Bella's sister Alice is visiting the farm this week

Making raised beds for carrots and beets

Tomatoes went in the ground last week in the hoophouses

We will be hosting a pre-season potluck this Friday May 5, 6:00. Come see what's growing and listen to the peepers' evening serenade. It seems right now like the weather might improve by Friday! Plus we still have many vegetable transplants for sale and it looks like this weekend will be a great time to get your garden started.
