Broadforking a couple of beds where the soil was somewhat compacted.
We were able to put new plastic on Folkenflik (one of our 96' unheated hoophouses). The plastic was fairly old and torn. It is recommended to replace greenhouse plastic every 5-7 years or so for proper light transmission. We would like to replace the plastic on a couple of our 48' hoophouses. But it does not look like the weather will make it possible this week. Which is fine with me. Bring on some snow!

 This is our biggest week all Spring for planting trays in the greenhouse. All of our pepper, eggplant and tomato seedlings need to get potted up. And onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, kale, chard, celeriac, greens and more (both for our use and for plant sales) all are scheduled to be planted this week. The greenhouse will be filling up fast!
