So here are some of my pictures that I took today.
My spring lettuce. The hail that we got last week set the lettuce back a bit, but it is finally starting to take off again. Looks small, but it grows fast, and should be ready for picking just in time for the beginning of the markets (June 7th Valley City).
My hoophouse full of plants and some of my pallets full of plants.
Some of my dahlias in my hoophouse, that I will be selling as cut flowers at the markets this year. A few are already beginning to bud up, and will be flowering before I know it.
Pallets full of plants. The one with the shade cloth on it I use to get my plants use to being outside a couple of days before they get exposed to full sun. Since I start a lot of my plants inside under lights it is a good idea to keep them out of direct sunlight for a couple of days to get them use to the sun so that they do not get burned.
A pallet full of some of my sweet potatoes, parsley and some other herbs.
My plants in my basement waiting for room to be moved outside or night temperatures to get just a little bit warmer.
Since I will be doing a bunch of planting this weekend I will have to take some more pictures of out at the farm and post them. It is going to be so nice to finally get out at the farm and do some work. One thing is for sure, it has been one long and rough winter and spring.
Just wanted to let everyone know that Valley City Farmers Market will be starting on Saturday, June 7th this year and Brunswick Farmers Market will be starting on Sunday, June 15th.
