Since the high school is now able to come out here a lot more often we’ve been putting a lot of effort into getting the farm project up and running. Every dirst half of the day we’re putting in irrigation and planting transplants/ direct seeding vegetables.
The garden is up and running good. Every day we’re adding more and more irrigation and transplants still. We now have 5 rows of spinach planted and a couple of rows of golden acre cabbage and early jersey cabbage transplants in the ground. We think the spinach was too hot when we planted it so we will probably re plant it in the coming week. Broccoli transplants should be coming up this week as well so we can plant them.
We’ve also begun work on clearing out part of the fish house to make a chicken coop and making metal stands for the aquaponics system. Lots of people from town have been really helpful with the project as well. A local sign maker even offered to make us a sign for the produce shop when it comes time to harvest.
