Appreciation to Cedar Grove Compost for their donation of ten yards of compost in our twenty yard delivery. Another big thank you to Chris Korrow for his tractoring skills and Italian shovel spader that made short work of the farm beds.
Chris also tilled new beds on both sides of the north fence line. We’ll grow trellising veggies on the inside, and flowers to attract beneficial insects on the outside. First Graders helped remove the clods of sod.
Students from the South Whidbey Academy turned over the cover crops the tractor couldn’t get to, and checked out the garlic they’d planted in the fall. It’s growing quite well!
New season kale, broccoli, spinach, lettuce and carrots were planted in the hoophouse. Since it’s been a warm February, we also took a chance to put some kale and lettuce out in the field. Kale salads are now popular at the High School, so the sooner we can deliver our farm fresh veggies, the better.
They seem to have survived their handling and are growing!
