being harvested September - November.
Rows of just-planted and watered bean seeds.
There are so many nests around the farm right now.
Liz has been spending much of her time on the prone weeder using it to transplant. She is very proud because it is always our goal to get all the main transplanting done before markets start in June. I don't think we have ever done it before. But she transplanted the celeriac yesterday and that was the last major crop to get in the ground! Now onto using it mostly for what it is named for - weeding!
